英汉对照读美文,感悟语言的艺术关注沈复,何人也?清朝书生,《浮生六记》之作者也。《浮生六记》,何书也?乃其自传体散文集也。

书名“浮生”二字出自李白诗《春夜宴从弟桃李园序》中“夫天地者,万物之逆旅也;光阴者,百代之过客也。而浮生若梦,为欢几何?”。

关于沈复的生平记载,寥寥无几。据其所著《浮生六记》,他出身于官僚家庭,志不在朝野,甘愿和自幼相爱,青梅竹马的妻子陈芸过着布衣蔬食的生活。

《浮生六记》记的是这对夫妻平凡的家居生活,两人苦中作乐,琴瑟和鸣;记的是他们的人生坎坷,困顿离合,人情世故;记的是他们去往各地游玩的所见所闻。

该书文字清新坦然,毫无华丽辞藻堆砌、煞费苦心雕琢之意。

在书中,作者以深情直率的笔调叙写夫妻闺房之乐,写出了伉俪情深的真情,也表露了夫妻两人不受封建礼教束缚的洒脱潇然。

虽然该书篇幅只有四卷之长,但它的文学价值极高,向来为文学爱好者和研究者所重视,影响广泛。

双语美文:沈复--浮生若浅梦,但惜夏日长。

林语堂因“素好《浮生六记》,发愿译成英文,使世人略知中国一对夫妇之恬淡可爱生活”,大约于1936年,出版了《浮生六记》的英译版,Six Chapters of A Floating Life。

今天,小编整理了一些书中的经典语录,让我们一同来品品沈复夫妻二人的乐居生活吧。


世事茫茫,光阴有限,算来何必奔忙?人生碌碌,竞短论长,却不道荣枯有数,得失难量。
