Эрнест Хэмингуэй. Киллеры

   Рассказ „Киллеры“, принадлежащий к числу лучших рассказов знаменитого американского писателя Эрнеста Хемингуэя (1899 - 1961), издан необычным образом: текст разбит на небольшие отрывки, каждый и который повторяется дважды: сначала идет английский текст с „подсказками“ - с вкрапленным в него дословным русским переводом и лексико-грамматическим комментарием (то есть адаптированный), а затем - тот же текст, но уже неадаптированный, без подсказок.

Начинающие осваивать английский язык могут при этом читать сначала отрывок текста с подсказками, а затем тот же отрывок - без подсказок. Вы как бы учитесь плавать: сначала плывете с доской, потом без доски. Совершенствующие свой английский могут поступать наоборот: читать текст без подсказок, по мере необходимости подглядывая в подсказки.

   Запоминание слов и выражений происходит при этом за счет их повторяемости, без зубрежки. Кроме того, читатель привыкает к логике английского языка, начинает его „чувствовать“.

   Этот метод избавляет вас от стресса первого этапа освоения языка - от механического поиска каждого слова в словаре и от бесплодного гадания, что же все-таки значит фраза, все слова из которой вы уже нашли.

The door of Henrys lunch-room opened (дверь закусочной Генри отворилась) and two men came in (и двое мужчин вошли /внутрь/). They sat down at the counter (они сели у стойки).

“Whats yours (что для вас, что будете брать: «что ваше»)?” George asked them (спросил их).

“I dont know (я не знаю),” one of the men said (сказал один из мужчин). “What do you want to eat (что ты хочешь съесть), Al?”

“I dont know,” said All. “I dont know what I want to eat.”

Outside it was getting dark (на улице: «снаружи» темнело: «становилось темно»). The street-light came on outside the window (уличный фонарь зажегся за окном; light свет; to come on появиться /на сцене/, возникнуть). The two men at the counter read the menu (читали меню). From the other end of the counter (с другого конца стойки) Nick Adams watched them (глядел на них). He had been talking to George (он разговаривал с Джорджем) when they came in (когда они вошли).

counter [kaunt] menu [`menju:]


“Ill have a roast pork tenderloin (я возьму жареное свиное филе: tenderloin филе, вырезка: tender нежный, мягкий + loin поясница; филейная часть) with apple sauce (с яблочным соусом) and mashed potatoes (и картофельным пюре; to mash раздавливать, разминать),” the first man said (сказал первый мужчина).

“It isnt ready yet (оно еще не готово).”

“What the hell (какого черта: «ада») do you put it on the card for (ты помещаешь, ставишь это в меню)?”

“Thats the dinner (это обед),” George explained (объяснил). “You can get that at six oclock (ты можешь получить это в шесть часов).”

George looked at the clock on the wall behind the counter (посмотрел на часы на стене за стойкой).

“Its five oclock (/сейчас/ пять часов).”

“The clock says twenty minutes past five (часы показывают: «говорят» двадцать минут после пяти = двадцать минут шестого),” the second man said (сказал второй мужчина).

“Its twenty minutes fast (они спешат на двадцать минут; fast быстрый).”

“Oh, to hell with the clock,” the first man said. “What have you got to eat (что у тебя есть поесть)?”

“I can give you any kind of sandwiches (могу дать вам разные сандвичи: «любой вид сандвича»),” George said. “You can have ham and eggs (свинину и яйца = сандвич с ветчиной и яичницей), bacon (бэкон, копченую свиную грудинку) and eggs, liver (печенку) and bacon, or a steak (или бифштекс).”

“It isnt ready yet.”

“What the hell do you put it on the card for?”

“Give me chicken croquettes (дай мне куриные крокеты) with green peas (с зеленым горошком) and cream sauce (под белым: «сливочным» соусом) and mashed potatoes.”

“Thats the dinner.”

“Everything we wants the dinner (все, что мы хотим обед), eh? Thats the way you work it (так: «таким путем» ты это делаешь: «срабатываешь, устраиваешь» = ну и порядки).”

