英語講安徒生童話故事(1)



there was once a woman who wished very much to have a little child, but she could not obtain her wish. at last she went to a fairy, and said, “i should so very much like to have a little child; can you tell me where i can find one?”

“oh, that can be easily managed,” said the fairy. “here is a barleycorn of a different kind to those which grow in the farmer’s fields, and which the chickens eat; put it into a flower-pot, and see what will happen.”

“thank you,” said the woman, and she gave the fairy twelve shillings, which was the price of the barleycorn. then she went home and planted it, and immediately there grew up a large handsome flower, something like a tulip in appearance, but with its leaves tightly closed as if it were still a bud. “it is a beautiful flower,” said the woman, and she kissed the red and golden-colored leaves, and while she did so the flower opened, and she could see that it was a real tulip. within the flower, upon the green velvet stamens, sat a very delicate and graceful little maiden. she was scarcely half as long as a thumb, and they gave her the name of “thumbelina,” or tiny, because she was so small. a walnut-shell, elegantly polished, served her for a cradle; her bed was formed of blue violet-leaves, with a rose-leaf for a counterpane. here she slept at night, but during the day she amused herself on a table, where the woman had placed a plateful of water. round this plate were wreaths of flowers with their stems in the water, and upon it floated a large tulip-leaf, which served tiny for a boat. here the little maiden sat and rowed herself from side to side, with two oars made of white horse-hair. it really was a very pretty sight. tiny could, also, sing so softly and sweetly that nothing like her singing had ever before been heard. one night, while she lay in her pretty bed, a large, ugly, wet toad crept through a broken pane of glass in the window, and leaped right upon the table where tiny lay sleeping under her rose-leaf quilt. “what a pretty little wife this would make for my son,” said the toad, and she took up the walnut-shell in which little tiny lay asleep, and jumped through the window with it into the garden.

the flea, the grasshopper, and the skipjack1 once wanted to see which of them could jump highest; and they invited the whole world, and whoever else would come, to see the grand sight. and there the three famous jumpers were met together in the room.

“yes, i’ll give my daughter to him who jumps highest,” said the king, “for it would be mean to let these people jump for nothing.”

the flea stepped out first. he had very pretty manners, and bowed in all directions, for he had young ladies’ blood in his veins, and was accustomed to consort only with human beings; and that was of great consequence.

then came the grasshopper: he was certainly much heavier, but he had a good figure, and wore the green uniform that was born with him. this person, moreover, maintained that he belonged to a very old family in the land of egypt, and that he was highly esteemed there. he had just come from the field, he said, and had been put into a card house three stories high, and all made of picture cards with the figures turned inwards. there were doors and windows in the house, cut in the body of the queen of hearts.

“i sing so,” he said, “that sixteen native crickets who have chirped from their youth up, and have never yet had a card house of their own, would become thinner than they are with envy if they were to hear me.”

both of them, the flea and the grasshopper, took care to announce who they were, and that they considered themselves entitled to marry a princess.

far out in the sea the water is as blue as the petals of the most beautiful corn-flower, and as clear as the purest glass. but it is very deep, deeper than any cable will sound; many steeples must be placed one above the other to reach from the ground to the surface of the water. and down there live the sea-people.

now, you must not believe there is nothing down there but the naked sand; no,—the strangest trees and plants grow there, so pliable in their stalks and leaves that at the least motion of the water they move just as if they had life. all fishes, great and small, glide among the twigs, just as here the birds do in the trees. in the deepest spot of all lies the sea-king’s castle: the walls are of coral, and the tall, gothic windows of the clearest amber; shells form the roof, and they open and shut according as the water flows. it looks lovely, for in each shell lie gleaming pearls, a single one of which would have great value in a queen’s diadem.

the sea-king below there had been a widower for many years, while his old mother kept house for him. she was a clever woman, but proud of her rank, so she wore twelve oysters on her tail, while the other great people were only allowed to wear six. beyond this she was deserving of great praise, especially because she was very fond of her grand-daughters, the little sea-princesses. these were six pretty children; but the youngest was the most beautiful of all. her skin was as clear and as fine as a rose leaf; her eyes were as blue as the deepest sea; but, like all the rest, she had no feet, for her body ended in a fish-tail.

yes,

in a thousand years people will fly on the wings of steam through the air, over the ocean! the young inhabitants of america will become visitors of old europe. they will come over to see the monuments and the great cities, which will then be in ruins, just as we in our time make pilgrimages to the tottering splendors of southern asia. in a thousand years they will come!

the thames, the danube, and the rhine still roll their course, mont blanc stands firm with its snow-capped summit, and the northern lights gleam over the land of the north; but generation after generation has become dust, whole rows of the mighty of the moment are forgotten, like those who already slumber under the hill on which the rich trader, whose ground it is, has built a bench, on which he can sit and look out across his waving corn fields.

“to europe!” cry the young sons of america; “to the land of our ancestors, the glorious land of monuments and fancy—to europe!”

the ship of the air comes. it is crowded with passengers, for the transit is quicker than by sea. the electro-magnetic wire under the ocean has already telegraphed the number of the aerial caravan. europe is in sight. it is the coast of ireland that they see, but the passengers are still asleep; they will not be called till they are exactly over england. there they will first step on european shore, in the land of shakespeare, as the educated call it; in the land of politics, the land of machines, as it is called by others.
