       6.《Let Your Mind Alone!》(2011-5-12)James Thurber的书,重读。

P138

Once I went with Madame Gordiaut and her daughter, who was about seven but was peaked and whiny and looked twelve to a village fair in Cassis. The little girl led the family donkey by his halter. It turned out when we got there that they were going to offer the donkey for sale; it seems that they offered him for sale every year at the fair. Madame hung a little sign around his neck saying that he was for sale; she had carried the sign to the fair wrapped in a newspaper. Nobody bought the donkey, but one man stepped up and asked how old he was. The little girl replied, “Twelve years!” Madame Goriaut flew into one of her rages and cuffed the child to the ground with the back of her hand. “But he has only eight years, Monsieur!” she bellowed at the man, who was moving away. She followed him, bellowing, but he evaded her and she returned, still bellowing. She told me later that the donkey was twenty-for years old. Her daughter, she said, would make some man a miserable wife one day.

 

7.《The Wonderful O》(2011-5-13)James Thurber的童话,文字游戏特点突出。我意这种作品是翻不出来的。

 

8.《The 13 Clocks》(2011-5-14)。James Thurber的童话。里面有比较酷的一句:"We all have flaws," the Duke said. "Mine is being wicked."

 

9.《The White Deer》(2011-5-19)。这本可能是瑟伯篇幅最长的童话,借用了传统童话的不少桥段,又有他自己的不少特点,包括文字游戏等。

 

10.《Further Fables For Our Time》。Thurber的寓言集,之所以叫“further”,因为以前已经出过一本Fables for Our Time and Famous Poems Illustrated,那本只看过选段。瑟伯的寓言,借用伊索寓言的形式,旧瓶装新酒,时时闪耀着智慧。

 

摘:

 

“I want to see what's in the wood," the fountain said. "I want to have adventures to cherish and regret.

 

Those who live in castles in the air have nowhere to go but down. - James Thurber

 

最近几个月总共看了十几本James Thurber的书,可以说把他的作品十之八九都看过了。感谢孔新人同学借书。
