  • “我真奇怪,他竟会和彬格莱先生这样知已。彬格莱先生的性情那么好,而且他的为人也极其和蔼可亲,怎么会跟这样一个人交起朋友来?他们怎么能够相处呢?你认识彬格莱先生吗?”After many pauses and many trials of other subjects, Elizabeth could not help reverting once more to the first, and saying:;I am astonished at his intimacy with Mr. Bingley! How can Mr. Bingley, who seems good humour itself, and is, I really believe, truly amiable, be in friendship with such a man? How can they suit each other? Do you know Mr. Bingley?;;Not at all. ;;He is a sweet-tempered, amiable, charming man. He cannot know what Mr. Darcy is. ;;Probably not; but Mr. Darcy can please where he chooses. He does not want abilities. He can be a conversible companion if he thinks it worth his while. Among those who are at all his equals in consequence, he is a very different man from what he is to the less prosperous. His pride never deserts him; but with the rich he is liberal-minded, just, sincere, rational, honourable, and perhaps agreeable--allowing something for fortune and figure. ;The whist party soon afterwards breaking up, the players gathered round the other table and Mr. Collins took his station between his cousin Elizabeth and Mrs. Phillips. The usual inquiries as to his success was made by the latter. It had not been very great; he had lost every point; but when Mrs. Phillips began to express her concern thereupon, he assured her with much earnest gravity that it was not of the least importance, that he considered the money as a mere trifle, and begged that she would not make herself uneasy.;I know very well, madam, ; said he, ;that when persons sit down to a card-table, they must take their chances of these things, and happily I am not in such circumstances as to make five shillings any object. There are undoubtedly many who could not say the same, but thanks to Lady Catherine de Bourgh, I am removed far beyond the necessity of regarding little matters. ;Mr. Wickham#39;s attention was caught; and after observing Mr. Collins for a few moments, he asked Elizabeth in a low voice whether her relation was very intimately acquainted with the family of de Bourgh.;Lady Catherine de Bourgh, ; she replied, ;has very lately given him a living. I hardly know how Mr. Collins was first introduced to her notice, but he certainly has not known her long. ;;You know of course that Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Lady Anne Darcy were sisters; consequently that she is aunt to the present Mr. Darcy. ;;No, indeed, I did not. I knew nothing at all of Lady Catherine#39;s connections. I never heard of her existence till the day before yesterday. ;;Her daughter, Miss de Bourgh, will have a very large fortune, and it is believed that she and her cousin will unite the two estates. ; Article/201107/146437。

  • Truman Capote developed a new kind of writing with his nonfiction novel, ‘In Cold Blood’Written by Dana Demange VOICE ONE:I'm Faith Lapidus.VOICE TWO: And I'm Bob Doughty with PEOPLE IN AMERICA in VOA Special English. Today we tell about Truman Capote, one of America's most famous modern writers. He invented a new kind of book called the nonfiction novel. This literary form combined factual reporting with the imaginary possibilities of storytelling. Capote's writing ability and his wild personality captured the interest of people all over the world. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Truman Capote became famous for living a wild and exciting life. He traveled a great deal and divided his time between homes in New York City and Switzerland. But he started out from more common roots.Truman was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in nineteen twenty-four. His name was Truman Streckfus Persons. When he was a very young child, Truman's mother sent him to live with her family in Monroeville, Alabama. He lived with his aunts and cousins for several years. Truman rarely saw his parents. But he did become friends with the little girl who lived next door to his family. Her name was Harper Lee. She would later grow up to be a famous writer. Her book "To Kill a Mockingbird," would earn her a Pulitzer Prize. One of the characters in the book is based on Truman as a child. VOICE TWO:Truman was a very lonely child. He later said that he felt very different from everyone around him. He said he felt he was much more intelligent and sensitive than others and feared that no one understood him. This helps explain why Truman began writing. Putting his thoughts on paper helped him feel less lonely. As a child he would write for about three hours a day after school. VOICE ONE: When Truman was about ten years old he joined his mother in New York City. She had remarried a Cuban-American businessman named Joseph Capote. Mister Capote soon became the legal parent of Truman. He renamed his stepson Truman Garcia Capote. Truman did not do well in school. He was very smart but did not like classes. He stopped attending high school when he was seventeen years old. Instead, he started working for The New Yorker magazine. And, he kept on writing. VOICE TWO:Truman Capote once said: "I had to be successful and I had to be successful early." He said that some people spent half of their lives not knowing what they were going to do. But Capote knew he wanted to be a writer and he wanted to be rich and famous. He succeeded.