    NARRATOR:Listen to a conversation between a student and his creative writing professor.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR: John, listen, I can clearly see that you put a lot of time into your response paper...MALE STUDENT: I did! It took me forever. I rewrote it a dozen times.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR: And your hard work shows. Unfortunately…it’s a week late.MALE STUDENT: I know, sorry. I just got a little behind, y’know, sports and homework… But I’m on top of things now.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR: Glad to hear it. Now, as for our meeting today… I like to talk to all of my creative writing students one-on-one at least once during the term and see how they’re doing.MALE STUDENT: I think I’m doing OK. Busy, you know, but other than that…

    FEMALE PROFESSOR: Well, I’ve found through the years that some of my assignments can be pretty tough for first year students like yourself.Like the response paper you just did, the explication of a Pablo Neruda poem.Uh, by the way, why did you choose “The Lemon”? It’s an… unusual choice.

    MALE STUDENT: It was my favorite in a book of Neruda’s poems. All the poems are about everyday objects and, y’know, simple pleasures.FEMALE PROFESSOR: Right. Elemental Odes. One of my favorites.

    MALE STUDENT: I liked how Neruda took things like fruit and vegetables and... socks... and used metaphors and similes to describe them as these wonderful, mysterious things.Like in “The Lemon,” he describes a lemon falling to Earth from the stars!And he compares a slice of lemon to a stained-glass window. It’s so original.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR: Beautiful images, aren’t they? Neruda didn’t win the Nobel Prize for literature by accident.MALE STUDENT: No, he didn’t.FEMALE PROFESSOR: Now, as you know, the paper was only the first half of the assignment…and I’m concerned about your ability to complete the second part on time, considering how much time the first part took you.

    MALE STUDENT: Actually, I finished it just before I came here.FEMALE PROFESSOR: Excellent!MALE STUDENT: It was tricky, too. You know, having to write a poem inspired by “The Lemon”, but in a completely different style.FEMALE PROFESSOR: Right.

    MALE STUDENT: In order to do that, I really had to study Neruda’s style and read a lot of his stuff, which was great.But... “The Lemon” is free verse. So to do the assignment, I decided to use a strict meter—iambic pentameter, to be as different as possible.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR: So each line of your poem has ten syllables and every other syllable is stressed.Interesting choice. Iambic pentameter is certainly different from free verse!

    MALE STUDENT: It was hard for me, though, because usually when I write a poem, I choose my own topic, and I just write. I don’t worry about counting syllables or anything.So... I’m kinda hoping we won’t have more assignments like this.FEMALE PROFESSOR: Sorry to disappoint you, but these assignments are designed to get you out of your comfort zone, to get you reading and writing a wide variety of poetic styles.

  • 请听一段学生与文学创作课教授之间的对话。

    教授:学生,听我说。我可以清楚地看到你在读书笔记上花了不少时间。学生:是的!我花了很长时间。我重写了十几次。

    教授:你的作业能够反映出这一点。但很遗憾,你晚交了一星期。学生:我知道。对不起。我只是稍微晚了点,你知道的,我还要参加运动、做作业。但是现在我把这些事都处理好了。

    教授:很高兴听你这么说!现在,就我们今天的面谈而言,我想和所有文学创作课的学生,在学期中至少进行一次一对一的谈话,看看他们的作业完成得怎么样了。学生:我想我做的还不错。虽然很忙,你知道的,但除此之外……

    教授:嗯,我发现这些年来,我布置的一些作业对于像你一样的大一新生来说真的很难。就比如你刚完成的读书笔记,关于巴勃罗·聂鲁达的一首诗歌的解读。额…顺便问一下,你为什么会选择《柠檬》这首诗?这个选择不同寻常。

    学生:这是我在《聂鲁达诗集》中最喜欢的一首诗。所有的诗都是关于日常事物的,还有,你知道的,关于简单的快乐。教授:是的,《元素的颂歌》,是我最喜欢的诗集之一。

    学生:我喜欢聂鲁达将水果、蔬菜和袜子一类的东西当作描写对象的方式,并使用隐喻和明喻来将它们描写成奇妙而神秘的东西。就像在《柠檬》一诗中所描述的那样。他描写了一颗从星星坠落到地球上的柠檬。并将柠檬片与彩色的玻璃窗作对比。这非常新颖!

    教授:很美的画面,不是吗?聂鲁达获得诺贝尔文学奖并非偶然。学生:是的,他不是。教授:现在,正如你所知,读书笔记只是作业的前半部分。考虑到在第一部分上你所花费的时间,我很担心你是否能按时完成第二部分。

    学生:事实上,在到这里之前,我刚完成了第二部分。教授:非常棒!学生:第二部分也很棘手。你知道的,我得写一首灵感来源于《柠檬》,但风格又截然不同的诗。教授:是的!

    学生:为了做到这一点,我真的不得不去研究聂鲁达的写作风格,并阅读了很多他非常优秀的作品。但是《柠檬》是自由诗体。所以为了完成作业,我决定用一种严格的韵律来写——五音步抑扬格,尽可能用不同的风格写。

    教授:所以你的诗每一行都有十个音节,相隔的音节会重读。很有趣的选择!五音步抑扬格肯定与自由诗体截然不同。

    学生:虽然这对我来说很难,因为通常当我写一首诗时,我会选择自己的主题,而我只需要写就行了。我不用去担心数音节之类的事情。所以,我有点希望我们不会再有这样的作业了。教授:很抱歉要让你失望了,但是这些作业的目的是为了让你走出舒适区,让你(体会)阅读和创作各种各样的诗歌风格。

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Now, as you know, the paper was only the first half of the assignment… and I’m concerned about your ability to complete the second part on time considering how much time the first part took you.

    选项分析:这道题的答案是根据对全文的理解来选择的,对学生作业的两个部分都进行了讨论,在对话中部出现的句子也对此进行了说明,选C。A、B、D的内容在原文中都有出现,有一定干扰性,但是都属于细节,不能概括全文。
