East Coker from “The Four Quartets“

诗歌 世界文学


...
You say I am repeating
Something I have said before. I shall say it again.
Shall I say it again? In order to arrive there,
To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.

― T.S. Eliot “East Coker“

译文:
你说我在重复
我之前曾说过的。我还要再一次谈起。
我还要再次谈起吗?为了到达那里,
到达你所在之地,从你所不在之处,
你必须走一条没有欢愉之路。
为了达到你所不解之物,
你必须走一条无知之路。
为了获得你所未拥有的,
你必须走一条被剥夺之路。
为了成就你所不是之物,
你必须走一条非我之路。
你所不知道的是你所唯一知道的
你所拥有的是你所不拥有的
你所在之地是你所不在之地。

T.S. Eliot
