English to Chinese translation 英文到汉语中文翻译对照阅读 of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Chapter 36

1SO endeth this chronicle. It being strictly a history of a BOY, it must stop here; the story could not go much further without becoming the history of a MAN. When one writes a novel about grown people, he knows exactly where to stop—that is, with a marriage; but when he writes of juveniles, he must stop where he best can.

1故事至此结束。因为这确实是个儿童的故事,所以写到这里必须搁笔,再写下去就得涉及到成人时期。写成人的故事,作者很清楚写到结婚成家就算了事,但是写青少年则得见好 就收。

2 Most of the characters that perform in this book still live, and are prosperous and happy. Some day it may seem worth while to take up the story of the younger ones again and see what sort of men and women they turned out to be; therefore it will be wisest not to reveal any of that part of their lives at present.

2本书中的人物有许多仍然健在,过着富裕快乐的生活。有朝一日再来续写这个故事,看看原来书中的小孩子们长大后做什么,这也许是件值得做的事情。正因为如此,明智的做法 就是现在不要越俎代庖。
