内容简介

  罗伯特·路易斯·史蒂文森是英国的一位全才作家。他从小体弱多病,虽在25岁获得律师资格,却从事了写作。《金银岛》让他声名大噪。《化身博士》则被认为是心理小说的先驱、现代侦探小说的鼻祖,其主人公善与恶、文明与原欲、本我与超我相悖离的心理分裂状态一下子就征服了读者。小说出版6个月内即在英国售出了4万本,从女王到平民都在读,在美国更生出了25万本盗版。其影响如此巨大,已经成了英语的一部分,“Jekyll and Hyde”指“双重人格的人”。史蒂文森曾周游欧美,在法国邂逅长他10岁的妻子,这些经历为其作品提供了想象的空间。一次与朋友在家中聚会时,他意外与世长辞,时年44岁。
  伦敦的杰基尔医生秘密地研发出一种能将人内心的阴影与外在的人格面具分离出来的药水。他能随心所欲地变成另一个肉身——矮小丑陋、寻欢作乐的海德先生。海德在外干尽坏事,回家再服一剂药水,又变回受人尊敬的杰基尔博士。内心的欲望一旦释放,就如同酒精一样,叫人欲罢不能,这几乎控制了杰基尔整个人。海德在街上肆无忌惮地杀人,遭到通缉。由于缺少主要原料,变身用的药水很快就要用光,杰基尔将永远成为海德。罪行即将暴露的恐惧撕扯着杰基尔的内心,在绝望中他结束了自己的生命,但警方在他家里找到的却是海德的尸体。只有杰基尔手写的忏悔书才揭示了他真实的身份。
  《床头灯英语·3000词读物(纯英文):化身博士》的缘起是史蒂文森做的一个噩梦,在梦中他变身为另一个可怕的男人,在暗巷为非作歹。他在3天内把梦中的这段经历写了下来,却被妻子评为“低级小说”。于是他便把整份稿子烧毁,花了6天时间把作品重新创作出来。

精彩书摘

  《床头灯英语·3000词读物(纯英文):化身博士》:
  \"Did this... this man try to fight with you?\" asked Mr. Utterson.
  \"No,\" answered Richard. \"He did not seem to care at all. He did not resist me as I took him back to the child. By this time, a group of people had gathered around her, because they had heard her screams. They were the child's family, who lived two houses down from the corner. Luckily, a doctor soon joined the group. The little girl had been sent to get him, because her mother was sick. He told us that she was only hurt a little, but she was of course badly frightened.\"
  \"All this time I kept a tight hold on the man. He seemed so ugly and frightening to me that I hated to touch him. I could see the others hated him too, for his appearance as well as for what he had done. Even the doctor, who is accustomed to terrible sights, would not go near him.\"
  \"Why? Was he deformed?\" asked Mr. Utterson. \"Or scarred on his face?\"
  Richard shook his head. \"No, but there was a feeling of deformity about him. He looked like everyone else and yet he did not. There was something strange and horrible about his appearance. He seemed like an evil animal on the inside. I cannot speak more clearly than that. Perhaps his nature was evil, so that he made others hate and fear him. I do not know.\"
  \"But what about the door? You said your adventure involved that door across the street,\" said the lawyer, who was good at getting people to tell their stories quickly.
  \"Yes, I'm coming to that,\" said Richard. \"We were all so angry that we promised to destroy his name in London society. We told him we would tell everyone what he had done. Then the man became rather frightened, although he tried to hide it. At last he offered money to the child's family.

前言/序言

  王润霞,《床头灯英语丛书》策划者之一,资深英语教育践行者。1998年以来她按照自己对英语教育的理解,引导女儿取得了一系列惊人的成绩:2004年北京市高考理科第二名,托福(TOEFL)673分(满分677分),清华大学电子工程系专业和综合成绩排名双项第一,获得10多所美国顶尖大学(普林斯顿、耶鲁、麻省理工、加州理工、斯坦福、康奈尔等)的全额奖学金,博士毕业后拿到了麦肯锡、波士顿、贝恩三大咨询公司的工作offer。
  我女儿为什么能在中国的语言环境中学好英语
  我女儿是在中国语言环境中学好英语的一个代表,她的经历或许会给国内正在学或准备学英语的人一些启示,帮助他们少走弯路,最终享受到学好英语所带来的益处。当然,你可能会觉得我孩子的情况很特殊,属于个例。但是,我的英语教学体会是:每个学生都是语言的天才,只要学习方法正确,英语没有学不好的。这些年我一共带了几百名学生,很多考上了世界名校,如美国麻省理工学院、宾夕法尼亚大学、耶鲁大学、康奈尔大学,英国伦敦大学学院等。这些学生都是普通的学生,关键是他们背后都站着一个大事不糊涂、肯为孩子付出、和孩子在正确道路上坚持到底的家长。
  当年我沉痛的教训,后来让孩子少走弯路
  1978年我考入哈尔滨工业大学物理师资班,从此进入教育领域,后来阴差阳错地和英语结下了不解之缘。我们那时高考是不考英语的,进入大学之前我的英语水平可以这样描述:词汇量不超过2位数,单词读音都用汉字标注,能把children读成“秋得润”,英语课本把“工农兵”翻译成“workers,peasants,and soldiers”。上大学之后,我朦朦胧胧地感到英语比较重要,就开始认真学英语。同时把这个当时非常前卫的信息传递给了我的两个弟弟(其中一个弟弟为本书主编),并给他_门买了学英语的书,先后让他们跟着广播、录音机学英语。当时中国经历了特殊历史时期,刚刚恢复高考,我们那年入学的学生年龄和背景差别都很大,有6个孩子的父亲,也有3个孩子的母亲,我们班年龄最大的34岁,我17岁。在那个年代,大家都非常珍惜这来之不易的学习机会,但学习语言年龄小还是很占优势的,我的英语轻松地取得了好成绩。转眼两年英语课结束,我们就认为英语学好了,大功告成了。
  英语老师在结课时告诫大家要多读英语原版书,我就把原版书买回来,也做了计划,每天都看。第一天,看了一页,发现不认识的词比认识的词还要多,第二天也好不了多少,更要命的是看到第10页时已经不知道前面讲的是什么了,生词还是生词……这样坚持了20多天,只得放弃。其他大多数同学据说连一周都没坚持到。多年之后我发现大部分中国人英语学不好的关键原因是所读书的难度远远超出自己的水平,台阶太陡,根本上不去,夭折了。
