有些景象令他不悦,譬如看到母亲,一位身着绿衣的美丽贵妇,走到室外去喂孔雀,身后跟着侍女特薇琪;有些景象令他欣喜,譬如鸟儿和树林;还有些景象令他迷恋死亡,譬如夜空和归巢的秃鼻鸦;凡此种种,都像旋转楼梯一样进入他的脑海,那里面有无穷无尽的空间。所有这些景象,还有花园里的各类响动,如击捶声和劈柴声,都开启了激情与心绪的放纵和混乱,这一点,每一传记作者都会有所察觉。但是接下去,奥兰多慢慢定下神来,坐在桌旁,心不在焉地拿出笔记本和旧鹅毛笔,蘸了墨水写起来,人们日复一日在同一时间做同一件事时都会是这副样子。笔记本上标了埃瑟尔伯特:五幕悲剧”。

上帝啊,”她想,平躺在凉篷下,已恢复常态,这当然不失为一种快活、懒散的生活方式,”她想,踢了踢腿。可是,裙子拖到脚后跟,也够讨厌的。不过这料子(碎花棱纹丝)着实漂亮。我还从未看到过自己的肌肤(她把手放在膝盖上)像现在这样美丽。不过,我能穿着这样的衣裳跳下水去游泳吗?当然不行!因此,我不得不信任水手的保护。对此我会不会反对呢?会不会?”她疑惑起来,在一连串顺畅无阻的论据中第一次遇到障碍。

她坐在走廊尽头,坐在伊丽莎白女王坐过的硬木扶手椅上,几只狗伏卧在她的四周。走廊长长的,向前伸展,直到光线几乎消失的那一点。它犹如一条隧道,深深钻入以往的岁月。她的视线循着它向前窥视,可以看到人们有说有笑,那些她所认识的大人物,德莱顿、斯威夫特和蒲伯,口若悬河的政治家,坐在窗台上调情的恋人。人们围长桌而坐,狂啖豪饮,燃烧的木头冒出袅袅青烟,在他们的头上缭绕,他们咳嗽,还打喷嚏。再远处,她看到一组组的人排成方阵,准备跳方阵舞。一阵悠远、飘忽而庄严的音乐传来。风琴发出的低吟四处回荡。一只棺材抬进了小教堂。从里面走出来的是婚礼的队伍。头戴盔甲的武士奔赴战场。他们把从弗劳顿(弗劳顿,英格兰地名。1513年苏格兰国王詹姆斯四世与英格兰国王亨利八世在此大战,以苏格兰人战败告终)和普瓦捷(普瓦捷,法国地名。 1356年的昔瓦捷战役是英法百年战争中英国战胜法国的著名战役),带回的旗帜插在墙上。长长的走廊渐渐有了这些东西,而再往前看,她觉得在走廊的尽头,在伊丽莎白时代和都铎王朝那些人之前,依稀可以辨认出一个更老、更远、更暗的人影,一个穿蒙头斗篷、面色严峻的隐修土,双手紧握一本书,口中喁喁低语——

Never was there such a scene of protestation and demonstration as then took place since the world began. When it was over and they were seated again she asked him, what was this talk of a South-west gale? Where was he bound for?

The tale, we say, is tedious, for one cupboard is much like another, and one molehill not much different from a million. Some pleasant journeys it cost him; and some fine adventures. As, for instance, when he set a whole city of blind women near Bruges to stitch hangings for a silver canopied bed; and the story of his adventure with a Moor in Venice of whom he bought (but only at the sword’s point) his lacquered cabinet, might, in other hands, prove worth the telling. Nor did the work lack variety; for here would come, drawn by teams from Sussex, great trees, to be sawn across and laid along the gallery for flooring; and then a chest from Persia, stuffed with wool and sawdust. from which, at last, he would take a single plate, or one topaz ring.