(MUSIC)VOICE ONE:In nineteen forty-five Truman Capote sold his first short story to a major magazine. This story, "Miriam", won a literary prize called the O.Henry Award. A publishing company soon gave him money to start working on a book. Capote was only twenty-three years old when he finished his first novel, "Other Voices, Other Rooms." It tells the story of a southern boy who goes to live with his father after his mother dies. The story is an exploration of identity. The boy learns to understand and accept that he loves men.VOICE TWO:"Other Voices, Other Rooms" was a great success. Critics praised its clarity and honesty. But the story was also disputed. It openly deals with homosexual issues of men loving men. Truman Capote had relationships with men and was not afraid of expressing this fact to the world. The photograph on the book cover also caused a dispute. The picture of Capote is intense and sexually suggestive. Capote loved shocking the public. He liked to get all kinds of publicity. Truman Capote soon became well known in the literary world. He loved rich people from important families. Capote was as famous for his personality as he was for his writing. He attended the best parties and restaurants. His small body, boyish looks, and unusual little voice became famous. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Capote wrote many more short stories and essays. In nineteen fifty-eight, he published a book called "Breakfast at Tiffany's." It has become one of the most well known stories in American culture. The main character is Holly Golightly. She is a free-spirited young woman living in New York City. Holly is very beautiful and has many lovers. She runs from party to party wearing little black dresses and dark sunglasses. But she has a mysterious past that she tries to escape. At the end of the story Holly leaves New York forever. She disappears from the lives of the men who knew her. But they can never forget her colorful personality.VOICE TWO:"Breakfast at Tiffany's" was soon made into a movie. The film stars Audrey Hepburn. She captures Holly Golightly's spirit perfectly. Here is a scene from the movie. Holly and her friend Paul are visiting Tiffany's, a very costly jewelry store. (SOUND: "Breakfast at Tiffany's")Holly: Isn't it wonderful? You see what I mean how nothing bad could ever happen to you in a place like this? It isn't that I give a hoot about jewelry except diamonds of course…like that! What do you think?Paul:Well…Holly: Of course, personally I think it would be tacky to wear diamonds before I am forty.Paul: Well, you're right. but in the mean time you should have something.Holly: I'll wait.Paul: No, I'm going to buy you a present. You bought me one -- a typewriter ribbon and it brought me luck.Holly: All right, but Tiffany's can be pretty expensive.Paul: I've got my check and …ten dollars.Holly: Oh, I wouldn't let you cash your check. But a present for ten dollars or under, that I'll accept. Of course, I don't exactly know what we're going to find at Tiffany's for ten dollars. VOICE ONE:In the late nineteen fifties Truman Capote started developing a method of writing that would revolutionize journalism. He wanted to combine the facts of reporting with the stylistic richness of storytelling. He became interested in a short New York Times report published in November of nineteen fifty-nine. The report described the murder of a family in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas. A husband, wife and two children had been shot in their home in the middle of the night.VOICE TWO:Truman Capote immediately traveled to Kansas to learn more about the killings. His childhood friend Harper Lee went with him. Together they spoke with everyone involved in the investigation. They met with police officers and people living in the town. Capote even became friends with the two killers. The writer met with them many times in jail after they were arrested. Capote spent the next few years researching what would become his next literary project. His book would give a detailed description of the murders. It would explore the effects of the killing on the town. And it would even tell the story from the point of view of the killers. VOICE ONE:But Capote became involved in a moral conflict. He could not complete his book until he knew its ending. So, he had to wait until the end of the trial to see if both killers were found guilty and put to death. As a writer he wanted to finish the story. But as a friend, it was difficult for him to watch the two men die. Capote was torn between his duty towards human life and his duty to his work. VOICE TWO:Capote worked for six years to produce his book "In Cold Blood." It was finally published in nineteen sixty-six. It immediately became an international best seller. Truman Capote had invented a whole new kind of writing. He called it the non-fiction novel. He was at the top of his profession. Here is a recording of Truman Capote from a two thousand five documentary about him. Listen to Capote's small southern voice as he talks about style:"I think one has style or one doesn't, but style is one's self. It's something that you don't, you cannot…learn. It's something that has to come from within you. And bit by bit, be arrived at and it's simply there like the color of your eyes."VOICE ONE:Truman Capote decided to celebrate his new success. In nineteen sixty-six he gave what people called the "party of the century". He invited five hundred friends for a night of eating, drinking and dancing at the Plaza Hotel in New York. Guests included famous writers, actors and important people from the media. They were told to wear either black or white formal clothing. Capote's "Black and White Ball" was one of the most famous events in the history of New York society. (MUSIC) VOICE TWO:But Truman Capote's popularity soon decreased. His drinking and drug use seriously affected his health. His writing also suffered. He published stories that insulted his rich and powerful friends. Many people no longer wanted to have anything to do with him. Capote died in ninety eighty-four. He was fifty-nine.VOICE ONE:Truman Capote's writing is still celebrated today for its clarity and style. In two thousand five the film "Capote" renewed interest in his work and personality. This little man from Alabama left an important mark on American literary culture. (MUSIC)VOICE TWO: This program was written and produced by Dana Demange.

