Chapter 15 Further up and Further in第15章 更高更深路
"KNOW, O Warlike Kings," said Emeth, "and you, O ladies whose beauty illuminates the universe, that I am Emeth the seventh son of Harpha Tarkaan of the city of Tehishbaan, Westward beyond the desert. I came lately into Narnia with nine and twenty others under the command of Rishda Tarkaan Now when I first heard that we should march upon Narnia I rejoiced; for I had heard many things of your Land and desired greatly to meet you in battle. But when I found that we were to go in disguised as merchants (which is a shameful dress for a warrior and the son of a Tarkaan) and to work by lies and trickery, then my joy departed from me. And most of all when I found we must wait upon a Monkey, and when it began to be said that Tash and Aslan were one, then the world became dark in my eyes. For always since I was a boy I have served Tash and my great desire was to know more of him, if it might be, to look upon his face. But the name of Aslan was hateful to me.“尚武的国王们啊,”伊梅思说道,“美丽照耀宇宙的女士们啊,奉告各位,我是伊梅思,大沙漠外西边的蒂希什班城的泰坎哈泮的第七代后裔。我是同二十九个卡乐门士兵在泰坎利什达的指挥下最近进入纳尼亚的。却说我最初听到要开往纳尼亚时,我是欢欣鼓舞的,因为我听说过许多你们国土上的事情,很想同你们在战场上较量一番。但,当我发觉我们要化装成商人前往(对一个战士,一个‘泰坎’的儿子来说,穿上商人衣服就是个耻辱),凭撒谎和阴谋诡计搞工作,那种高兴的心情就离开我了。最气人的是,我发觉我们必须侍奉一头猿猴,开始说什么塔什和阿斯兰是二位一体时,世界在我的眼睛里就变成黑暗的了。因为,从我的儿童时期起,我总是信奉塔什神的,我的一大愿望就是对于塔什知道得更多,如果可能的话,当面瞧瞧塔什神。但对于阿斯兰的名字,我却觉得厌恶憎恨。
"And, as you have seen, we were called together outside the straw-roofed hovel, night after night, and the fire was kindled, and the Ape brought forth out of the hovel something upon four legs that I could not well see. And the people and the Beasts bowed down and did honour to it. But I thought, the Tarkaan is deceived by the Ape: for this thing that comes out of the stable is neither Tash nor any other god. But when I watched the Tarkaan's face, and marked every word that he said to the Monkey, then I changed my mind: for I saw that the Tarkaan did not believe in it himself. And then I understood that he did not believe in Tash at all: for if he had, how could he dare to mock him?“你们已经看见了,一夜又一夜的,我们都被召集到那茅草棚子外面,点起了篝火。无尾猿从茅草棚里牵出来一头四条腿的东西,我没法儿看清楚的东西。人和兽都向它鞠躬致敬。但我认为,泰坎被那猿猴骗了。因为这个从马厩里牵出来的东西,既不是塔什,也不是其他神明。但,当我仔细打量泰坎的脸,注意他跟猴子说的每一句话每一个字时,我的想法便改变了:因为我看了出来,泰坎自己也不相信自己说的话。于是我明白了:他压根儿不信塔什,因为,如果他信塔什,怎么会大胆地嘲弄塔什呢?
"When I understood this, a great rage fell upon me and I wondered that the true Tash did not strike down both the Monkey and the Tarkaan with fire from heaven. Nevertheless I hid my anger and held my tongue and waited to see how it would end. But last night, as some of you know, the Monkey brought not forth the yellow thing but said that all who desired to look upon Tashlan - for so they mixed the two words to pretend that they were all one - must pass one by one into the hovel. And I said to myself, Doubtless this is some other deception. But when the Cat had followed in and had come out again in a madness of terror, then I said to myself, Surely the true Tash, whom they called on without knowledge or belief, has now come among us, and will avenge himself. And though my heart was turned into water inside me because of the greatness and terror of Tash, yet my desire was stronger than my fear, and I put force upon my knees to stay them from trembling, and on my teeth that they should not chatter, and resolved to look upon the face of Tash though he should slay me. So I offered myself to go into the hovel; and the Tarkaan, though unwillingly, let me go.“我明白了这一点时,心中大为愤怒,我觉得奇怪,为什么真正的塔什不从天上用烈火打击猿猴和泰坎呢?然而,我隐藏着我的愤怒,缄口结舌,等待着这事情如何了结。然而,昨天夜里,正如你们之中有几位也知道的那样,那猴子没有把那头黄颜色的东西从马厩里牵出来,却说凡是想瞧瞧塔什兰的——他们故意把两个名字混合成一个名字,假装两者是合为一体的——必须挨个儿到马厩里去。于是我对自己说,毫无疑问,这是另一个骗局。然而,当猫儿进了马厩,又在一阵疯狂恐惧中重新窜出来时,我又跟我自己说道,现在,必定是真正的塔什神来到我们中间了,他们呼唤塔什神,却对塔什神无知无识或是毫无信仰,塔什神要为自己报仇雪恨了。虽然由于塔什神的伟大和恐怖,我的内心已经被慑服,但我的欲望比我的恐惧强烈,我使劲儿克制两膝的颤抖,克制牙齿格格作响,下定决心要瞧瞧塔什的脸,尽管塔什会把我杀了。所以我自动要求进茅草棚子去;而‘泰坎’呢,虽然不愿意,也只好让我进去了。
"As soon as I had gone in at the door, the first wonder was that I found myself in this great sunlight (as we all are now) though the inside of the hovel had looked dark from outside. But I had no time to marvel at this, for immediately I was forced to fight for my head against one of our own men. As soon as I saw him I understood that the Monkey and the Tarkaan had set him there to slay any who came in if he were not in their secrets: so that this man also was a liar and a mocker and no true servant of Tash. I had the better will to fight him; and having slain the villain, I cast him out behind me through the door.“我刚走进门,第一个奇迹就是我发觉自己置身于这伟大的阳光里(就像我们大家现在一样),虽然这茅草棚子从外边儿看来是漆黑一团的,但我没有工夫为此惊奇,因为我立刻被迫为保全自己的脑袋而跟我们的自己人搏斗。我刚看到他就明白了,原来猴子和‘泰坎’把他布置在那儿,是要把任何不参与其机密而闯进棚子来的人杀掉:所以他这个人也是个撒谎者和嘲弄者,并非塔什神的忠实仆人。我下决心要跟他搏斗;我把那混蛋杀了,把他从门口扔了出去。
"Then I looked about me and saw the sky and the wide lands, and smelled the sweetness. And I said, By the Gods, this is a pleasant place: it may be that I am come into the country of Tash. And I began to journey into the strange country and to seek him.“然后我向四周瞧瞧,我看到了天空和辽阔的大地,闻到了一片芳香。于是我说,诸神作证,这是个好地方:说不定我是进入了塔什的国土。于是我开始在这新奇的国土里漫游,寻找塔什神。
