英语背诵精选A tribute to the dog 犬的礼赞 MP3 中英对照

 


  The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter whom he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith.

   The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads. The one absolute, unselfish friend a man may have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.

   A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground when the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer. He will lick the sores and wounds that come in the encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince.

   When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth, an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard him against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes and death takes its master in its embrace and the body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there, by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness faithful and true even to death.

在这个世界上,一个人的好友可能与他做对、变成敌人;他用慈爱培养起来的儿女可能变得不忠不孝;那些我们最感亲切和亲密的人,那些我们用全部幸福与名誉痴信的人,都可能会弃忠诚而成 叛逆。一个人所拥有的金钱可能会失去,在最需要它的时候却插翅飞走;一个人的声誉也许会断送在考虑欠妥的一瞬间;那些惯会在我们成功时来屈膝奉承的人,很可能就是当失败的阴云笼罩在我们头上时投掷第一块阴毒之石的人。  在这个自私的世界上,一个人唯一毫不自私的朋友。唯一不抛弃他的朋友、唯一不忘恩负义的朋友,就是他的狗。不问主人是否 贫穷或富贵、健康或病弱,狗都会守在主人的身旁;只要能靠近主 人,即使地面冰冷坚硬、寒风凛冽、大雪纷飞,狗也会全然不顾地 躺在主人身边;哪怕主人无食喂养,狗仍会舔着主人的手和主人手上因抵御这个冷酷的世界所受的创伤。纵然主人是乞丐,狗也像守护王子一样地伴随他。当他所有的朋友都掉头离去,狗却义无反顾。当主人的财富消失。声誉扫地时,狗对主人的爱仍如天空运行不息的太阳一样,永恒不变。假如因命运的捉弄,主人变成了一个无家可归的流浪者,这只忠诚的犬只求陪伴主人,有难同当,对抗敌人,此外毫无奢求。当万物的结局来临,死神夺去了主人的生 命、尸体埋葬在寒冷的地下时,即使所有的亲朋好友都已各奔前 程,而这只高贵的犬却会独自守卫在墓旁,它仰首于两足之间,眼睛里虽然充满悲伤,却仍然机警地护卫着墓地,忠贞不渝,直到死亡。

《犬的礼赞》源于1870年发生在美国密苏里州的一起由犬引起法律官司。居住在沃伦斯堡的波特先生饲养着一只名叫“老鼓”的 猎犬,波特先生十分喜爱“老鼓”,但是一天晚上,“老鼓”跑到了波特先生的好友杭斯贝先生的后院中,被杭斯贝先生开枪打死了。失去“老鼓”的波特先生十分悲痛,一纸状文将邻居杭斯贝先生告到了法院。 这场官司一直打到了最高法院,在终审时,参议员维斯特先生代表波特在法庭上向法官和陪审团朗读了一篇动人的奇文《犬的礼赞》。     法官和陪审团都被这篇千古难寻的奇文所感动,许多人流下了热泪。最终波特胜诉,被告杭斯贝负责赔偿500美元结案。此案在当时非常引人关注,社会影响力极大,《犬的礼赞》更成为全世界 养犬爱好者所钟爱的诗篇,至今仍有强烈的感染力。后来,当地人 又将这篇千古奇文刻在了专为“老鼓”建立的纪念碑上。
