Our story today is called"Rappaccini's Daughter."It was written by Nathaniel Hawthorne.We will tell the story in two parts.Here is Kay Gallant with the first part of our story.Many years ago,a young man named Giovanni Guasconti left his home in Naples to study in northern Italy.He rented a small room on the top floor of a dark and ancient palace.Long ago,the building had belonged to a noble family.Now,an old woman,Signora Lisabetta,rented its rooms to students at the University of Padua.Giovanni's room had a small window.From it he could see a large garden that had many plants and flowers."Does the garden belong to you?"he asked Signora Lisabetta one day."Oh no!"she said quickly."That garden belongs to the famous doctor,Giacomo Rappaccini.People say he uses those plants to make strange kinds of medicine.He lives in that small brown house in the garden with his daughter,Beatrice."Giovanni often sat by his window to look at the garden.He had never seen so many different kinds of plants.They all had enormous green leaves and magnificent flowers in every color of the rainbow.


我们今天的故事叫做“拉帕奇尼的女儿”,是纳撒尼尔·霍桑写的。我们将分两部分讲述这个故事。这里是凯格兰特与我们的故事的第一部分。许多年前,一个叫乔瓦尼·瓜斯康蒂的年轻人离开他在那不勒斯的家到意大利北部学习。他在一座黑暗而古老的宫殿的顶层租了一个小房间。很久以前,这座建筑属于一个贵族家庭。现在,一位老妇人,莉莎贝塔夫人,把它的房间租给了帕多瓦大学的学生。乔瓦尼的房间有一扇小窗户。从那里他可以看到一个有许多植物和花的大花园。”花园是你的吗?”有一天他问莉莎贝塔夫人哦,不她很快地说那个花园是著名医生贾科莫·拉帕奇尼的。人们说他用那些植物来做奇怪的药。他和女儿比阿特丽斯住在花园里的棕色小房子里,“乔瓦尼经常坐在窗前看花园。他从未见过这么多不同种类的植物。它们都长着巨大的绿叶和五颜六色的绚丽花朵。

Giovanni's favorite plant was in a white marble vase near the house.It was covered with big purple flowers.One day,while Giovani was looking out his window,he saw an old man in a black cape walking in the garden.The old man was tall and thin.His face was an unhealthy yellow color.His black eyes were very cold.The old man wore thick gloves on his hands and a mask over his mouth and nose.He walked carefully among the plants,as if he were walking among wild animals or poisonous snakes.Although he looked at the flowers very closely,he did not touch or smell any of them.When the old man arrived at the plant with the big purple flowers,he stopped.He took off his mask and called loudly,"Beatrice!Come help me!""I am coming,Father.What do you want?"answered a warm young voice from inside the house.A young woman came into the garden.Her thick,dark hair fell around her shoulders in curls.Her cheeks were pink and her eyes were large and black.


乔瓦尼最喜欢的植物是在房子附近的一个白色大理石花瓶里。上面开满了紫色的大花。一天,当乔瓦尼往窗外看的时候,他看见一个穿着黑色斗篷的老人在花园里散步。老人又高又瘦。他的脸是不健康的黄色。他的黑眼睛很冷。老人手上戴着厚厚的手套,口鼻上戴着口罩。他小心翼翼地在植物中行走,好像在野兽或毒蛇中行走。尽管他很仔细地看了看这些花,但他没有触摸或闻到任何花的气味。当老人拿着紫色的大花来到那株植物时,他停了下来。他摘下面具,大声喊道:“比阿特丽斯!来帮帮我!”我来了,爸爸。你想要什么?”屋里传来一个温暖的年轻人的声音。一个年轻女子走进花园。她浓密的黑发卷曲地披在肩上。她的脸颊是粉红色的,眼睛又大又黑。


She seemed full of life,health and energy as she walked among the plants.Giovanni thought she was as beautiful as the purple flowers in the marble vase.The old man said something to her.She nodded her head as she touched and smelled the flowers that her father had been so careful to avoid.Several weeks later,Giovanni went to visit Pietro Baglioni,a friend of his father's.Professor Baglioni taught medicine at the university.During the visit,Giovanni asked about Doctor Rappaccini."He is a great scientist,"Professor Baglioni replied."But he is also a dangerous man.""Why?"asked Giovanni.The older man shook his head slowly."Because Rappaccini cares more about science than he does about people.He has created many terrible poisons from the plants in his garden.He thinks he can cure sickness with these poisons.It is true that several times he has cured a very sick person that everyone thought would die.But Rappaccini's medicine has also killed many people.I think he would sacrifice any life,even his own,for one of his experiments."


当她在植物间漫步时,似乎充满了生机、健康和活力。乔瓦尼认为她和大理石花瓶里的紫色花朵一样美丽。老人对她说了些什么。她点了点头,抚摸着,闻到了父亲小心翼翼地避开的花香。几周后,乔瓦尼去拜访了他父亲的朋友皮埃特罗·巴格里奥尼,巴格里奥尼教授在这所大学教授医学。访问期间,乔瓦尼询问了拉帕奇尼医生的情况。”“他是一位伟大的科学家,”巴格里奥尼教授回答说但他也是个危险的人。“为什么?”乔瓦尼问道。老人慢慢摇了摇头。”因为拉帕奇尼更关心科学而不是人。他用花园里的植物制造了许多可怕的毒药。他认为用这些毒药能治好病。的确,他好几次治好了一个大家都以为会死的病人。但是Rappaccini的药也杀死了很多人。我想他会为了他的一个实验牺牲任何生命,甚至是自己的生命。”
