Mrs. Dashwood entered into all their feelings with a warmth which left her no inclination for checking this excessive display of them. To her it was but the natural consequence of a strong affection in a young and ardent mind.

达什伍德太太完全体谅他们的心情,她只觉得心里热呼呼的,哪里还顾得上阻止他们感情的过于外露。在她看来,这仅仅是热情奔放的年轻人倾心相爱的必然表现。

This was the season of happiness to Marianne. Her heart was devoted to Willoughby, and the fond attachment to Norland, which she brought with her from Sussex, was more likely to be softened than she had thought it possible before, by the charms which his society bestowed on her present home.

这是玛丽安的幸福时刻。她把心献给了威洛比。她从苏塞克斯来到这里时,还对诺兰庄园满怀深情,认为这种感情什么时候也不会淡薄。可是如今,威洛比的到来给她现在的家带来了魅力,她对诺兰庄园的一片深情就有可能淡薄下去。

Elinor's happiness was not so great. Her heart was not so much at ease, nor her satisfaction in their amusements so pure. They afforded her no companion that could make amends for what she had left behind, nor that could teach her to think of Norland with less regret than ever. Neither Lady Middleton nor Mrs. Jennings could supply to her the conversation she missed; although the latter was an everlasting talker, and from the first had regarded her with a kindness which ensured her a large share of her discourse. She had already repeated her own history to Elinor three or four times; and had Elinor's memory been equal to her means of improvement, she might have known very early in their acquaintance all the particulars of Mr. Jenning's last illness, and what he said to his wife a few minutes before he died.

埃丽诺倒不感到这么幸福。她的心里并不那么安宁,对于各项娱乐并不那么真心欢喜,因为这些娱乐既不能为她提供一个伙伴,借以代替她撇在诺兰庄园的那个人,又不能开导她减少对诺兰庄园的思恋哀惜之情。无论米德尔顿夫人还是詹宁斯太太,都不能为她提供她所留恋的那种谈话,尽管后者是个喋喋不休的健谈家,并且从一开始就很优待她,使她得以较多地聆听她的谈论。她已经早把自己的履历向埃丽诺反复讲了三四遍。埃丽诺只要没有白长这么大,记性还可以的话,她或许早在她们刚认识时,就了解到詹宁斯先生最后一场病的详细情况,以及他临终前几分钟对他太太说了些什么话。

Lady Middleton was more agreeable than her mother only in being more silent. Elinor needed little observation to perceive that her reserve was a mere calmness of manner with which sense had nothing to do. Towards her husband and mother she was the same as to them; and intimacy was therefore neither to be looked for nor desired. She had nothing to say one day that she had not said the day before. Her insipidity was invariable, for even her spirits were always the same; and though she did not oppose the parties arranged by her husband, provided every thing were conducted in style and her two eldest children attended her, she never appeared to receive more enjoyment from them than she might have experienced in sitting at home;-- and so little did her presence add to the pleasure of the others, by any share in their conversation, that they were sometimes only reminded of her being amongst them by her solicitude about her troublesome boys.

如果说米德尔顿夫人比她母亲令人合意些,那只是在于她比较少言寡语。埃丽诺不用仔细观察就能发现,她之所以少言寡语,只是因为她性情稳静,和理智毫无关系。她对她丈夫、母亲和别人一样,都是这副样子,因此不能企望她会亲密一些。她除了重复前一天说过的话之外,别无他言。她的漠然寡趣是无可改变的,因为即使她的心情也总是一成不变的。对于丈夫安排的各种聚会,只要一切都办得体面气派,两个大孩子又能跟着她,她也并不表示反对。但是,她似乎从来不显得比坐在家里快乐些。她虽然也出席,但从不介入众人的交谈,因而不能给别人增添乐趣,有时只有当她关照那些调皮捣蛋的孩子时,才知道她在场。
