城里、城外,婚姻是涓涓流淌的相守歲月,如何上演一個個喜劇、悲劇?

對于彼得·布倫奇來說,生活的秘訣就是隱瞞對于朋友馬洛先生才能的質疑,以及對馬洛夫人的愛意。這場隱瞞表面上讓他們的關系穩固而安然無事,實質則是暗流涌動,而這一切是要最終爆發還是歸于沉默?

亨利·詹姆斯(Henry James)是美國小說家,文學批評家,劇作家和散文家,被一致認為是心理分析小說的開創者之一,他對人的行為的認識有獨到之處,是20世紀小說的意識流寫作技巧的先驅。

Henry James, OM (15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American-English writer who spent most of his writing career in Britain. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.

生活秘訣,人皆有之。而彼得•布倫奇的秘訣,就是從來不對他的朋友摩根•馬洛的所謂作品作出任何評價,這是他的人生最主要的成就。對此注册送28体验金的游戏平台,他深信自己無懈可擊注册送28体验金的游戏平台,絕不可能授人以柄。在任何場合,或面臨任何尷尬局面,他都不可能留下究竟是撒了謊還是說了實話的任何痕跡。即便對他這樣一個建樹頗多的男人來說,這一成就也是可圈可點的——他已年屆五旬;不曾受過婚姻的桎梏;生活精打細算,一直還過得去;多年來深愛馬洛夫人卻從未啟齒;還有最重要的,他對自己作過一番終極評價——自己生性極度恭順謙卑,然而最使他自鳴得意的,是自己在上述人生重大關頭對局面的把控能力。如此一來,他最為信任的人,正是他最有所保留的人,這著實讓人驚奇。他不能告訴馬洛先生,一看到他工作室里成倍增加的大理石雕塑,便讓人痛苦不堪,任憑時光流逝也無法有半點削減。他更不能向馬洛夫人一訴衷腸注册送28体验金的游戏平台,至少他認為,作為優秀的男人,他不能告訴馬洛夫人——他從未結婚的原因在于心中有了一個美麗的她。就如我先前所說,對于這些創作作品,彼得的成功之處不僅僅在于他沒有表露出不屑,而主要是在于他沒有使用其他方式藏匿心跡。

It was one of the secret opinions, such as we all have, of Peter Brench that his main success in life would have consisted in his never having committed himself about the work, as it was called, of his friend Morgan Mallow. This was a subject on which it was, to the best of his belief, impossible with veracity to quote him, and it was nowhere on record that he had, in the connexion, on any occasion and in any embarrassment, either lied or spoken the truth. Such a triumph had its honour even for a man of other triumphs—a man who had reached fifty, who had escaped marriage, who had lived within his means, who had been in love with Mrs Mallow for years without breathing it, and who, last but not least, had judged himself once for all. He had so judged himself in fact that he felt an extreme and general humility to be his proper portion; yet there was nothing that made him think so well of his parts as the course he had steered so often through the shallows just mentioned. It became thus a real wonder that the friends in whom he had most confidence were just those with whom he had most reserves. He couldn't tell Mrs Mallow—or at least he supposed, excellent man, he couldn't—that she was the one beautiful reason he had never married; any more than he could tell her husband that the sight of the multiplied marbles in that gentleman's studio was an affliction of which even time had never blunted the edge. His victory, however, as I have intimated, in regard to these productions, was not simply in his not having let it out that he deplored them; it was, remarkably, in his not having kept it in by anything else.
