格列佛游记:火药

2017-08-20 16:47[英语话剧] 来源: 评论:
格列佛在巨人的领土——大人国。他担心自己的生命安全,想回到自己的国家英国,但是这首先得说服国王让他离开。

Gulliver narrator
Come here and listen to my tale – for I am Gulliver, and I have seen many strange things in my life, and many parts of the world that should not be seen. The land of Lilliput with tiny people, no bigger than my foot... And now this land, Brobdingnag, where I am but a mouse beside the giants who live here.

And today, I was to meet the king of Brobdingnag.

King
Welcome, Gulliver. Tell me, how do you like my kingdom?

Gulliver
Your Majesty, your people have been extremely kind to me. I dine on delicious food with the Queen, and live in a beautiful house made just for me. Next week I'll have lived here for one year.

King
Well, I see. But...?

Gulliver
But, your Majesty, this is not my home. I miss my own people, and wish to return there.

King
Ah yes. The Queen has told me about a place called... England? Tell me, do you have laws in England?

Gulliver
Yes we do. And we have policies too, and political parties... the debates between our parties are magnificent!

King
Political parties! But you're so small. Oh, I say!

Gulliver
Yes, we have the Whigs and the Tories.

King
And which are you - a Whig or a Tory?

Gulliver narrator
The more I talked about England, the more he just laughed. I needed to tell him something that would impress him – make him realise what a great nation we were. Then I thought of it.

Gulliver
There is one thing we have in England, that you don't have in Brobdingnag, Sir.

King
And what's that, little man?

Gulliver
Gunpowder.

King
Gunpowder?

Gulliver
Yes, for all your guns.

King
Explain.

Gulliver
England's armies are the envy of the world. And the secret of our power is gunpowder. You see, powder is rammed into a hollow iron tube, and then set alight, forcing the ball of metal, through the tube...

Gulliver narrator
The king sat in silence.

Gulliver
We can destroy whole ranks of an army at once, sink down ships, attack cities and tear up their houses. It's glorious. And you can have the secret. I will offer it to you, to enforce your rule.

King
I am amazed, Gulliver.

Gulliver
Yes?

King
I am amazed at how a little insect like you, can have such inhuman ideas. The blood and desolation you speak of so familiarly, it comes from an evil source. Speak of this gunpowder no more.

Gulliver
No, your Majesty.

Gulliver narrator
I seem to have offended him, for the king nor queen ever invited me back again. Nobody liked me at court. Only my dear friend Glumdalclitch still cared for me.

Gulliver
I need to get home.

Glumdalclitch
But I love it here Gulliver. I've learned to write, to sing, to sew... and they pay me well. Soon, I'll have saved enough to buy a new farm for Mum and Dad. I don't want to go home, not yet.

Gulliver
But I need to. Walk with me.

Gulliver narrator
Glumdalclitch took me in my travelling box and we set off. Soon the court was far behind us and we walked through the strange land of Brobdingnag. It was vast - at least 6,000 miles across. There was no way I could escape alone. And the island was surrounded by rough seas - so much so, that no other nations ever came to trade here. I was stuck.

Gulliver
What's that? Wait... where... Glumdalclitch!!!!

Glumdalclitch
Gulliver!!!

Gulliver narrator
I was being carried high into the sky by... a bird! I looked out from my case and yes – a huge eagle was carrying my travelling box in its claws. We went higher and higher – and Brobdingnag grew smaller. And then we were over the sea – I saw the rough waves breaking beneath – before, with a great cry – he dropped my box – right down into the waters. I floated, and floated for hours until I fell asleep on the waters...

Sailor
Hello, anyone there?

Gulliver narrator
English voices? I had been rescued.

Gulliver
It's me, Gulliver! Gosh you're... small!

Sailor
What? And why are you shouting?

Gulliver
Sorry. It's just... you wouldn't believe me.

Gulliver narrator
The journey home took a month, and soon I was nearing my own front door. My dear wife ran out to embrace me.

Gulliver's wife
My... my Gulliver?!

Gulliver
My... dear.

Gulliver narrator
And so my second voyage was at an end. In truth, it took me some time to adjust to life with my own people. I had seen such strange things. Life was not the same.

Gulliver's wife
Promise me you will never go to sea again.

Gulliver narrator
I wish I could. But as you may guess, this was not my unfortunate destiny. On my next voyage, my life changed forever, and I saw the terrible things that man had created.
