    John Galsworthyという作家の『THE CHOICE』という物語を読んでいるのですが、 訳の添削とよくわからない個所を教えていただきたいです。 (英文は"coming close together" というタイトルの質問から続いています) *To sweep a crossing was not a profession that he himself would have chosen before all others, still it was "better than the 'house---and you were your own master." 交差点を掃除することはすべての他の仕事に先じて選んでいたであろう職業ではありませんでした。それでもそれは「救貧院よりもよかったのです。つまりあなたは自分自身の主人でいられたのです。」 (*'house・・・・救貧院、poorhouse 本の注釈より) *The climate in those days not being the most suitable for a business which necessitated constant exposure to all elements but that of fire, his ailments were proportionally active; (1) この英文の最初の主語はThe climate だと思うのですが、動詞は何になるのでしょうか?    not beingの文法的な意味がわかりません。 (2) また、but that of fireの個所について      butは「除いて」ですか?    fireは「火事」?    thatはa business ですか?

    John Galsworthyという作家の『THE CHOICE』という物語を読んでいるのですが、 訳の添削と質問の個所の回答をお願い致します。 *He was so entirely fixed and certain that he was "going in the river" before he went "in the 'house," that one hesitated to suggest that the time was at hand when he should cease to expose himself all day and every day. He had evidently pondered long and with a certain deep philosophy on this particular subject, and fortified himself by hearsay. ( 'house=poorhouse. 「救貧院」:本の注釈より) (1) この英文はso~that構文ですか?         (so) entirely fixed and certain ~(that) one hesitated to suggest ~ (2) the riverという単語はこの物語で初めて出てきたのですが、     he was "going in the river"というのは、彼が川の中に入ることになっているという    未来を表しているのでしょうか?(意味が?ですが・・・) (3) fortified himself by hearsay     うわさによって精神を強化する、ですか?     どういう意味になるでしょうか? <訳> 彼は救貧院に行く前に川に入ることをとても完全に固執して確信していたので、人は彼が毎日一日中自分自身をさらけることをしなくなるべきだという時が近い将来であるということを提案するのを躊躇していました。彼は明らかに長い間、なんらかの深い哲学と共にこの特別な主題を熟考し、うわさによって精神を強化しました。 よろしくお願い致します。 前文です。 but the one remarkable feature of his perpetual illness was that he was always "better" than he had been. We could not at times help thinking that this continual crescendo of good health should have gradually raised him to a pinnacle of paramount robustness; and it was with a certain disappointment, in the face of his assurances, that we watched him getting, on the contrary, slowly stiffer and feebler, and noted the sure increase of the egg-like deposits, which he would proudly have us remark, about his wrists and fingers.

    He would often think out loud while I was there . Of course, he could have been talking to a bed or a chair just as easily. But it was now a habit was slower than his. But that served to make his own ideas come faster and brighter. This was my part in our relationship. When I arrived at Baker Street, I found him sitting in his armchair. His face deep in thought . It was clear that he was considering some difficult problem. He waved his hand for me to sit down. It was nearly a half hour before he finally looked up. Then he quickly turned to me and smiled. He welcomed me back to what was once my home. he could have been talking to a bed or a chair just as easily.

    On the day of his funeral there was a protest 窶朶pring 3 days earlier" in Belgrade were about 2000 people sang and wag coloured ballons. I know that he was responsible for numerous of deaths, economic crisis, making all of us looking like savages , but i think that noone deserves that on the day of the funeral. Maybe it's the influence of Orthodox christianity on me, but i think that everyone should be, if not sad, then at least not happy when someone dies. It is custom that living should show some respect to the deadman. これはセルビア人からのメールなんですけどミロシェビッチ元大統領の葬儀についてかいてあります。 (1)On the day of his funeral there was a protest 窶朶pring 3 days earlier" in Belgrade were    about 2000 people sang and wag coloured     ballons.の文章で見ての通り文字化けしているんで すが訳として”彼の葬儀の当日に抗議があった。” で次が全くわかりません(>_<) (2)i think that noone deserves that on the day of  the funeral. 葬儀の時は誰であれ悲しいときなので責められないとう かんじでしょうか?

    I know it only fed Phillip's delusions that he was somehow above law . Phillip believed that all the coincidences surrounding him from his kidnapping of me and getting away with it to present-day things like his parole officer' inability to hold him for anything were not just mere coincidence , but the work of the angels . 上の文は、Phillipが仮出所役人に逮捕されたが釈放された。私は、Phillipに誘拐され長年一緒に暮らしている。そんな本の中の一説です。 上の文の訳をお願いします。文の途中なので、わかりづらいかもしれませんが、よろしくおねがいします。

    John Galsworthyという作家の『THE CHOICE』という物語の英文を訳しました。 添削と、わからない個所を教えてください。 It had declined him for years, but, even before a long illness ousted him in favour of younger men, he had felt very severely the palpable difference in things. それは年来彼を傾けました。しかし長い病気のせいで、彼がより若い男性(後輩)に(仕事を?)追い出される前にすら、彼は物ごとの明白な違いを大変ひどく感じていました。 冒頭のItが何を指しているのかわかりません。 内容からa long illness のような気がするのですが、 It had declined him for years, but, even before a long illness ousted him と Itの後にa long illnessが出てくるので、わからない感じです。 前述の英文は But he was a great sufferer from a variety of ailments. He had gout, and some trouble in his side, and feet that were like barometers in their susceptibility to weather. Of all these matters he would speak to us in a very impersonal and uncomplaining way, diagnosing himself, as it were, for the benefit of his listeners. He was, it seems, alone in the world, not having of course at that time anything to look forward to in the way of a pension, nor, one fancies, very much to look back on except the death of his near relatives and the decline of the plumbing trade. となっています。 よろしくお願い致します。
