Pre reading questions
Pre-reading Questions

  • The dictionary definition of read between the lines is:“find more meaning than the words appear to express; gather more meanings from a text that are not actually stated, but implied”. Write between the lines is not a set phrase. The writer has invented this phrase by following the pattern of the set phrase read between the lines and replacing read with write to stress the importance of writing notes and comments in the book one is reading. In spite of the word “writing” in the title, this essay is actually a piece of good advice on how to “read” efficiently.

  • Paradise Lost:

  • 英国著名诗人约翰-弥尔顿(John Milton)的大型史诗《失乐园(Paradise Lost)》。

  • 《失乐园》描写的是魔鬼撒旦因为率同叛逆的众天使与上帝抗争而被打入地狱火湖,在烈火中备受煎熬。就在这时,上帝创造了伊甸园,亚当与妻子夏娃在这里安居。撒旦闻讯后从地狱逃 出,找到伊甸乐园,窃听到关于智慧树与禁果的秘密,并引诱亚当与夏娃偷食禁果,打破了上帝与他们的约定,触怒了上帝,因而将他们逐出乐园,谪降人间,忍受苦难,而撒旦最终也受到了上帝的惩罚,被变为蟒蛇。

  • Rembrandt: (Rembrandt 1606~1669)1606年7月15日生于莱顿,1669年10月4日卒于阿姆斯特丹。其画作体裁广泛,擅长肖像画、风景画、风俗画、宗教画、历史画等。自画像莱顿时期(约1625~1631)作品采取强烈的明暗对比画法,用光线塑造形体,画面层次丰富,富有戏剧性。

  • 伦勃朗在绘画史——不独是荷兰的而是全欧的绘画史上所占的地位,是与意大利文艺复兴诸巨匠不相上下的。他所代表的是北欧的民族性与民族天才。造成伦勃朗的伟大的面目的,是表现他的特殊心魂的一种特殊技术:光暗。这名辞,一经用来谈到这位画家时,便具有一种特别的意义。换言之,伦勃朗的光暗和文艺复兴期意大利作家的光暗是含着绝然不同的作用的。法国十九世纪画家兼批评家弗罗芒坦(Fromentin)目他为“夜光虫”。又有人说他以黑暗来绘成光明。