“I can give you ham and eggs, bacon and eggs, liver

“Ill take ham and eggs (я возьму яичницу с ветчиной),” the man called Al said. He wore a derby hat (на нем был: «он носил» котелок) and a black overcoat (и черное пальто) buttoned across the chest (застегнутое наглухо: «через грудь»; button - пуговица). His face was small and white (его лицо было маленьким и белым) and he had tight lips (и у него были сжатые губы; tight плотный, тугой). He wore a silk muffler (шелковое кашне; to muffle закутывать, укутывать; глушить /звук/) and gloves (и перчатки).

“Give me bacon and eggs,” said the other man (сказал другой мужчина). He was about the same size as Al (он был примерно того же роста: «размера», что и Эл). Their faces were different (лица были различны), but they were dressed like twins (но они были одеты, как близнецы). Both wore overcoats too tight for them (слишком узкие для них). They sat leaning forward (наклонившись вперед), their elbows on the counter (их локти на стойке).

“Got anything to drink (есть что-нибудь выпить)?” Al asked.

“Silver beer («серебряное пиво» сорт пива), bevo (морс, напиток /итальянское слово/), ginger-ale (имбирное пиво),” George said.

“I mean (я имею в виду) you got anything to drink?”

“Just those I said (только то, что я сказал).”

“This is a hot town (веселый городок, ну и городок: «это жаркий городок»),” said the other. “What do they call it (как он там называется: «как они его называют»)?”

“Summit (поселок к юго-западу от Чикаго).”

“Ever hear of it (когда-нибудь слышал о нем)?” Al asked his friend (спросил своего друга).

“No,” said the friend.

“What do you do here nights (что вы здесь делаете по вечерам)?” Al asked.

“They eat the dinner,” his friend said. “They all come here and eat the big dinner (они все приходят сюда и едят большой обед).”

“Thats right (это так, верно),” George said.

“So you think thats right (так ты думаешь, считаешь, что это правильно)?” Al asked George.

“Sure (конечно).”

“Youre a pretty bright boy (очень умный: «светлый» парень; pretty красивый, симпатичный; довольно, весьма), arent you (не правда ли: «не есть ли ты»)?”

“Sure,” said George.

“Well, youre not (ну, так вот, ты вовсе не умный парень),” said the other little man (другой маленький человек). “Is he (умный ли он), Al?”

“Hes dumb (тупой: «немой»),” said Al. He turned to Nick (повернулся к Нику). “Whats your name (как тебя зовут: «каково твое имя»)?”

“Adams.”

“Another bright boy (другой = еще один умник),” Al said. “Aint he a bright boy, Max (/ну/ не умник ли он; ain't = isn't; aren't)?”

“The towns full of bright boys (город полон умников),” Max said.

“Well, youre not,” said the other little man. “Is he, Al?”

“Hes dumb,” said Al. He turned to Nick. “Whats your name?”

“Adams.”

“Another bright boy,” Al said. “Aint he a bright boy, Max?”

“The towns full of bright boys,” Max said.


dumb [dΛm] pretty [prэtэ]


George put the two platters (поставил две тарелки), one of ham and eggs, the other of bacon and eggs, on the counter. He set down two side-dishes of fried potatoes (поставил две порции жареного картофеля; siede-dish боковое = сопровождающее блюдо блюдо с гарниром) and closed the wicket into the kitchen (и закрыл окошечко в кухню; wicket калитка; задвижное окошко).

“Which is yours?” he asked Al.

“Dont you remember (ты не помнишь)?”

“Ham and eggs.”

“Just a bright boy (просто умница, ну разве не умник),” Max said. He leaned forward and took the ham and eggs (и взял ветчину с яичницей). Both men ate with their gloves on (оба ели с надетыми перчатками). George watched them eat (смотрел, наблюдал, как они едят).

“What are you looking at (на что ты /так/ смотришь)?” Max looked at George.

“Nothing (ни на что: «/на/ ничто»).”

“The hell you were (как же, рассказывай, черта-с-два ты не смотришь). You were looking at me (на меня).”

“Maybe the boy meant it for a joke (может быть, парень пошутил: «имел в виду это, высказал это мнение для шутки = как шутку»), Max,” Al said.

George laughed (засмеялся).

You dont have to laugh (нечего смеяться: «тебе не надо смеяться»),” Max said to him. “You dont have to laugh at all (вовсе), see (понял: «видишь»)?”

“All right,” said George.

“So he thinks its all right (итак, он полагает, что это в порядке, правильно).” Max turned to Al. He thinks its all right. Thats a good one (хорош он).”

