另外,bbc还推荐了几本英文原版好书,想要提高英语水平的你不可错过哦~
wuthering heights
《呼啸山庄》,1847年
作者:emily bront 艾米莉·勃朗特
wuthering heights is “powered by more psychological energy than any book ever written”. readers admire wuthering heights because of “its layered narrative structure, because it is a work of incredible imagination, and because it is far more than a love story. the story shows “the eternal rocks beneath” our fleeting desires.
《呼啸山庄》“蕴含巨大的心理能量,没有其它书籍能够与之匹敌。”读者推崇《呼啸山庄》是因为其“层层叠叠的叙述结构”和丰富惊人的想象力,更因为《呼啸山庄》超越了爱情故事本身,展现了我们转瞬即逝的欲望之下“永恒的震撼”。
time travel
《时光旅行》
作者:james

gleick 詹姆斯·格莱克
science writer gleick takes a panoramic approach to the fourth dimension, a subject that fascinated the fin de siècle scientific world. he begins with hg wells drafting his landmark 1895 book the time machine. he includes edith nesbit, a wells contemporary, who invented a time-travel subgenre in her 1906 novel the story of the amulet.
科学作家格莱克对第四维空间进行了全景式的描绘。在19世纪末的科学世界,四维空间是一个热门话题。故事始于1895年hg·威尔斯起草里程碑式巨著《时间机器》,结束于1906年威尔士当代作家伊迪斯·内斯比特在小说《护身符的故事》中创造出时光旅行的亚主题。
to the lighthouse
《到灯塔去》,1927年
作者:virginia woolf 弗吉尼亚·伍尔芙
subtle, beautiful, staggeringly intelligent and flat-out original. a masterpiece of modernism, its stream-of-consciousness, richness of language and perceptions has continued to reveal itself.
细腻美妙、智慧惊人,极其新颖独到。现代派的大师之作,运用意识流写法,其语言丰富、观察敏锐,不言自明。
vanity fair
《名利场》,1848年
作者:william makepeace thackeray 威廉·梅克皮斯·萨克雷
this novel features probably the greatest anti-heroine in english literature, becky sharp, and a plot that revolves around class, social climbing and a financial crisis that will seem eerily familiar to modern readers. vanity fair has it all. it both speaks of its time, and speaks of all times.
这部小说的主角或许是英国文学史上最知名的非正统派女主角——贝奇·夏普,小说的情节围绕阶级、跻身上流社会以及引发现代读者奇异的熟悉感的金融危机。《名利场》这些要素全都具备, 讲述那个年代,也讲述着所有年代。
great expectations
《远大前程》,1861年
作者:charles dickens 查尔斯·狄更斯
great expectations might be the quintessential british novel. to re-read dickens’ classic as an adult is to discover its wit and brio(文笔生动), its influence, and its truth. it has all the elements of classic dickens – endearing, flawed characters; a plot that skewers(串住、刺穿) the politics of the time; subplots that skewer morality and culture; a love story; and a wonderful storyline.
《远大前程》或许是最地道的英国小说。成年读者重温狄更斯经典,就会发现其智慧与精彩、影响与真理。《远大前程》有狄更斯经典的所有元素,讨人欢喜却不完美的角色、主要故事情节能牵住时局、副线情节串起道德与文化,是部情节精彩的爱情故事作品。
