伊丽莎白·毕肖普Elizabeth Bishop简介:
伊丽莎白·毕肖普(Elizabeth Bishop,1911-1979)美国20世纪最有影响力的女诗人之一。1911年生于美国马萨诸塞州的伍斯特。1934年毕业于瓦萨学院后,在纽约文学圈里的生活为其事业奠定了基础。后与大学同学路易斯·克兰在南方佛罗里达的基维斯特岛,同居了5年。她的一生很多时候都在旅行,游离了美国的文化生活之外。1950年定居巴西。最后返回马萨诸塞州,住在波士顿,任教于哈佛大学。1979年突然去世,享年68岁。毕肖普立足于美国诗歌的传统,更清晰地表达了一种个人化的修辞立场。她的诗富有想像力和音乐节奏,并借助语言的精确表达和形式的完美,把道德寓意和新思想结合起来,表达了坚持正义的信心和诗人的责任感。

At low tide like this how sheer the water is.
White, crumbling ribs of marl protrude and glare
and the boats are dry, the pilings dry as matches.
Absorbing, rather than being absorbed,
the water in the bight doesn't wet anything,
the color of the gas flame turned as low as possible.
One can smell it turning to gas; if one were Baudelaire
one could probably hear it turning to marimba music.
The little ocher dredge at work off the end of the dock
already plays the dry perfectly off-beat claves.
The birds are outsize. Pelicans crash
into this peculiar gas unnecessarily hard,
it seems to me, like pickaxes,
rarely coming up with anything to show for it,
and going off with humorous elbowings.
Black-and-white man-of-war birds soar
on impalpable drafts
and open their tails like scissors on the curves
or tense them like wishbones, till they tremble.
The frowsy sponge boats keep coming in
with the obliging air of retrievers,
bristling with jackstraw gaffs and hooks
and decorated with bobbles of sponges.
There is a fence of chicken wire along the dock
where, glinting like little plowshares,
the blue-gray shark tails are hung up to dry
for the Chinese-restaurant trade.
Some of the little white boats are still piled up
against each other, or lie on their sides, stove in,
and not yet salvaged, if they ever will be, from the last bad storm,
like torn-open, unanswered letters.
The bight is littered with old correspondences.
Click. Click. Goes the dredge,
and brings up a dripping jawful of marl.
All the untidy activity continues,
awful but cheerful.