“Oh, hes a thinker (мыслитель),” Al said. They went on eating (продолжали есть).

“Whats the bright boys name down the counter (как зовут того умника, что с другой стороны стойки)?” Al asked Max.

“Hey, bright boy,” Max said to Nick. “You go around on the other side of the counter (зайди за стойку: «иди вокруг на другую сторону стойки») with your boy friend (с твоим дружком = туда, где твой дружок).”

“Whats the idea (а в чем дело, зачем это: «что за идея, в чем идея»)?” Nick asked.

“There isnt any idea (тут нет никакой идеи = просто так, да ни в чем).”

“You better go around (лучше зайди), bright boy,” Al said. Nick went around behind the counter (за стойку).

“Whats the idea?” George asked.

“None of your damn business (не твое чертово: «проклятое» дело; none ничто, ни один, никакой),” Al said. “Whos out in the kitchen (кто там: «снаружи» на кухне)?”

“The nigger (негр).”

“What do you mean the nigger?”

“The nigger that cooks (который готовит, стряпает).”

“Tell him to come in (скажи ему, чтобы зашел).”

“Whats the idea?”

“Tell him to come in.”

“Where do you think you are (где, вы думаете, вы находитесь)?”

“We know damn well where we are (мы знаем чертовски хорошо, где мы находимся),” the man called Max said (сказал человек, которого звали Макс). “Do we look silly (мы выглядим дурачками, глупо)?”

“You talk silly (ты разговариваешь глупо),” Al said to him. “What the hell do you argue with this kid for (какого черта ты споришь с этим ребенком)? Listen (послушай),” he said to George, “tell the nigger to come out here.”

“What are you going to do to him (что вы собираетесь с ним: «ему» сделать)?”

“Nothing. Use your head (пошевели мозгами: «используй свою голову»), bright boy. What would we do to a nigger (что бы мы сделали негру)?”

George opened the slit (открыл окошечко; slit длинный разрез, щель; to slit разрезать в длину) that opened back into the kitchen (которое открывалось назад = вовнутрь в кухню). “Sam,” he called. “Come in here a minute (зайди-ка сюда на минутку).”

“Hey, bright boy,” Max said to Nick. “You go around on the other side of the counter with your boy friend.”

“Whats the idea?” Nick asked.

“There isnt any idea.”

“The nigger.”

“What do you mean the nigger?”

George opened the slit that opened back into the kitchen. “Sam,” he called. “Come in here a minute.”

The door to the kitchen opened and the nigger came in. “What was it (в чем дело: «что это было»)?” he asked. The two men at the counter took a look at him (оглядели его: «взяли взгляд»).

“All right (все в порядке), nigger. You stand right there (стань тут),” Al said.

Sam, the nigger, standing in his apron (стоя в своем фартуке), looked at the two men sitting at the counter. “Yes, sir,” he said. Al got down from his stool (слез со своего стула, табурета).

“Im going back to the kitchen (я пойду назад = туда на кухню) with the nigger and bright boy,” he said. “Go on back to the kitchen, nigger. You go with him, Bright boy.” The little man walked after Nick and Sam (прошел вслед за Ником и Сэмом), the cook (поваром), back into the kitchen. The door shut after them (дверь за ними закрылась). The man called Max sat at the counter opposite George (напротив Джорджа). He didnt look at George (он не смотрел на Джорджа) but looked in the mirror (а смотрел в зеркало) that ran along back of the counter (которое тянулось: «бежало» вдоль за стойкой). Henrys had been made over (заведение Генри было переделано) from a saloon into a lunch-counter (из салуна, бара в закусочную).

“Well, bright boy,” Max said, looking into the mirror, “why dont you say something (почему ты не скажешь что-нибудь)?”

“Whats it all about (что все это значит: «о чем все это»)?”

“Hey, Al,” Max called, “bright boy wants to know (хочет знать) whats all about.”

“Why dont you tell him (что же ты ему не скажешь)?” Als voice came from the kitchen (отозвался голос Эла из кухни).

“What do you think its all about?”

“I dont know.”

“What do you think?”

Max looked into the mirror all the time he was talking (все время, пока говорил).

“I wouldnt say (я бы не сказал, не скажу, пожалуй, не знаю).”

