The Beloved

Now, the beloved can also be of any description. The most outlandish people can be the stimulus for love. A man may be a doddering great grandfather and still love only a strange girl he saw in the streets of Cheehaw one afternoon two decades past. The preacher may love a fallen woman. The beloved may be treacherous, greasy-handed, and given to evil habits. Yes, and the lover may see this as clearly as anyone else—but that does not affect the evolution of his love one whit. A most mediocre person can be the object of a love which is wild, extravagant, and beautiful as the poison lilies of the swamp. A good man may be the stimulus for a love both violent and debased, or a jabbering madman may bring about in the soul of someone a tender and simple idyll. Therefore, the value and quality of any love is determined solely by the lover himself.

It is for this reason that most of us would rather love than be loved. Almost everyone wants to be the lover. And the curt truth is that, in a deep secret way, the state of being beloved is intolerable to many. The beloved fears and hates the lover, and with the best of reasons, For the lover is forever trying to strip bare his beloved. The lover craves any possible relation with beloved, even if this experience can cause him only pain.

             Carson Mc Cullers (1917—1967):The Ballad of the Sad Cafe

被爱者

现在被爱者可以用多种描述来形容,最古怪的人是爱的促进者。一个人,可能是个步履蹒跚的老祖父,他仍在爱着,只因为二十年前在Cheehaw街道间见到一个奇怪的姑娘。牧师也许会爱上堕落的女人,被爱者也许是背叛者,有着油乎乎的手,并存在着恶劣的习惯。是的,并且爱的人和其他人一样清楚的认识到这一点—但是这一点都不能影响他的爱。一个最最普通的人也会成为爱的目标,狂野的,放纵的,美丽的爱,就像沼泽里的毒百合一样。一个好人也可能在爱的刺激下变得暴戾和恶劣,一个叽叽喳喳的疯子也可能使某个人的灵魂变得温柔,简单的如田园诗歌一般。因此,各种爱的质量和价值都只能由爱人自己定义。

正是由这个原因,我们中的大多数都更偏爱去爱人,几乎每个人都想成为爱人的人。最简略的真相就是:从一种深层次的隐秘角度看,处在被爱的状态,对于很多人来说是无法忍受的。被爱者即害怕又恨着爱人的人, 原因是,爱人的人永远都在试图剥去被爱者的面具。爱人的人渴望着与被爱者有任何可能的关系,即使这种经历只会给他们带来痛苦。
