权力的游戏:第412期:第二十四章 艾德(08)

发表时间:2017-12-06内容来源:VOA英语学习网

“Drink and stay quiet, the king is talking. I swear to you, I was never so alive as when I was winning this throne, or so dead as now that I've won it. And Cersei...I have Jon Arryn to thank for her. I had no wish to marry after Lyanna was taken from me, but Jon said the realm needed an heir. Cersei Lannister would be a good match, he told me, she would bind Lord Tywin to me should Viserys Targaryen ever try to win back his father's throne.” The king shook his head. “I loved that old man, I swear it, but now I think he was a bigger fool than Moon Boy. Oh, Cersei is lovely to look at, truly, but cold...the way she guards her cunt, you'd think she had all the gold of Casterly Rock between her legs. Here, give me that beer if you won't drink it.” He took the horn, upended it, belched, wiped his mouth.“I am sorry for your girl, Ned. Truly. About the wolf, I mean. My son was lying, I'd stake my soul on it. My son...you love your children, don't you?”

"现在国王在说话,你闭上嘴乖乖喝酒。我跟你发誓,我这辈子再没比在战场厮杀、赢得王位那时候更快活,也不会比现在得了王位更死气沉沉。至于瑟曦…这全都要感谢琼恩·艾林。本来在失去莱安娜之后,我根本不打算结婚,但琼恩说王国需要继承人。他告诉我瑟曦·兰尼斯特是个好对象,因为若是韦赛里斯·坦格利安想夺回王位,和她结婚可以确保泰温公爵支持我的事业。"国王摇摇头。"我敢对天发誓我很敬爱那老头子,可我现在却觉得他比月童还笨。噢,瑟曦是很标致,这没错,但冷冰冰的……瞧她那副守身如玉的德行,好像两脚间藏了凯岩城所有黄金似的。呵,你如果不喝,把酒给我。"他接过角杯,一饮而尽,打了声响嗝,然后抹抹嘴。"奈德,你女儿的事我很抱歉,我说真的。就是狼的那件事。我儿子在撒谎,我敢拿我的灵魂打赌。我儿子…你很爱你的孩子,对吧?"

“With all my heart,” Ned said.

"我全心全意地爱他们。"奈德说。

“Let me tell you a secret, Ned. More than once, I have dreamed of giving up the crown. Take ship for the Free Cities with my horse and my hammer, spend my time warring and whoring, that's what I was made for. The sellsword king, how the singers would love me. You know what stops me? The thought of Joffrey on the throne, with Cersei standing behind him whispering in his ear. My son. How could I have made a son like that, Ned?”

"奈德,让我偷偷告诉你。我不止一次梦想放弃王位,带着我的骏马和战锤,坐船到自由贸易城邦去,整天打仗历险、歌舞青楼,那才是我该过的生活。做个佣兵国王,到时候吟游诗人不爱死我才怪。你知道我为什么没有真那样干吗?就因为我想到乔佛里坐上王位,瑟曦在旁边叽叽喳喳。那是我儿子,奈德,我怎么会养出这种儿子?"

背景介绍:

《权力的游戏》是一部中世纪史诗奇幻题材的电视连续剧。该剧以美国作家乔治·R·R·马丁的奇幻巨作《冰与火之歌》七部曲为基础改编创作,由大卫·贝尼奥夫和丹尼尔·威斯编剧、HBO电视网推出。乔治·雷蒙德·理查德·马丁是欧美奇幻小说大师。马丁的作品主要以人物为关注点,描写细腻丰富,突破了幻想文学界固有的创作模式,多次引领阅读潮流。由于马丁的辉煌成就,他被誉为美国的托尔金和新世纪的海明威。从1989年开始,马丁淡出文学界,转而投身演艺界发展,1996年他才重返文坛而开始奇幻文学的创作,处女作便是《权力的游戏》,即为《冰与火之歌》的首部曲。《权力的游戏》甫出便拿下了British Fantasy Society、 世界奇幻奖和星云奖年度最佳幻想作品提名,在非官方的不记名奇幻作品投票中,《冰与火之歌》俨然已经可以和《魔戒》平起平坐,作者网站的访问量也是和斯蒂芬·金、J.K.罗琳等不相上下,其受欢迎的程度可见一斑。乔治马丁被时代杂志评选为2011年影响世界的一百人之一。
