卡尔·克林顿·范·多伦(Carl Clinton Van Doren)名言

The race of man, while sheep in credulity, are wolves for conformity.

人的种族,当绵羊轻信的时候,是从众的狼。

The two most common charges against the older fiction, that it pleased wickedly and that it taught nothing, had broken down before the discovery, except in illiberal sects, that the novel is fitted both for honest use and for pleasure.

对旧小说最常见的两项指控,即它取悦邪恶,而它什么也没教,在发现这部小说既适合诚实使用,又适合享乐之前就已经支离破碎了,除了不自由的教派。

In fiction, too, after the death of Cooper the main tendency for nearly a generation was away from the conquest of new borders to the closer cultivation, east of the Mississippi, of ground already marked.

在小说中,库珀死后,近一代人的主要趋势也是从征服新的疆界转向密西西比河以东更近距离的耕种,这片土地已经被标记。

IT is mere coincidence that Cooper was born in the year which produced The Power of Sympathy and that when he died Uncle Tom's Cabin was passing through its serial stage, and yet the limits of his life mark almost exactly the first great period of American fiction.

巧合的是,库珀出生的那一年产生了同情的力量,而他去世时,汤姆叔叔的小屋正经历着一系列的阶段,然而他的生命极限几乎正好标志着美国小说的第一个伟大时期。

Melville brought to the task a sound knowledge of actual whaling, much curious learning in the literature of the subject, and, above all, an imagination which worked with great power upon the facts of his own experience.

梅尔维尔给这项任务带来了对实际捕鲸的渊博知识,在这方面的文学作品中有许多令人好奇的知识,最重要的是,他对自己经历的事实产生了极大的想象力。

卡尔·克林顿·范·多伦

The region west of the Mississippi continued in the popular mind to be a strange land for which the reports of explorers and travellers did the work of fiction, and Cooper's Prairie had few followers.

在大众心目中,密西西比河以西的地区仍然是一片陌生的土地,探险家和旅行者的报告都是为这片土地写的小说,而库珀的大草原几乎没有追随者。

卡尔·克林顿·范·多伦

Yes, it's hard to write. But it's harder not to.

是的,很难写。但要想不做就更难了。

卡尔·克林顿·范·多伦

Although by 1851 tales of adventure had begun to seem antiquated, they had rendered a large service to the course of literature: they had removed the stigma, for the most part, from the word novel.

尽管到了1851年,冒险故事开始显得过时了,但它们为文学事业提供了巨大的服务:它们在很大程度上消除了小说这个词的污名。
