The Garden of Wonderful Trees
美丽的伊甸园


(美)温德尔 著


清华大学出版社

前言


在远古时代,诗人们和编故事的人们构想了许多关于公主与王子、魔鬼与天使、国王与平民、动物与智者、美女与勇士等传说,这些故事由一代代人口述着流传下来。后来人们把它们变成了文字,这些奇妙的故事就被记录下来。这些被记录下来的故事一般是寓言故事、神话传说、历史故事和名人传奇等,它们传诵的主要对象是青少年,是每个民族文化记忆中的核心内容,它们可以统称为传说或童话。它们以口承和文字形式代代相传绵绵不绝,既延续着一个个历久弥新的故事与文本的记载,同时也传递着一种精神的力量。世界上几乎每一个国家都重视对本国青少年的童话教育,特别是源于世界各地的著名童话故事教育,如中国的“花木兰”,丹麦的“丑小鸭”,德国的“小红帽”,英国的“亚瑟王”,俄罗斯的“伊凡王子”,印度的“月亮里的兔子”,日本的“拇指太郎”,中世纪古希腊的“农夫和蛇”等。


基于以上原因,我们认为编写源于世界各地的美丽传说故事读本,对加强当代中国青少年学生素质教育和人文修养是非常有帮助的。作为世界童话宝库的一部分,本书内容取材于布兰奇·温德尔改编的圣经童话故事。这些美丽的传说故事之所以被选入本书,不仅因为它们具有内在美,具有鲜明的东方特色,而且是因为它们为世界传说与神话文学宝库增添了无限的生机。阅读本书,让我们不得不惊叹古人的美妙想象和精神生活。这些故事不仅在于内容的经典性和表达的完美性,而且要蕴含文化的理念和价值,让人们得到人文的熏陶,青少年读者可以从中得到有益的启示。


国内也曾有此类书出版,但主要集中在两个方面:一种是中文翻译版,另一种是中英文对照版。其中的中英文对照读本比较受青少年读者的欢迎,这主要是得益于中国人热衷于学习英文的大环境。从英文学习的角度来看,直接使用纯英文的学习资料更有利于英语学习。考虑到对英文内容背景的了解有助于英文阅读,使用中文导读应该是一种比较好的方式,也可以说是该类型书的第三种版本形式。采用中文导读而非中英文对照的方式进行编排,这样有利于国内读者摆脱对英文阅读依赖中文注释的习惯。在中文导读中,我们尽力使其贴近原作的精髓,也尽可能保留原作风格。我们希望能够编出为当代中国青少年读者所喜爱的经典读本。读者在阅读英文故事之前,可以先阅读中文导读内容,这样有利于了解故事背景,从而加快阅读速度。同时,为了读者更好地理解故事内容,书中加入了大量的插图。


本书主要内容由王勋、纪飞编译。参加本书故事素材搜集整理及编译工作的还有郑佳、刘乃亚、赵雪、左新杲、黄福成、冯洁、徐鑫、马启龙、王业伟、王旭敏、陈楠、王多多、邵舒丽、周丽萍、王晓旭、李永振、孟宪行、熊红华、胡国平、熊建国、徐平国、王小红等。限于我们的文学素养和英语水平,书中难免会有不当之处,我们衷心希望读者朋友批评指正。

1.美丽的伊甸园
The Garden of Wonderful Trees


导读


在东方一个奇热无比的国度里有一个神树园,园门由手握喷火宝剑的天使把守着。


离奢靡的大城市很远的地方住着一些以畜牧为生的帐篷人,他们在“流浪之地”游牧,是上帝忠诚的信徒。母亲们告诉孩子们上帝创世的故事:她们说上帝在连续六天里每天创造一样新事物,第七天便休息了。第六天上帝依照自己的形象造了男人,又给他一个温柔美貌的女人做妻子,让他们到一个叫做伊甸园的美丽的花园去住。


上帝在伊甸园种了许多神树。那一对被叫做亚当与夏娃的男女可以吃花园里的所有果子,唯有那棵智慧树例外。


一天夏娃在智慧树附近看到一条大蛇,蛇告诉她上帝不让他们吃这棵树的果子是因为怕他们吃了后会同他一样无所不能。望着可口诱人的果子,夏娃终于抵不住诱惑吃了它。而后又给了亚当一些。他们吃完后相互凝视对方,忽然觉得痛苦,羞愧难当。


上帝知道后将他们赶出了伊甸园,并惩罚蛇从此再也不能站立。


几百年后,有个叫摩西的人把这些事记述了下来,与其他美丽的传说一起编入了一本叫《创世纪》的伟大的书中,这书现在已成为《圣经》的一部分。

上帝创造夏娃


DO you see this picture of an angel with a sword that looks as if it were on fire?Well,this angel was once set to guard the gates of a garden-a garden of wonderful trees. This garden was in the East,in a strange,hot country,where you may sometimes find miles and miles of wind-tossed sand,and sometimes high,rocky mountains,and sometimes wide rivers that flow between banks of tall reeds. A part of it was called“ The Land of Nod,”which means the “Land of Wandering.”In this country there were big cities,long since fallen into ruins,but once fine and strong,with kings\' palaces built inside their towered walls.


Here lived people who could make beautiful things in silver and gold and brass,who could carve in ivory and mould delicate vases upon potters\' wheels. They went out hunting lions and other wild beasts in the desert,and came back to banquets where music was played to them as they ate and drank. And at the kings\' courts were men who called themselves magicians,and thought that they could read the future in the water,or the sand,or sometimes in the stars.


Away from the great cities,where the kings and princes were often very wicked,lived the people of the Tents. They had sheep and cattle for property,and they moved through the Land of Wandering,passing from place to place. Some of them were very rich and owned beautiful things in silver and gold,though they did not build temples and houses. But the greatest treasure they had,greater than any jewel that ever shone,was their belief in God.


It was of God that they told in all their stories,and sang in all their songs. The little dark-haired,dark-eyed boys and girls who played about the tent doors,or sat near their mothers at sunset,never tired of hearing the beautiful tales. Some of their grown-up brothers had harps and cymbals,and were taught to make music and to dance,not for mere pleasure,but for worship of the Great God to whose people they belonged. Other nations about them prayed to the sun,or the moon,or even to big stone pillars set up in the temples of the hills. But the children of the Tent-people prayed to God alone.


Among other tales,the mothers tried to tell the children the story of how God made the world. They said it was made in Six Wonderful Days-what we call the Creation. Every day,they explained,for six days running,God made something beautiful and new. The first of all was Light. And then He made the blue skies and seas,the mountains and the meadows,the waving trees,the sun,moon and stars,the fishes,the singing birds and all the animals,great and small. And on the seventh day He rested,and saw that all the things which He had made were good.


The mothers could not explain these Six Wonderful Days of God,nor say how long or how short they had been. They only knew that the “evening and the morning”- not the morning and the evening-made each one. Perhaps years and years of quiet twilight lay in between. But they told how,on the sixth day,God made man in His own image,and afterwards gave him a beautiful garden to live in,and a fair sweet woman to be his wife.


A river flowed through this blossoming garden,and afterwards became four,which watered the sandy country in which were built the big cities. But the first crystal springs of the river were in Eden,where God had planted the Garden of Wonderful Trees. How wistf