“Hey, Al, bright boy says he wouldnt what he thinks its all about.”

“I can hear you, all right (я могу слышать тебя, в порядке, хорошо = не кричи, я и так слышу),” Al said from the kitchen. He had propped open the slit (он подпер, чтобы оставалось открытым, окошечко, отверстие: «щель») that dishes passed through into the kitchen (через которое передавались блюда на кухню) with a catsup bottle (бутылкой кетчупа). “Listen, bright boy,” he said from the kitchen to George. “Stand a little further (стань немного дальше) along the bar (вдоль бара). You move a little to the left (подвинься немного налево), Max.” He was like a photographer arranging for a group picture (он был точно фотограф, расставляющий /людей/ для групповой фотографии).


“Well, bright boy,” Max said, looking into the mirror, “why dont you say something?”

“Whats it all about?”

“Hey, Al,” Max called, “bright boy wants to know whats all about.”

You move a little to the left, Max.” He was like a photographer arranging for a group picture.



“Talk to me (поговори со мной, побеседуем), bright boy,” Max said. “What do you thinks going to happen (что, как ты думаешь, сейчас произойдет)?”

George did not say anything (не сказал ничего).

“Ill tell you (я скажу тебе),” Max said. “Were going to kill a Swede (мы сейчас убьем шведа, мы собираемся убить шведа). Do you know a big Swede named Ole Andreson (ты знаешь большого = здорового, длинного шведа по имени Оле Андресон)?”

“Yes.”

“He comes here to eat every night, dont he (он приходит сюда поесть каждый вечер, не так ли)?”

“Sometimes he comes here (иногда он сюда приходит).”

“He comes here at six oclock, dont he?”

“If he comes (если приходит).”

“We know all that (мы все это знаем), bright boy,” Max said.

“Talk about something else (поговорим о чем-нибудь другом). Ever go to the movies (когда-нибудь ходишь в кино)?”

“Once in a while (изредка: «иногда в промежуток времени»).”

“You ought to go to the movies more (ты должен бы ходить в кино больше = чаще). The movies are fine (прекрасно, отлично) for a bright boy like you.”

“What are you going to kill Ole Andreson for (за что, для чего вы хотите убить Оле Андресона)? What did he ever do to you (что он вам такого: «когда-либо» сделал)?”

“He never had a chance to do anything to us (у него никогда не было возможности сделать что-нибудь нам). He never even seen us (он даже никогда не видел нас).”

“And hes only going to see us once (и он увидит нас только однажды),” Al said from the kitchen.

“What are you going to kill him for, then (тогда)?” George asked.

“Were killing him for a friend (для друга). Just to oblige a friend (просто, всего лишь, чтобы услужить, сделать приятное другу), bright boy.”

“Shut up (заткнись),” said Al from the kitchen. You talk too goddam much (ты говоришь слишком чертовски много).”

“Well, I got to keep bright boy amused (ну, мне же надо, я же должен развлекать умника: «сохранять, держать его развлекаемым»). Dont I, bright boy?”

“You talk too damn much,” Al said. “The nigger and my bright boy are amused by themselves (сами развлекаются). I got them tied up (я их связал) like a couple of girl friends in the convent (как парочку подружек в монастыре, в монастырской школе).”

“I suppose you were in a convent (значит, ты был в монастыре: «я предполагаю, ты был в монастыре»)?”

“You never know (может, и был: «никогда не знаешь»).”

“You were in a kosher convent (ты был в кошерном монастыре /т.е. в хедере, в школе при синагоге/). Thats where you were (вот где ты был).”


“Talk to me, bright boy,” Max said. “What do you thinks going to happen?”

George did not say anything.

“Ill tell you,” Max said. “Were going to kill a Swede. Do you know a big Swede named Ole Andreson?”

“Yes.”

“He comes here to eat every night, dont he?”

“Sometimes he comes here.”

“He comes here at six oclock, dont he?”

“If he comes.”

“And hes only going to see us once,” Al said from the kitchen.

“What are you going to kill him for, then?” George asked.

“Were killing him for a friend. Just to oblige a friend, bright boy.”

“Shut up,” said Al from the kitchen. You talk too goddam much.”

“Well, I got to keep bright boy amused. Dont I, bright boy?”

