英语学习:李白“静夜思”的几种英文译法

床前明月光

疑是地上霜

举头望明月

低头思故乡


Bright moonlight before my bed,

I take as frost on the ground instead.

Looking up I see the bright moon,

Bowing down I long to be home soon.


这是我翻译的,不很满意。诗歌不好翻译,李白这首我觉得更难翻。汉语原诗言简优美,英语很难体现。下面录取了几个其他人的翻译,你觉得哪个好呢?


Thoughts on a Quiet Night


The moon shines on my bed brightly,

So that I mistook it for frost on the ground.

I gaze at the moonlight with head uplifted;

Now my head droops, and my thoughts turn homeward.

 

(刘师舜 译)

 

Still Night’s Muse

 

Afront the bed the Luna beams bright,

Wearing a look of seemingly rime white.

Eyes upcast toward the Luna,

Eyes downcast, engenders my nostalgia.

 

(黄龙 译)

 

Moonlight Night

 

Before the couch moonlight came.

I had thought it frost on the ground.

Looking up, I gazed on the moon,

And bowed my head with thoughts of home.

 

(林如斯 译)

 

Looking at the Moon

 

Before my bed the moon shone brightly.

I thought it was frost.

I lifted my head and looked at the moon.

When I lowered my head I thought of home.

 

(王克难 译)

 

Quiet Night Thought

 

Before my bed the moonlight glitters

Like frost upon the ground.

I look up to the mountain moon,

Look down and think of home.


(无名氏 译)

家里有本英译唐诗,是吕叔湘编注的

In The Quiet Night

So bright a gleam on the foot of my bed

Could there have been a frost already?

Lifting myself to look, I found that it was moonlight.

Sinking back again, I thought suddenly of home.
