                    An Hour before Sunrise

                    日出前的一小时

                     

                    Charles Dickens

                    查尔斯·狄更斯

                     

                    An hour before sunrise in the city there is all air of cold, solitary desolation about the noiseless streets, which we are accustomed to see thronged at other times by a busy, eager crowd, and over the quiet, closely shut buildings which throughout the day are swarming with life.(1) The drunken, the dissipated, and tile criminal(2) have disappeared; the more sober and orderly part of the population have not yet awaken- ed to the labors of the day, and the stillness of death is over the streets; its very hue seems to be imparted to them(3), cold and lifeless as they look in the gray, somber light of day- break. A partially opened bedroom window here and there bespeaks the heat of the weather and the uneasy slumbers of its occupant; and the dim scanty flicker of a light through the blinds of yonder windows denotes the chamber of watching and sickness. Save for that sad light, the streets present no signs of life, nor the houses of habitation(4).

                    中文译文:

                    英文注释:

                    (1)An hour before sunrise…swarming with life:

                    句中about the noiseless streets与over the…buildings是并列成分,作there is an air of cold, solitary desolation的地点状语which we are accustomed.to see thronged…by a busy,eager crowd是修饰streets的定语从句,其中thronged by…是分词短语, 作which的宾语补语。

                    (2)the drunken,the dissipated,and the criminal:

                    醉鬼,放荡者,犯罪分子。

                    (3)its very hue seems to be imparted to them:

                    这句中its指death;its very hue=the very hue of death; them指the streets。

                    (4)nor the houses of habitation=nor do the houses present any signs of habitation。