“You talk too damn much,” Al said. “The nigger and my bright boy are amused by themselves. I got them tied up like a couple of girl friends in the convent.”

“I suppose you were in a convent?”

“You never know.”

“You were in a kosher convent. Thats where you were.”

George looked up at the clock.

“If anybody comes in you tell them the cook is off (если кто-нибудь придет, ты им скажешь, что повар ушел: «свободен /от работы/, на перерыве»; off указывает на удаление или прекращение чего-либо), and if they keep after it (а если они будут настаивать), you tell them youll go back (что ты пойдешь на кухню: «в заднюю комнату») and cook yourself (и приготовишь сам). Do you get that (ты понял: «получил» это), bright boy?”

“All right,” George said. “What you going to do with us afterward (что вы сделаете с нами после)?”

“Thats depend (это зависит = смотря по обстоятельствам),” Max said. “Thats one of those things you never know at the time (это одна из вещей, которые никогда не знаешь в данное время = заранее)."

George looked up the clock. It was a quarter past six (четверть после шести = четверть седьмого). The door from the street opened (дверь с улицы открылась). A street-car motorman came in (вошел трамвайный вожатый).

“Hello, George,” he said. “Can I get supper (поужинать можно: «могу я получить ужин»)?”

“Sams gone out (вышел),” George said. “Hell be back in about half an hour (он вернется примерно через полчаса).”

“Id better go up the street (я, пожалуй, лучше пойду вверх по улице = пойду еще куда-нибудь),” the motorman said. George looked at the clock. It was twenty minutes past six.

“That was nice (это было славно /проделано/), bright boy,” Max said. “Youre a regular little gentleman (настоящий маленький джентельмен).”

“He knew Id blow his head off (он знал, что я ему голову снесу = прострелю; to blow дуть),” Al said from the kitchen.

“No,” said Max. “It aint that (не поэтому, не в этом дело). Bright boy is nice. Hes a nice boy. I like him (он мне нравится).”


George looked up at the clock.

“If anybody comes in you tell them the cook is off, and if they keep after it, you tell them youll go back and cook yourself. Do you get that, bright boy?”

“All right,” George said. “What you going to do with us afterward?”

“Thats depend,” Max said. “Thats one of those things you never know at the time."

George looked up the clock. It was a quarter past six. The door from the street opened. A street-car motorman came in.

“Hello, George,” he said. “Can I get supper?”

“Sams gone out,” George said. “Hell be back in about half an hour.”

“Id better go up the street,” the motorman said. George looked at the clock. It was twenty minutes past six.

“That was nice, bright boy,” Max said. “Youre a regular little gentleman.”

“He knew Id blow his head off,” Al said from the kitchen.

“No,” said Max. “It aint that. Bright boy is nice. Hes a nice boy. I like him.”

At six-fifty-five (в шесть /часов/ пятьдесят пять) George said: “Hes not coming (он не придет).”

Two other people had been in the lunch-room (двое других людей побывали в закусочной). Once (один раз) George had gone out to the kitchen and made a ham-and-egg sandwich “to go” (на вынос) that a man wanted to take with him (который человек хотел взять с собой). Inside the kitchen he saw Al (внутри кухни он увидел Эла), his derby hat tipped back (его котелок /был/ сдвинут назад; to tip наклонять/ся/; запрокидываться), sitting on a stool beside the wicket (сидящим на табурете возле окошечка) with the muzzle (с дулом; muzzle морда; дуло) of of a sawed-off shotgun (отпиленного ружья = обреза) resting (лежащим, покоящимся) on the ledge (на планке, краю /окошечка/). Nick and the cook were back in the corner (в углу), a towel tied in each of their mouths (полотенце, завязанное = заткнутое в каждом из их ртов = во рту у каждого). George had cooked the sandwich, wrapped it up in oiled paper (завернул его в пергаментную бумагу; oil растительное или минеральное масло; oiled пропитанный маслом, промасленный), put it in a bag (положил его в пакет), brought it in (вынес из кухни, занес в комнату), and the man had paid for it (заплатил за него) and gone out.

“Bright boy can do everything (все умеет: «может делать все»),” Max said. “He can cook and everything. Youd make some girl a nice wife (ты бы сделал какую-нибудь девушку славной женой = повезло твоей будущей жене), bright boy.”

