布雷特·哈特是美国乡土文学的代表,他通过对真实生活的观察再现了普通人的普通生活,大大助长了现实主义文学的阵势.

本集包含了布雷特·哈特的四本短篇小说。《密格尔丝》讲述主人公心甘情愿地住在荒山野岭,独自一人长年累月地侍候现已瘫痪的恩人。《汤普森先生家的浪子》讲述了父亲找回了自己放荡不羁的儿子却发现他是个冒牌货的故事。《鲁莽的埃尔斯贝丝》讲述了两个身份悬殊的人之间的爱情故事。《浆果鹃谷的情事》则感叹爱情是雾里看花,婚姻则是爱情的坟墓。

布勒特·哈特(1836—1902),小说家,美国西部文学的代表作家。以描写加利福尼亚州的矿工、赌徒、娼妓而负盛名。其中最著名的是《咆哮营的幸运儿》(1870)。后又与马克·吐温合作创作名剧《啊罪恶》(1877)。后期从政。曾先后任驻德国克雷菲尔德和英国格拉斯哥两地领事。

Francis Bret Harte (August 25, 1836– May 5, 1902) was an American author and poet, best remembered for his short fiction featuring miners, gamblers, and other romantic figures of the California Gold Rush. In a career spanning more than four decades, he wrote poetry, fiction, plays, lectures, book reviews, editorials, and magazine sketches in addition to fiction. As he moved from California to the eastern U.S. to Europe, he incorporated new subjects and characters into his stories, but his Gold Rush tales have been most often reprinted, adapted, and admired.

包括车夫在内,我们一行共八个人。 笨重的车子在越发崎岖的道路上剧烈颠簸着,将法官最后诗意的引用一扫而空。之后走的六英里路,我们都没有说话。 法官旁边坐着的高个子男人在睡觉,他的胳膊套在晃动的皮带里,脑袋枕在上面——完全成了一个萎靡不振的家伙,一副无助的样子。他就像是上吊自杀了,等到别人割断绳子把他救下来时却为时已晚。 后座的那位法国太太也在睡觉,但从她拿手帕的方式上可以看出她仍然保持着一种半清醒的、得体的姿态。

We were eight, including the driver. We had not spoken during the passage of the last six miles, since the jolting of the heavy vehicle over the roughening road had spoiled the Judge’s last poetical quotation. The tall man beside the Judge was asleep, his arm passed through the swaying strap and his head resting upon it—altogether a limp, helpless-looking object, as if he had hanged himself and been cut down too late. The French lady on the back seat was asleep, too, yet in a half-conscious propriety of attitude, shown even in the disposition of the handkerchief which she held to her forehead and which partially veiled her face.
