The Three Golden Apples by Nathaniel Hawthorne is a story about Hercules who searched for the golden apples that grew in the garden of the Hesperides.

纳撒尼尔•霍桑(1804年7月4日—1864年5月19日)。19世纪前半期美国最伟大的小说家。 美国心理分析小说的第一人,因深受家庭和清教徒思想的影响在其作品中更多地反映人心深处的恶。其代表作品有:短篇小说集《古宅青苔》、《重讲一遍的故事》等,长篇小说《红字》、《带七个尖顶的阁楼》、《福谷传奇》、《玉石人像》等。这些都是世界文学史上不可多得的经典名著。其代表作品《红字》已成为世界文学的经典之一。

For, all of a sudden, the Old One seemed to disappear out of his grasp, and he found himself holding a stag by the fore and hind leg!But still he kept fast hold.Then the stag disappeared, and in its stead there was a sea-bird, fluttering and screaming, while Hercules clutched it by the wing and claw!But the bird could not get away.Immediately afterwards, there was an ugly three-headed dog, which growled and barked at Hercules, and snapped fiercely at the hands by which he held him!But Hercules would not let him go.

因为,突然间,老家伙似乎从他的手上消失了,他发现他攥着的是竟然是一只雄鹿的前腿和后腿!但是,他仍然紧紧地攥着不松手。接着,雄鹿消失了,换成了一只海鸟,扑扇着翅膀,厉声叫着,赫拉克勒斯紧握着它的翅膀和爪子!这海鸟仍无法挣脱。紧接着,出现了一条丑陋的三头恶狗,它朝着赫拉克勒斯狂吠,还恶狠狠地撕咬他抓着它的双手。可是赫拉克勒斯仍然不让他走。

霍桑是心理小说的开创者,擅长剖析人的“内心”。他着重探讨道德和罪恶的问题,主张通过善行和自忏来洗刷罪恶、净化心灵,从而得到拯救。然而霍桑并非全写黑暗,他在揭露社会罪恶和人的劣根性的同时,对许多善良的主人公寄予极大的同情。

霍桑描写黑暗的巨大力量,是由于受到加尔文派教义关于与生俱来的堕落与原罪思想的影响。没有一位思想深邃的人能完全摆脱这种思想所发生的各种形式的影响。——梅尔维尔

霍桑的小说“属于艺术的最高层次,一种服从于非常崇高级别的天才的艺术。”——爱伦·坡

Nathaniel Hawthorne's reputation as a writer is a very pleasing fact, because his writing is not good for anything, and this is a tribute to the man.—Ralph Waldo Emerson

The fine thing in Hawthorne is that he cared for the deeper psychology, and that, in his way, he tried to become familiar with it.—Henry James

The style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth.—Edgar Allan Poe

    这篇小说这要讲了赫拉克勒斯与巨人之间争夺金苹果的故事,先是赫拉克勒斯被巨人骗了,帮他扛天金苹果被巨人摘走,后来赫拉克勒斯运用智慧,将金苹果骗了回来,(我不得不说,在我看来,不是赫拉克勒斯有多聪明,而是巨人真是超乎常人的无脑)尽管这篇小说继续了骗与被骗的故事,但是寓言毕竟是寓言,还是一篇内容积极向上的小说,结局可以说……展开↓