  • Emily Dickinson, 1830-1886: The 'Belle of Amherst' Became one of America's Greatest PoetsLittle is known about her life. But her poetry remains popular today. ANNOUNCER:People in America – a program in Special English about famous Americans of the past. Now, Kay Gallant and Harry Monroe tell the story of nineteenth century poet Emily Dickinson.(MUSIC) Emily Dickinson VOICE ONE:Because I could not stop for Death —He kindly stopped for me –The carriage held but just ourselvesAnd immortality.VOICE TWO:The words are by American poet Emily Dickinson, who died in eighteen eighty-six. During her life, she published only about ten poems. Four years after her death, a few more poems were published. But her complete work did not appear until nineteen fifty-five. VOICE ONE:I'm Nobody! Who are you? Are you -- Nobody – Too? VOICE TWO:Emily Dickinson has become part of our language without really being part of our history. Some see her as the last poet of an early American tradition. Others see her as the first modern American poet. Each er seems to find a different Emily Dickinson. She remains as mysterious as she was when she was alive. VOICE ONE:Tell all the Truth but tell it slant --VOICE TWO:The truth about Emily Dickinson has been difficult to discover. Few people of her time knew who she was or what she was doing. The main facts about her life are these. She was born December tenth, eighteen thirty, in the small Massachusetts town of Amherst. She lived and died in the same house where she was born. Emily received a good education. She studied philosophy, the Latin language, and the science of plants and rocks. Emily's parents were important people in Amherst. Many famous visitors came to their house, and Emily met them. Her father was a well-known lawyer who was elected to Congress for one term. Mister Dickinson believed that women should be educated. But he also believed that women should not use their education to work outside the home. He felt their one and only task was to care for their husband and children. Emily once said: “He buys me many books, but begs me not to them, because he fears they upset the mind.”Emily wrote more than one thousand seven hundred poems. There are three books of her letters. And there are many books about her life. Some of her best work was written in the four years between eighteen fifty-eight and eighteen sixty-two. VOICE ONE:I live with Him -- I see his face --I go no more awayFor Visitor -- or Sundown--Death's single privacyDreams -- are well -- but Waking's better,If One wake at Morn --If One wake at Midnight – better --Dreaming -- of the Dawn --This is my letter to the WorldThat never wrote to me--The simple News that Nature told--With tender MajestyVOICE TWO:In those years, Emily seems to have found her "voice" as a poet. She settled into forms she used for the rest of her life. The forms are similar to those of religious music used during her lifetime. But her choice of words was unusual. She wrote that her dictionary was her best friend. Other influences were the English poet, William Shakespeare; the Christian holy book, the Bible; and the forces of nature. VOICE ONE:I ded that first robin so,But he is mastered now,And I'm accustomed to him grown--He hurts a little thoughI dared not meet the daffodils,For fear their yellow gownWould pierce me with a fashionSo foreign to my own. I could not bear the bees should come,I wished they'd stay awayIn those dim countries where they go:What word had they for me? VOICE TWO:Throughout her life, Emily asked men for advice. And then she did not follow what they told her. As a child, there was her father. Later there was her father's law partner, and a churchman she met in the city of Philadelphia. Another man who helped her was the writer Thomas Wentworth Higginson. Higginson had written a magazine story giving advice to young, unpublished writers. Emily wrote to him when she was in her early thirties. She included a few poems. Higginson wrote back and later visited Emily in Amherst. In the next few years, Emily sent him many more poems. But he did not have them published, and admitted that he did not understand Emily's poetry. Article/200803/32374。
