《我與地壇》,長篇哲思抒情散文,中國當代著名作家史鐵生著。是史鐵生文學作品中,充滿哲思又極為人性化的代表作之一。地壇只是一個載體,而文章的本質卻是一個絕望的人尋求希望的過程,以及對母親的思念。

 

自從那個下午我無意中進了這園子,就再沒長久地離開過它。我一下子就理解了它的意圖。正如我在一篇小說中所說的:“在人口密聚的城市里,有這樣一個寧靜的去處,像是上帝的苦心安排。”
Beginning with that afternoon when I happened to go to this park, I’ve never been away from it for long. I understood at once why it was there. As I said in one story, “In a densely populated city, it’s as if God painstakingly arranged for a place as serene as this.”

兩條腿殘廢后的最初幾年,我找不到工作,找不到去路,忽然間幾乎什么都找不到了,我就搖了輪椅總是到它那兒去,僅為著那兒是可以逃避一個世界的另一個世界。The first few years after I was crippled, I couldn’t find work: I had no future; all of a sudden, it was almost as though I couldn’t find anything. And so I wheeled myself to the park almost every day: it was another world, one where I could escape this world.

我在那篇小說中寫道:“沒處可去我便一天到晚耗在這園子里。跟上班下班一樣,別人去上班我就搖了輪椅到這兒來。園子無人看管,上下班時間有些抄近路的人們從園中穿過,園子里活躍一陣,過后便沉寂下來。”
I wrote in one story, “With no place to go, I used to spend the whole day in the park every day: other people went to work; I went to the park. It was an abandoned park. When it was time to go to work or time to go home, people took shortcuts through the park, and it became animated for a while. Afterwards, it was still.”

“園墻在金晃晃的空氣中斜切下一溜蔭涼,我把輪椅開進去,把椅背放倒,坐著或是躺著,看書或者想事,撅一杈樹枝左右拍打,驅趕那些和我一樣不明白為什么要來這世上的小昆蟲。”
“In the dazzling golden sunlight, the park’s wall provided shade: I wheeled myself over there, put the back of the wheelchair down, and—either sitting or lying down—I read or thought. I would break off a cypress twig and drive away the insects who didn’t know any better than I did why they had been born in this world.”

“蜂兒如一朵小霧穩穩地停在半空;螞蟻搖頭晃腦捋著觸須,猛然間想透了什么,轉身疾行而去;瓢蟲爬得不耐煩了,累了祈禱一回便支開翅膀,忽悠一下升空了;樹干上留著一只蟬蛻,寂寞如一間空屋;露水在草葉上滾動,聚集,壓彎了草葉轟然墜地摔開萬道金光。”
“A bee like a tiny piece of mist hung on in midair; an ant was deep in thought, its head wagging and its antennae quivering, and then, all of a sudden, it must have come up with the right answer, for it turned back and scudded off; the ladybug climbed around wearily, stopped to pray for a while, and then, flapping its wings, suddenly soared to the sky; on the tree trunk there was one cicada, as lonely as an empty room; dew rolled around on the leaves of weeds, and then coalesced, weighing the leaves down until they broke into thousands of rays of golden light.”
