  • The Empty Lunch-tin

    David Malouf;云芳;

    短篇小说 The Empty Lunch-tin 写的是窗外伫立在草坪上的一个年轻人。由于他的外表与房子女主人的故去的儿子有相似之处,勾起了她对儿子 Greg 的怀念。Greg 虽然已经死去七年,但是作为母亲她能想象出他在15岁、17岁、20岁该长成什么样子。Greg 喜欢她做的一种花生饼干,由于她把窗外的年轻人当作 Greg,地立即和面、烘烤,做出了饼干。但当饼干做好,正准备去送给那个年轻人时,她的理智阻止她去做如此愚蠢的事。她甚至把 Greg 的房间清理出来,准备邀请年轻人住进来,自然,她也没有勇气去实现这一计划。文中对于母亲思子之情写得细腻感人,对于她的理智与感情的冲撞刻画得尤为巧妙,不愧为大手笔的佳作。

  • Waltzing Matilda

    A.B.帕特森;夷则;

    Waltzing Matilda 是澳大利亚著名诗人 A.B.帕特森(A.B.Pa-terson,亦称‘Banjo’Paterson,1864-1941)创作的民谣体诗歌,从19世纪末直到今天它一直是澳大利亚脍炙人口的诗篇,也是澳大利亚人最喜欢唱的一支歌,有人甚至建议把它定为国歌。这首诗讲的是一个穷困的流浪者在路边拣了一只羊羔,塞在了包里,羊的主人和警察发现后穷追不舍,最后流浪人跳进了水塘,不幸被淹死,死后每晚在池溏附近都能听到他的鬼魂的叫声。诗篇充满了对于下层人民的同情与对权威反抗的意识,人们认为这是澳洲人民族性格的一部分,由此不难看出为什么这首诗歌历经一个世纪却仍为人们所传诵。

  • PARTYING ON PARQUET

    Angelo Loukakis;佚林;

    Partying on Parquet 写的是年轻人 Steve 从家里搬出来以后组织的首次聚会。他事先做了充分的准备,但是,由于缺乏经验仍不免出些差错。尽管如此,他仍然很满足,因为他尝到了独立生活的幸福滋味。小说自始至终采取了倒叙的手法。聚会已经结束,朋友们都已离去,Steve 坐在那里回味着刚刚发生过的一幕又一幕。从文化的角度看,这篇小说告诉我们西方国家年轻人的心态,以及他们怎样开 party,在 party 上都吃些什么,喝些什么以及谈论什么话题。这对我们了解西方文化无疑是有所裨益的。

  • THE THORN BIRDS

    C. McCullough;天涧;

    《荆棘鸟》是澳大利亚出生的女作家麦卡洛于1977车在美国发表的长篇小说,是七十年代轰动美国的十大畅销书之一。后被拍成长达十几小时的多集电视连续剧,又成为各家电视台晚上黄金时间抢播的热门节目。《荆棘鸟》是一部传奇式的家世小说。小说描写了主人公麦琪(Maggie)坎坷的一生。从纯情朴实的少女到鬓发斑白的老妇,在半个多世纪里麦琪经历了家庭和个人所遭遇的各种苦难与不幸。但是她从不屈服。她的一生是不屈不挠地与命运之神顽强拼搏的一生。贯穿全书的线索是麦琪与拉尔夫神父(Ralph)之间的爱情纠葛。拉尔夫比麦琪年长十几岁,又是严守教规的神父。而麦琪却偏偏执著地爱着他,力图以自己的感情力量将拉尔夫从圣坛拉到自己的身边。拉尔夫是麦琪一家的世交,他对麦琪有着无限的恋情,但又无法摆脱强加在身上的禁欲主义的教规。小说正是围绕着他们之间的这种爱情纠葛,能们面临的现实与内心的矛盾和斗争所展开的。故事情节描写细腻,动人心弦。这里刊登的是拉尔夫在赴意大利罗马升任红衣大主教之前,到孤岛上与养病的麦琪相会的一段。在这与外界隔绝的小岛上,拉尔夫没有暴露身分的恐惧,也无法抵挡凡人尘世的感情诱惑,终于将麦琪搂入自己的怀抱,与麦琪在海边的别墅共享了几日的良辰美景。这次短短的会面虽然没有改变故事的最终结局,但对于麦琪米说却是一次胜利,一次小小的胜利。她必竟战胜了上帝,使拉尔夫摆脱了教规的束缚,接收了自己的爱,虽然只有短短的几天。
