Dead-Eye Bean-神投手

更新时间:2010-03-10    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语阅读网

Dead-Eye Bean
    In 1944 we had a new student named Roger——the first black student in our school, and everyone was unfriendly to him. The other kids weren't bad children; they were just copying their parents. But when you are twelve years old, you're just starting to have your own opinions about things. I knew this could be a very important moment in their education. So I wanted to do something to change their opinions.
    I decided I had to try to make Roger into someone special Not like a teacher's pet——I wanted the other children to start seeing him as a human being, not just a dark shape in the back room. So I went after him with questions in every class. He was a bright little boy, and it was easy enough to make him appear smart. I was pretty pleased because I could see Roger becoming more confident and other kids stopped being so nasty  to him.
    But you know what really changed everything? One day I could see Roger's mind was wandering, and without thinking I threw an eraser in his direction. I only meant to get his attention, but the eraser hit his hand and sent his pencil flying. The whole class roared! And afterwards, of course, all the kids went up to Roger to laugh with him about it. That's how he became someone special and other kids began to talk to him and make friends with him.  And that's how I became "DeadEye Bean."
[点评]
    这是一篇故事式记叙文。标题中的bean在美国口语中,作为动词,意思是“用……击中人的头部”,dead—eye意为“绝对准确的”,因此Dead—EyeBean可理解为“神投手”(bean在此转化为名词)。Dead—Eye Bean在此文中是双关语:第一,它指的是老师用橡皮擦击中罗杰手巾的铅笔一事;第一,老师实现了自己要改变孩子们对罗杰的看法及态度的目标。文章构思非常巧妙。作者行告诉我们他的意图和打算,而令她也没想到的是:由于一件偶然的事情,她的愿望得以实现。
[参考译文]
神投手
    1940年,我们接收了一名新同学,名叫罗杰。他是学校的第一位黑人学生,大家都对他很不友好。其他孩子也不是坏孩子,他们只是在学父母的样子。但是,一个人在12岁时,正是开始对事情有自己的看法的时候。
    我知道这在他们的受教育过程中是很重要的一个时刻。所以,我想做点什么来改变一下他们的看法。
    我决定我得先尽量把罗杰弄成一个特别的人。不是象老师所宠爱的那种——我是想让其他孩子开始把他当作一个人看,而不只是教室后面的一个黑影子。因此,每节课上我都问他问题。他是一个聪明的小男孩,很容易让他表现得很棒。我很高兴,因为我看得山罗杰越来越有信心,而其他孩子也不再对他使坏。
    但是你知道是什么真正改变了这一切的吗?有一天,看见罗杰心不在焉,我不加思索就把一块橡皮擦朝他扔过去。我只是想提醒他注意,但是橡皮擦击中了他的手,把他手中的铅笔打得飞转起来。全班人都沸腾了!后来,当然是全班孩子们都围过去和罗杰一起笑这事。这就是他是如何成为特殊的人,孩子们是如何开始和他说话,同他交朋友的。这也是我怎么会成为“神投手”的。
