以下の英文の意味を教えてください。ヨロシクお願いします。 At the age of fifty, and with a dozen or so books published, it does not see tautologous to say that I write because I am a writer. To stop writing, not to write, is now unthinkable―or perhaps it is the secret fear to assuage which one goes on writing. My sense of my own identity is so intimately connected with my writing that if I ceased to write I should become, in Orwellian language, an unperson to myself.

現在50歳、そして今まで12冊以上の本を出版した経験を持つ者が、自分は物書きだから物を書くと言っても類語反復にはならないだろう。書く事を辞める、書かない生活、それは今となっては考えられない。もしくは、心の何処かで書かない事に満足してしまう恐怖心が、自分を突き動かしているのかもしれない。私の一個人としての自覚は物を書く事に非常に強い繋がりを持っている。もし私が書く事を辞めるとしたら、オーウェリアン風に言えば、自分の人間性を失う事になるだろう。 “see tautologous” は “seem tautologous” ですね。

 歳は五十、出した本は12冊ばかり、私は物書きだから、物を書くというのは(当たり前でべつに)重複とは見えない。  書くのを辞め、書かないということは、今では考えられない ーー というか書き続けるということは、(私は)書くことを抑えるのを密かに恐れているのかもしれない。  私自身の有り様は、物を書くことと切っても切り離せない程絡まり合っているので、ジョージオーウェルの言葉を借りれば、私が書くことを辞めたら、私は、私にとって「不人間」というか、人間ではなくなるのだ。



  • 以下の英文について教えてください。

    Contrary to popular belief, the past was not more eventful than the present. If seems so it is because when you look backward things that happened years apart are telescoped together, and because very few of your memories come to you genuinely virgin. It is largely because of the books, films and reminiscences that have come between that the war of 1914-18 is now supposed to have had some tremendous, epic quality that the present one lacks. 上記の英文の中の以下の部分についてなのですが、 It is largely because of the books, films and reminiscences that have come between that the war of 1914-18 is now supposed to have had some tremendous, epic quality that the present one lacks. 訳は、 『第一次世界大戦が、現在には見られない何かものすごい叙事詩的な性質をもっていたと思われているのは、おおかた大戦後に続いて出された書物や映画や回顧録などのせいだ。』 になっていたのですが、 大戦後に続いて出された、の箇所はhave come betweenのところになるのでしょうか? come betweenを調べると"間に入る"と出てくるのですが、 なぜ、大戦後に続いて出された、となるのでしょうか? お手数ですが教えて下さい。 よろしくお願いいたします。 ----My Country Right or Left: George Orwell

    アメリカのネットショップで小物を購入しました。発送はいつですか?インボイスは完成しましたか?と質問していました。返事がきたんですがちょっと意味がわかりません。 すみませんが意味を教えてくれませんか?お願いします。 I am sorry for not getting back to you any earlier but your order has not been packed yet. My regular packer is not here, he will be in tomorrow so I am hoping to have your order ready by the end of this week. I will put the sticker on with the country of origin on and on the invoice as well. Is there any other documents that should be presented to the customs or is it just the invoice with the country of origin?

    Please find your usual error-correction exercise attached. Following on from our conversation last lesson about mobile phone addiction, I discovered that China has introduced special walking lanes for people who want to walk and text!: https://www.theguardian.com/world/shortcuts/2014/sep/15/china-mobile-phone-lane-distracted-walking-pedestrians I looked but I couldn't find the news article that I read ages ago about the assistants paid to escort phone-addicts around their city on foot. - A shame as I wanted to show you! Homework This week, I'd like you to watch a video from here - https://www.ted.com/talks - and summarise it in 3 to 5 minutes. You'll be able to find subtitles and there are talks on all manner of subjects so I'm sure you'll find one that interests you - perhaps you'd like to look for music- or animal-related talks (it's totally your choice!). The most important aspect of your summary is that it's not completely memorised; it's better for it to sound natural and include mistakes than contain no mistakes but sound robot-like! I encourage you not to write a script but to write down a few key points in case you need to refer to them. The point of this homework is to encourage fluency, not accuracy. So please don't worry about it being perfect! Let me know if you have any questions.

    How do you stand the hardest part of running marathon? Many say that life is like marathon. Do you think that you can deal with the crisis in your life thanks to marathon? By the way corresponding with penpals, the reason I feel like I have difficulty writing is not because of my English. It is because the moment I cannot come up with anything I have to reply. Honestly speaking I am not a talkative person, but I try to talk more when writing. Nice and slow conversations are hard to come by, and the form of letter writing does put in a lot into thinking about what the other person has to say and how to respond. この二つが何となくはわかるのですが、自信がありません。教えていただけると助かります。

    To-day, as I was reading in the garden , a waft of summer perfume--some hidden link of association in what I read--I know not what it may have been--took me back to school-boy holidays; I recovered with strange intensity that lightsome mood of long release from tasks, of going away to the seaside, which is one of childhood's blessings. この英文について質問があります。 I know not what it may have beenを訳すとどうなるのでしょうか? 私はわからない、what以下のことを、という感じになるかと思うのですが、 it may have beenがわかりません。(itは何を指していますか?) which is one of childhood's blessingsのwhichの先行詞は何になりますか? お手数をおかけしますがよろしくお願いします。 ----------------The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft <Summer>: George Gissing

    アメリカのネットショップで小物を購入しました。発送のことでメールが来たんですがいまいちわかりません。すみませんが意味を教えて下さい。お願いします。 I am so sorry I was out of the office so I was not able to get back to you. Normally you can expect responses right away so I am sorry about this. We had one AAA that was in production from the popularity of it so it was received yesterday I also asked them to send you some additional purse hooks as a gift for being late. They are a nice gift for your customers I hope, but I wanted to give it to you as a gesture and apology for my late response. I also don’t have the final size of the box since they had to wait to add another bag to the order they have not packaged it, I will let you know once the office is back today and also the tracking. It should get there in about 2 days. Also the address you gave is a remote area for fedex do you have another address, normally it is an additional $25 but I asked them to waive the out of remote fee this time so we will pay for it. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns and I will update you later today.