“Yes?” George said. “Your friend (ваш друг), Ole Andreson, isnt going to come (не придет).”

“Well give him ten minutes (мы дадим ему десять минут),” Max said.

Max watched the mirror and the clock. The hands of the clock marked seven oclock (стрелки часов показали семь), and then five minutes past seven (а затем пять минут после семи = пять минут восьмого).


At six-fifty-five George said: “Hes not coming.”

Two other people had been in the lunch-room. Once George had gone out to the kitchen and made a ham-and-egg sandwich “to go” that a man wanted to take with him. Inside the kitchen he saw Al, his derby hat tipped back, sitting on a stool beside the wicket with the muzzle of of a sawed-off shotgun resting on the ledge. Nick and the cook were back in the corner, a towel tied in each of their mouths. George had cooked the sandwich, wrapped it up in oiled paper, put it in a bag, brought it in, and the man had paid for it and gone out.

“Bright boy can do everything,” Max said. “He can cook and everything. Youd make some girl a nice wife, bright boy.”

“Yes?” George said. “Your friend, Ole Andreson, isnt going to come.”

“Well give him ten minutes,” Max said.

Max watched the mirror and the clock. The hands of the clock marked seven oclock, and then five minutes past seven.




“Come on (да ладно, давай), Al,” said Max. “We better go. Hes not coming.”

“Better give him five minutes,” Al said from the kitchen.

In the five minutes a man came in, and George explained that the cook was sick (объяснил, что повар болен).

“Why dont you get another cook (почему же вы не возьмете другого повара)?” the man asked.

“Arent you running a lunch-counter (разве вы не держите закусочную)?” He went out.

“Come on, Al,” Max said.

“What about (а что насчет, а как с) the two bright boys and the nigger?”

“There all right (пусть их: «они в порядке, нормально»).”

“You think so (ты так полагаешь)?”

“Sure. Were through with it (здесь уже все /закончено/: «мы /уже/ сквозь, через это»).”

“I dont like it (мне это не нравится),” said Al. Its sloppy (нечистая работа; slop жидкая грязь; sloppy покрытый лужами; неряшливый, небрежный). You talk too much (ты слишком много болтаешь).”

“Oh, what the hell,” said Max. “We got to keep amused, havent we?”

“You talk too much, all the same (все равно),” Al said. He came out from the kitchen. The cut-off barrels of the shotgun (обрезанные стволы ружья) made a slight bulge (делали легкую выпуклость) under the waist of his too tight-fitting overcoat (под талией = на боку его слишком узкого пальто). He straightened his coat (он одернул свое пальто) with his gloved hands.

“So long (прощай, пока), bright boy,” he said to George. “You got a lot of luck (везет тебе: «имеешь много удачи, большую удачу»).”

“Thats the truth (это правда),” Max said. You ought to play the races (тебе надо бы играть на скачках), bright boy.”

The two of them went out the door. George watched them, through the window, pass under the arc-light (как они прошли под /дуговым/ фонарем; arc /электрическая/ дуга) and cross the street (и пересекли улицу). In their tight overcoats and derby hats they looked like a vaudeville team (на водевильную команду, на эстрадную пару). George went back through the swinging-door (через вращающуюся, двустворчатую, открывающуюся в обе стороны дверь) into the kitchen and untied (развязал) Nick and the cook.

“I dont want any more of that (я не хочу больше ничего подобного = с меня довольно),” said Sam, the cook. “I dont want any more of that.”

Nick stood up (встал). He had never had a towel in his mouth before (он никогда раньше не имел полотенца во рту).

“Say (послушай: «скажи»),” he said. “What the hell?” He was trying to swagger it off (он пытался отмахнуться от этого /от происшедшего/, сделать вид, что ему все нипочем; to swagger расхаживать с важным видом; чваниться; хвастать).

“They were going to kill Ole Andreson,” George said. “They were going to shoot him (они собирались застрелить его) when he came in to eat.”

“Ole Andreson?”

“Sure.”

The cook felt the corners of his mouth with his thumbs (потрогал углы своего рта большими пальцами; to feel чувствовать; ощупывать).

“They all gone?” he asked.

“Yeah,” said George. “Theyre gone now (они теперь все ушли).”

“I dont like it,” said the cook. “I dont like any of it at all.”

“Listen,” George said to Nick. “You better go see Ole Andreson.”

