来看一封世界上最绝的分手信——也就是小说《Sense and Sensibility》中的 Willoughby威罗比給女主角Marianne玛丽安娜的那封冷血的分手信。
My Dear Madam,
I have just had the honour of receiving your letter, for which I beg to return my sincere acknowledgements. I am much concerned to find there was anything in my behaviour last night that did not meet your approbation; and though I am quite at a loss to discover in what point I could be so unfortunate as to offend you, I entreat your forgiveness [...]. My esteem for your whole family is very sincere; but if I have been so unfortunate as to give rise to a belief of more than I felt, or meant to express, I shall reproach myself for not having been more guarded in my professions of that esteem. [...] It is with great regret that I obey your commands of returning the letters, with which I have been honoured from you, and the lock of hair, which you so obligingly bestowed on me.
I am, dear Madam, Your most obedient humble Servant,
had the honour of receiving your letter
beg to return my sincere acknowledgements
anything in my behaviour... that did not meet your approbation
at a loss to discover in what point I could be so unfortunate as to offend you
if I have been so unfortunate as to give rise to a belief of more than I felt, I shall reproach myself for not having been more guarded in my professions of that esteem.
