阿德里安·马约尔(Adrienne Mayor)名言

Before I began concentrating on writing, in my free time I was an artist, making and selling etchings illustrating stories based on my readings in classical literature.

在我开始专注于写作之前,我在业余时间是一名艺术家,根据我在古典文学作品中的读物制作和出售刻画插图的蚀刻版画。

The name 'Amazon' was not originally Greek; linguists believe it derived from the ancient Iranian word for 'warrior.'

“亚马逊”这个名字最初不是希腊文; 语言学家认为,它源于古老的伊朗“战士”一词。 '

From about 700 B.C. to A.D. 500, the vast territory of Scythia, stretching from the Black Sea to China, was home to diverse but culturally related nomads. Known as Scythians to Greeks, Saka to the Persians, and Xiongnu to the Chinese, the steppe tribes were masters of horses and archery.

从大约700 B. C。 到A。 D. 500,从黑海一直延伸到中国的Scythia广阔领土,是多种多样但与文化相关的游牧民族的家园。 草原部落被称为希腊人Scythians,波斯人被称为Saka,中国人被称为Xiongnu,草原部落是骑马和射箭的大师。

I think the key to the whole appeal of Amazons is the egalitarian society. There was once a time and place where equality was taken for granted - it was logical and necessary - and I think most people can get the message that if it happened once, it could happen again.

我认为,亚马逊整体吸引力的关键在于平等社会。 曾经有一个时间和地点将平等视为理所当然-这是合乎逻辑的和必要的-我认为大多数人都可以得到这样的信息,即一旦发生一次,它就有可能再次发生。

That whole heroic notion of the women warriors known as Amazons is extremely appealing. It was appealing in antiquity, and, throughout the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, they're always portrayed as heroic, courageous, and the equals of men, and that's just extremely attractive and has been since antiquity.

女战士的整个英雄概念被称为亚马逊。 它在古代很有吸引力,在整个中世纪,文艺复兴时期,人们总是把他们描绘成英雄,勇敢和平等的人,这是极其诱人的,并且自上古以来就一直如此。

In the non-Greek stories, Persia, Egypt, even China, Central Asia, in oral traditions and written literature, anyone who fights Amazons admires their courage and beauty, and they want to be allies of the Amazon; they don't wanna kill them.

在非希腊的故事中,在波斯,埃及,甚至中国,中亚,在口头传统和书面文学中,任何与亚马逊争斗的人都钦佩他们的勇气和美丽,他们想成为亚马逊的盟友。 他们不想杀死他们。

Many scholars are not used to perceiving natural knowledge expressed in mythological language. If the study of fossils was not mentioned by Aristotle or Thucydides, and it wasn't, then it just didn't exist for many classicists and ancient historians.

许多学者不习惯于以神话语言表达自然知识。 如果亚里斯多德或修昔底德没有提到化石研究,但没有提及,那么对于许多古典主义者和古代历史学家来说,它就不存在。

The tasks of paleontologists and classical historians and archaeologists are remarkably similar - to excavate, decipher and bring to life the tantalizing remnants of a time we will never see.

古生物学家,古典历史学家和考古学家的任务非常相似-挖掘,破译和使我们从未见过的诱人残迹栩栩如生。
