了不起的盖茨比(宴会精彩段落)

at 3年前  ca 了不起的盖茨比英文原文  pv 3466  by 名著  

The lights grow brighter as the earth lurches【蹒跚而行】 away from the sun, and now the orchestra is playing yellow cocktail music, and the opera of voices pitches a key higher. Laughter is easier minute by minute, spilled with prodigality【挥霍;浪费;奢侈】, tipped out 【倾泻而出】at a cheerful word. The groups change more swiftly【迅速的;立刻的】, swell【膨胀】 with new arrivals, dissolve and form in the same breath; already there are wanderers, confident 【这里指不害怕社交,脸皮较厚】girls who weave【迂回(穿插)行进】 here and there among the stouter and more stable【厚实稳定的人群】, become for a sharp【(变化、动作、感情等)强烈的】, joyous moment the centre of a group, and then, excited with triumph, glide【滑行】 on through the sea-change of faces and voices and color under the constantly changing light.

当地球转离太阳,灯光便更为灿亮。此刻乐队正在奏黄色鸡尾酒会音乐,于是大合唱般的人声又提高了一个音凋。欢笑来得更轻易了,每分每秒都泼洒得比先前更自在豪放,简单说笑一句就能引发哄堂大笑。人群的变化很迅速,随着新来的客人而增大,一眨眼分散后又立即重新聚集。已经有一些人在四处逛荡--脸皮厚的年轻姑娘来回穿梭于厚实稳定的人群,一会儿在片刻的欢腾中成为一群人注意的中心,一会儿又怀着胜利的兴奋,在不断变化的灯光下轻快穿过变幻不定的面孔、声音和色彩。

Suddenly one of the gypsies, in trembling opal[蛋白石(常用于珠宝首饰)], seizes a cocktail out of the air, dumps it down for courage and, moving her hands like Frisco【爵士舞星, dances out alone on the canvas platform. A momentary hush【寂静】; the orchestra leader varies his rhythm obligingly【殷勤地】 for her, and there is a burst of chatter as the erroneous【错误的】 news goes around that she is Gilda Gray’s 【纽约舞星】understudy【替角】 from the FOLLIES【剧团】. The party has begun.

了不起的盖茨比(宴会精彩段落)

          忽然间,这群吉卜赛人式的女郎中有一个,晃荡着身上的猫眼石,一伸手就抓来一杯鸡尾酒一饮而尽,壮了胆子,然后手舞足蹈,独自在帆布舞台上表演弗里斯科式的舞蹈。然后出现了片刻的寂静,乐队指挥殷勤地为她改变了拍子,随后突然响起了一阵叽叽喳喳的说话声,因为有谣言传开,说她是剧团的吉尔德·格雷的替角。宴会正式开始了。
