序言Preface

《飘》是美国女作家玛格丽特·米切尔(1900—1949)十年磨一剑的作品,称得上是一部经典的爱情巨著。它也是玛格丽特·米切尔短暂的一生中唯一的一部小说作品。故事讲述了美国南北战争和战后重建时期,女主人公郝思嘉曲折、哀婉的爱情与婚姻故事。美国南北战争前夕,生活在南方的少女郝思嘉,美貌而叛逆,她爱上了英俊的小伙子卫希礼,但卫希礼却选择了善良的媚兰。出于妒恨,郝思嘉嫁给了媚兰的哥哥查理。南北战争爆发后,卫希礼和查理应征入伍。查理不幸去世,郝思嘉成了寡妇。为了生活,战后的郝思嘉违心地同弗兰克结婚。不久之后,弗兰克去世,郝思嘉再次成为寡妇。郝思嘉不得已又和白瑞德结婚。不久,经过太多磨难的白瑞德对她已不太信任,下决心和她离婚。当爱离她而去时,郝思嘉才明白真爱自己和她所爱的人。


《飘》就其性质来说,是取材于美国南北战争及战后南方重建时期的一部历史传奇。美国自建国以来,迄今不过短短二百多年,其间南北战争消灭了南方奴隶制度,为资本主义发展扫清了障碍,是美国历史上的一个重要里程碑。然而时至今日,美国社会中的种族歧视现象并未彻底消除,当年奴隶制留下的阴影,依旧时隐时现。现在我们回过头去,看看美国这一历史阶段中南部社会广阔的生活场景,会有助于加深对美国社会的理解。《飘》(Gone with thewind)书名直译应为“随风飘逝”,它出自书中女主人公郝思嘉之口,大意是说那场战争像飓风一般卷走了她的“整个世界”,她家的农场也“随风飘逝”了。郝思嘉以这一短语抒发了南方农场主的思想感情,作者用来作为书名,也表明了她对南北战争的观点,这与本书内容是完全一致的。


本书的特点:


1.本书的写作技巧富有高超的艺术性,对书中主要人物内心世界的刻画,鞭辟入里,发人深思。


2.纯英文版,权威版本,原汁原味,本色地呈现原作真实的经典。


《飘》既是一首人类爱情的绝唱,又是一幅反映社会政治、经济、道德诸多方面巨大而深刻变化的宏大历史画卷。

Chapter 1


Scarlett O\'Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm as the Tarleton twins were. In her face were too sharply blended the delicate features of her mother, a Coast aristocrat of French descent, and the heavy ones of her forid Irish father.But it was an arresting face, pointed of chin,square of jaw.Her eyes were pale green without a touch of hazel, starred with bristly black lashes and slightly tilted at the ends.Above them, her thick black brows slanted upward, cutting a startling oblique line in her magnolia-white skin—that skin so prized by Southern women and so carefully guarded with bonnets, veils and mittens against hot Georgia suns.


Seated with Stuart and Brent Tarleton in the cool shade of the porch of Tara, her father\'s plantation, that bright April afternoon of 1861,she made a pretty picture. Her new green fowered-muslin dress spread its twelve yards of billowing material over her hoops and exactly matched the fat-heeled green morocco slippers her father had recently brought her from Atlanta.The dress set off to perfection the seventeen-inch waist, the smallest in three counties, and the tightly ftting basque showed breasts well matured for her sixteen years.But for all the modesty of her spreading skirts, the demureness of hair netted smoothly into a chignon and the quietness of small white hands folded in her lap, her true self was poorly concealed.The green eyes in the carefully sweet face were turbulent, willful, lusty with life,distinctly at variance with her decorous demeanor.Her manners had been imposed upon her by her mother\'s gentle admonitions and the sterner discipline of her mammy;her eyes were her own.


On either side of her, the twins lounged easily in their chairs, squinting at the sunlight through tall mint-garnished glasses as they laughed and talked, their long legs, booted to the knee and thick with saddle muscles, crossed negligently. Nineteen years old, six feet two inches tall, long of bone and hard of muscle, with sunburned faces and deep auburn hair, their eyes merry and arrogant, their bodies clothed in identical blue coats and mustard-colored breeches, they were as much alike as two bolls of cotton.


Outside,the late afternoon sun slanted down in the yard, throwing into gleaming brightness the dogwood trees that were solid masses of white blossoms against the background of new green. The twins\'horses were hitched in the driveway, big animals, red as their masters\'hair;and around the horses\'legs quarreled the pack of lean, nervous possum hounds that accompanied Stuart and Brent wherever they went.A little aloof, as became an aristocrat,lay a black-spotted carriage dog, muzzle on paws, patiently waiting for the boys to go home to supper.


Between the hounds and the horses and the twins there was a kinship deeper than that of their constant companionship. They were all healthy, thoughtless young animals,sleek, graceful, high-spirited, the boys as mettlesome as the horses they rode,mettlesome and dangerous but, withal, sweet-tempered to those who knew how to handle them.


Although born to the ease of plantation life, waited on hand and foot since infancy, the faces of the three on the porch were neither slack nor soft. They had the vigor and alertness of country people who have spent all their lives in the open and troubled their heads very little with dull things in books.Life in the north Georgia county of Clayton was still new and, according to the standards of Augusta, Savannah and Charleston, a little crude.The more sedate and older sections of the South looked down their noses at the up-country Georgians, but here in north Georgia, a lack of the niceties of classical education carried no shame, provided a man was smart in the things that mattered.And raising good cotton, riding well, shooting straight, dancing lightly, squiring the ladies with elegance and carrying one\'s liquor like a gentleman were the things that mattered.


In these accomplishments the twins excelled, and they were equally outstanding in their notorious inability to learn anything contained between the covers of books. Their family had more money, more horses, more slaves tha
