名著片段欣赏:选自《呼啸山庄》

I have just returned from a visit to my landlord - the solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with. This is certainly a beautiful country! In all England, I do not believe that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from the stir of society. A perfect misanthropist's heaven: and Mr. Heathcliff and I are such a suitable pair to divide the desolation between us. A capital fellow! He little imagined how my heart warmed towards him when I beheld his black eyes withdraw so suspiciously under their brows, as I rode up, and when his fingers sheltered themselves, with a jealous resolution, still further in his waistcoat, as I announced my name.

我刚刚拜访了我的房东--一个孤独的且将给我带来麻烦的邻居。这的确是非常漂亮的乡村!在英格兰,我认为找不到比这更远离社会喧嚣的地方了。这里是隐居者的完美天堂,而分享这里的荒芜,希斯克利夫先生和我是再好不过的一对了。一个绝好的家伙!当我站起来,迎着他那双眉下闪烁着怀疑的目光时,他低估了我内心的热忱。当我自报家门时,他没有伸出手来,而是深深的插进他的马甲里,非常警惕。
