A fox just had a sound sleep. He got up and went to the village nearby to steal some chickens. 一条狐狸美美地睡了一觉。他起床,然后到附近的村子里去偷鸡。

 

   As he approached a cottage, he found that a strong lion was shut in a stronger iron cage. He said to himself: “Serve the lion right 1” 当他走近一间茅舍时,他看见一头强壮的狮子,被关在一个更加结实的铁弄笼里。他自言自语道:“这狮子是活该啊!”

 

   The fox went to the cage and stood in front of the lion. And he began bitterly reviling the lion. 狐狸走近笼子,站在狮子面前。然后,他开始痛骂狮子。

 

   The lion kept silent for some time as if he were deaf. Finally, the lion said to the fox: 狮子沉默了一些时候,宛如他是一个聋子。最后,狮子对狐狸说道:

 

“It is not you who reviles me, but this misfortune which has fallen upon me.” “骂我的不是你,而是落在我头上的不幸。”

 

Notes:

1.       He got up and went to the village nearby…

句中的nearby是形容词,作后置定语,修饰前面的名词the village。作形容词用时,也常常放在被修饰的名词前面,比如:He went to a nearby field.(他向附近的一个田地走去。)nearby还可作副词和介词,比如:The helicopter landed nearby.(直升飞机在附近着陆。--- 副词)/ The wood is nearby the school.(树林在学校附近。)

2.       …as if he were deaf.

句中的as if常常被看成复合连词,所引导的从句,多用虚拟语气,因此,从句所表达的内容与现实相反。可翻译为“好象、宛如、仿佛”。比如:He treated me as if I were a stranger.(他待我如陌生人。)

Questions:

1.       According to the story why did the lion say that the misfortune reviled him?

A.      Because he was the king of beasts.

B.      Because he was the friend of the fox.

C.      Because he stole some chickens from a nearby village..

D.     Because he was unable to defend himself.

2.       The underlined clause “as if he were dead” in the story means _______________ .

A.      the lion had died some time before

B.      the lion pretended to be dead

C.      the lion only looked like a dead one

D.     the lion only liked a dead lion