“All right.”

“You better not have anything to do with it at all (лучше не связывайся: «не имей никакого дела с этим всем»),” Sam, the cook, said. “You better stay way out of it (лучше держись подальше от этого: «оставайся прочь, вне этого»).”

“Dont go if you dont want to (не ходи, если не хочешь),” George said.

“Mixing up in this (вмешиваясь в это, вмешательство в это) aint going to get you anywhere (никуда тебя не приведет = ни к чему хорошему не приведет),” the cook said. “You stay out of it.”

“Ill go see him,” Nick said to George. “Where does he live (где он живет)?”

The cook turned away (отвернулся).

“Little boys always know what they want to do (маленькие мальчики всегда знают, что они хотят делать),” he said.

“He lives up (вверх по улице) at Hirschs rooming-house (в меблированных комнатах Хирш),” George said to Nick.

“Ill go up there.”


“I dont want any more of that,” said Sam, the cook. “I dont want any more of that.”

Nick stood up. He had never had a towel in his mouth before.

“Say,” he said. “What the hell?” He was trying to swagger it off.

“They were going to kill Ole Andreson,” George said. “They were going to shoot him when he came in to eat.”

“Ole Andreson?”

“Sure.”

Outside the arc-light shone through the bare branches of a tree (на улице дуговой фонарь светил сквозь голые ветки дерева). Nick walked up the street beside the car-tracks (возле трамвайных путей) and turned at the next arc-light down a side-street (и свернул у следующего фонаря в боковую улицу, в переулок). Three houses up the street (через три дома) was Hirschs rooming-house. Nick walked up the two steps (поднялся на две ступеньки) and pushed the bell (и надавил кнопку звонка). A woman came to the door.

“Is Ole Andreson here?”

“Do you want to see him?”

“Yes, if hes in (если он дома).”

Nick followed the woman up a flight of stairs (последовал за женщиной вверх по пролету лестницы) and back to the end of a corridor. She knocked on the door (она постучала в дверь).

“Who is it (кто там: «кто это»)?”

“Its somebody to see you (тут вас спрашивают: «кто-то к вам»), Mr. Andreson,” the woman said.

“Its Nick Adams.”

“Come in.”

Nick opened the door and went into the room. Ole Andreson was lying on the bed (лежал на кровати) with all his clothes on (одетый: «с одеждой на нем»). He had been a heavyweight prize-fighter (боксером-тяжеловесом; heavy тяжелый; weight вес; prize награда, премия; to fight драться, биться) and he was too long for the bed (слишком длинный для кровати). He lay with his head on two pillows (с головой на двух подушках). He did not look at Nick.

“What was it (в чем дело: «что это было»)?” he asked.

“I was up at Henrys,” Nick said, “and two fellows came in (пришли два парня, типа) and tied me and the cook, and they said they were going to kill you.”

It sounded silly when he said it (прозвучало, звучало глупо, когда он это сказал). Ole Andreson said nothing.

“George thought I better come and tell you about it (Джордж подумал, что мне лучше придти и сказать вам об этом).”

“There isnt anything I can do about it (я ничего не могу поделать с этим),” Ole Andreson said.

“Ill tell you what they were like (как они выглядели: «на что они были похожи»).”

“I dont want to know (я не хочу знать) what they were like,” Ole Andreson said. He looked at the wall (на стену). “Thanks for coming to tell me about it (спасибо, что пришел рассказать мне об этом).”

“Thats all right (не стоит /благодарности/: «это в порядке»).”

Nick looked at the big man lying on the bed.

“Dont you want me to go and see the police (не хотите, чтобы я сходил и заявил в полицию)?”

“No,” Ole Andreson said. “That wouldnt do any good (это бесполезно: «это не сделало бы ничего хорошего»).”

“Isnt there something I could do (есть тут что-нибудь, что бы я мог сделать = могу я чем-нибудь помочь)?”

“No. There aint anything to do.”

“Maybe it was just a bluff (может быть, это был просто обман, блеф).”

“No. It aint just a bluff.”

Ole Andreson rolled over (перевернулся: «перекатился») toward the wall (к стене), “I just cant make up my mind (я просто не могу решиться, собраться с духом) to go out (выйти). I been in here all day (я был здесь внутри целый день).”

