Kleine Fabel (A Little Fable) by F Kafka

Post by Aszev » Mon 30 Jan 2012, 05:53

Original version:
:deu: „Ach“, sagte die Maus, „die Welt wird enger mit jedem Tag. Zuerst war sie so breit, daß ich Angst hatte, ich lief weiter und war glücklich, daß ich endlich rechts und links in der Ferne Mauern sah, aber diese langen Mauern eilen so schnell aufeinander zu, daß ich schon im letzten Zimmer bin, und dort im Winkel steht die Falle, in die ich laufe.“ – „Du mußt nur die Laufrichtung ändern“, sagte die Katze und fraß sie.

English translation:
:eng: "Alas", said the mouse, "the whole world is growing smaller every day. At the beginning it was so big that I was afraid, I kept running and running, and I was glad when I saw walls far away to the right and left, but these long walls have narrowed so quickly that I am in the last chamber already, and there in the corner stands the trap that I must run into." "You only need to change your direction," said the cat, and ate it up.

I remember this was a circulating translation challenge on the zbb irc channel like 6-7 years ago. I came to think about it and became nostalgic [:)]

This was actually a fable we discussed in school :D
"Alas", said the mouse, "the whole world is growing smaller every day. At the beginning it was so big that I was afraid, I kept running and running, and I was glad when I saw walls far away to the right and left, but these long walls have narrowed so quickly that I am in the last chamber already, and there in the corner stands the trap that I must run into."

“啊,”老鼠说,“这世界一天比一天变得狭窄。当初它宽广得让我害怕,我跑呀跑,终于看到远处左右有了墙,我真高兴,可这些长长的墙如此迅速地彼此靠拢,我已来到了最后一个房间,而那边角落里有一个陷阱,我正朝它跑进去。”

“你只须改变奔跑的方向。”猫说,一口吞吃了它。

"Ah," said the mouse, "the world has become narrower every day."

当初它宽广得让我害怕,我跑呀跑,终于看到远处左右有了墙,我真高兴,

At first it was so broad that I was afraid, I ran and ran, and finally saw walls in the distance left and right, I was so happy,

这些长长的墙如此迅速地彼此靠拢,我已来到了最后一个房间,而那边角落里有一个陷阱,我正朝它跑进去。”

These long walls moved so quickly toward each other that I had come to the last room, and there was a trap in the corner where I was running in."
