老好人瑞普一觉睡了二十年,醒来以后是一幅什么景象呢?

《瑞普·凡·温克尔》的主人公瑞普是一个心地善良、和蔼可亲的人,他乐于帮助别人,村上的孩子、女人都喜欢他,但在自己家里他却十分懒惰。他在家里十分害怕妻子,为了逃避妻子的责骂,瑞普有一天带着猎狗躲进了森林。在那里,瑞普喝了一种奇妙的饮料,倒头便睡,一觉就是20年。当他醒来回到家里时,发现家乡的一切都变了样,他记忆中的那个时代早已变成了历史。作者通过瑞普那看似荒唐的遭遇反映了独立革命前后北美大陆上乡村的社会状况。同时也巧妙地暗示了这场革命成功以后,广大民众并没有在生活上得到丝毫改善,从而对现实进行了讽刺。

"Rip Van Winkle" is set in the years before and after the American Revolutionary War. Rip Van Winkle is a henpecked husband who loathes "profitable labor", and a meek, easygoing, ne'er-do-well resident of the village. One autumn day, to escape his wife's nagging, Van Winkle wanders into the mountains with his dog. After drinking a certain kind of drink, he falls into asleep and wakes up 20 years later.After that,he returns to the villege where he comes from,and finds everything changed.People talk about revolution and election,and he has no idea of what that means.

华盛顿·欧文(1783-1859)是19世纪美国最著名的短篇小说作家、随笔作家、传记作家以及外交官,号称“美国文学之父”。从欧文少年时代起就喜爱阅读英国作家司各特、拜伦和彭斯等人的作品。欧文的第一部重要作品是《纽约外史》。 1819年,欧文的《见闻札记》出版,引起欧洲和美国文学界的重视,这部作品奠定了欧文在美国文学史上的地位,其中包含他最著名的两篇小说《瑞普·凡·温克尔》和《睡谷传奇》。

Washington Irving ( 1783–1859) was an American short story writer, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories “Rip Van Winkle” (1819) and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” (1820), both of which appear in his collection, The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.

Certain it is, that he was a great favorite among all the good wives of the village, who, as usual with the amiable sex, took his part in all family squabbles, and never failed, whenever they talked those matters over in their evening gossipings, to lay all the blame on Dame Van Winkle. The children of the village, too, would shout with joy whenever he approached. He assisted at their sports, made their playthings, taught them to fly kites and shoot marbles, and told them long stories of ghosts, witches, and Indians. Whenever he went dodging about the village, he was surrounded by a troop of them hanging on his skirts, clambering on his back, and playing a thousand tricks on him with impunity; and not a dog would bark at him throughout the neighborhood.
