  The English Character

  The English seem as silent as the Japanese, yet vainer than the inhabitants of Siam. Upon my arrival I attributed that reserve to modesty, which, I now find, has its origin in pride. Condescend to address them first, and you are sure of their acquaintance; stoop to flattery, and you conciliate their friendship and esteem. They bear hunger, cold, fatigue, and all the miseries of life without shrinking, danger only

  calls forth their fortitude; they even exult in calamity, but contemp is what they cannot bear. An Englishman fears contempt more than death; he often flies to death as a refuge from its pressure, and dies when he fancies the world has creased to esteem him.

  by Oliver Goldsmith

  Oliver Goldsmith奥利弗·哥德史密斯( 1730 - 1774),英国著名剧作家。他出生于一个爱尔兰家庭,毕业于都柏林圣三一学院(Trinity College)后在爱丁堡就读医科。1756年,哥德史密斯定居伦敦,开始其创作事业。   哥德史密斯的写作格风格均是以嘻笑怒骂的形式讽刺时弊。他最著名的两出喜剧是《善性之人》(The Good-Natuser Man, 1768)及 《屈身求爱》(She Stoops to Conquer, 1773),他的戏剧以莎士比亚闹剧式的传统结构,企图重建他所谓的「畅笑」喜剧("laughing" comedy),致力于打破当时英国舞台盛行的感伤主义,以提高公众的品味。