“Couldnt you get out of town (не могли бы вы уехать из города)?”

“No,” Ole Andreson said. “Im through with all that running around (я покончил со всей этой беготней: «беганьем вокруг, повсюду»).”

He looked at the wall.

“There aint anything to do now.”

“Couldnt you fix it up some way (не могли бы вы это уладить как-нибудь; to fix укрепить; починить)?”

“No. I got in wrong (я сделал ошибку, влип = теперь уже поздно; wrong неверный, неправильный).” He talked in the same flat voice (он говорил тем же плоским = унылым голосом). “There aint anything to do. After a while (через некоторое время) Ill make up my mind to go out.”

“I better go back and see George,” Nick said.

“So long,” said Ole Andreson. He did not look toward Nick. “Thanks for coming around (спасибо, что зашел).”


“What was it?” he asked.

police [p`li:s]]


Nick went out. As he shut the door he saw Ole Andreson with all his clothes on, lying on the bed looking at the wall.

“Hes been in his room all day,” the landlady said downstairs (сказала хозяка комнат внизу /лестницы/). “I guess he dont feel well (я думаю, уж не заболел ли: «он не чувствует себя хорошо»; to guess угадывать; предполагать). I said to him: Mr. Andreson, you ought to go out and take a walk (вам надо бы выйти и прогуляться: «взять = сделать прогулку») on a nice fall day like this (в такой прекрасный осенний день), but he didnt feel like it (ему не захотелось).”

“He doesnt want to go out (он не хочет выходить из дому).”

“Im sorry he dont feel well (мне жаль, что он чувствует себя неважно),” the woman said. “Hes an awfully nice man (ужасно славный человек). He was in the ring (он был на ринге = был боксером), you know.”

“I know it.”

“Youd never know it (никогда бы не догадаться: вы бы никогда этого не узнали) except from the way his face is (за исключением, кроме как по тому, каково его лицо),” the woman said. They stood talking just inside the street door (они стояли, разговаривая, прямо в двери на улицу). “Hes just as gentle (настолько он мягкий, кроткий).”

“Well, good-night (прощайте, доброго вечера, ночи), Mrs. Hirsch,” Nick said.

“Im not Mrs. Hirsch,” the woman said. “She owns the place (она владеет этим местом). I just look after it for her (я просто присматриваю за ним для нее). Im Mrs. Bell.”

“Well, good-night, Mrs. Bell,” Nick said.

“Good-night,” the woman said.

guess [ges]


Nick walked up the dark street to the corner under the arc-light (прошел по темной улице до угла под фонарем), and then along the car-tracks to Henrys eating house. George was inside, back of the counter.

“Did you see Ole?”

“Yes,” said Nick. “Hes in his room and he wont go out.”

The cook opened the door from the kitchen when he heard Nicks voice.

“I dont even listen to it (я даже не слушаю это),” he said and shut the door.

“Did you tell him about it?” George asked.

“Sure. I told him but he knows what its all about.”

“Whats he going to do?”

“Nothing.”

“Theyll kill him.”

“I guess they will.”

“He must have not mixed up in something in Chicago (ему не надо было впутываться во что-то там в Чикаго).”

“I guess so (полагаю, что так),” said Nick.

“Its a hell of a thing (скверное: «адское» дело; hell ад).”

“Its an awful thing,” Nick said.

They did not say anything. George reached down for a towel (достал полотенце: «потянулся вниз за полотенцем») and wiped the counter (и вытер стойку).

“I wonder what he did (интересно, что же он такое сделал)?” Nick said.

“Double-crossed somebody (перехитрил, обошел кого-то, перебежал кому-то дорогу). Thats what they kill them for (вот за что они их убивают = именно за это обычно убивают).”

“Im going to get out of this town (я уеду, хотел бы, собираюсь уехать из этого города),” Nick said.

“Yes,” said George. “Thats a good thing to do (это хорошо бы: «это хорошая штука = хорошо бы так сделать»).”

“I cant stand (я не могу вынести, терпеть) to think about him waiting in the room (когда подумаю, как он ждет в комнате) and knowing hes going to get it (и знает, что получит это = что с ним кончено). Its too damned awful (это ужасно: «это слишком чертовски: «проклято» ужасно»).”

“Well,” said George, “you better not think about it (а ты лучше не думай об этом).”
