不要温和地走进那个良夜

今天在一次偶然间,又听到曲子No Time For Caution,这是我最喜欢的纯音乐之一了,说名字你可能不太清楚,但是说起《星际穿越》(Interstellar)可能就会很熟悉了,这首曲子是电影主题曲吧。

当然对于一个没有任何音乐基础的人也只能抱着欣赏的态度去听这首曲子,每次听这首曲子都会想起电影中那句“Do not go gentle into that good night”,这是老布兰德教授在库伯一行人出发探索宜居星系以及布兰德教授临终前说的话。整个句子翻译过来就是“不要温和地走进那个良夜”,其实这句出自英国诗人狄兰·托马斯的诗篇《不要温和地走进那个良夜》(Do not go gentle into that good night),是其写给病危父亲的诗。在当时他的父亲已经生命垂危,丧失了斗志,准备离开这个世界,狄兰·托马斯用这首诗来告诉父亲不要放弃斗志与任何活下去的希望。诗句里面反复出现“Do not go gentle into that good night”以及“Rage,rage against the dying of light”(怒斥,怒斥光明的消逝),多次的反复,也就使这两句成为整首诗的基调。也就是如此强有力的诗词与《星际穿越》中亲情、探索未知星系生命、爱情主题特别的契合。老布兰德教授用这首诗对一队流浪太空的人的激励。不得不说,在这部电影中,这首诗配上No Time for Caution这首曲子,非常震撼。

Do not go gentle into that good night
不要温和地走进那个良夜

Dylan Thomas, 1914 - 1953
狄兰·托马斯


翻译:巫宁坤


Do not go gentle into that good night,
不要温和地走进那个良夜,


Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
老年应当在日暮时燃烧咆哮;


Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
怒斥,怒斥光明的消逝。



Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
虽然智慧的人临终时懂得黑暗有理,


Because their words had forked no lightning they
因为他们的话没有迸发出闪电,他们


Do not go gentle into that good night.
也并不温和地走进那个良夜。



Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright

Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
可能曾会多么光辉地在绿色的海湾里舞蹈,


Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
怒斥,怒斥光明的消逝。



Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
狂暴的人抓住并歌唱过翱翔的太阳,


And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
懂得,但为时太晚,他们使太阳在途中悲伤,


Do not go gentle into that good night.
也并不温和地走进那个良夜。



Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
失明的眼睛可以像流星一样闪耀欢欣,


Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
怒斥,怒斥光明的消逝。



And you, my father, there on the sad height,
您啊,我的父亲.在那悲哀的高处.


Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
