第一回: Chunk 2
Tags: 红楼梦， 第一回， 古文， classic
故曰"甄士隐"云云. 但书中所记何事何人?自又云:"今 风尘碌碌, 一事无成,忽念及当日所有之女子,一一细考较去,觉其行止见识,皆出于 我之上
Therefore 甄士隐 tells that story.
But which events take place and what persons are involved in the book? I myself say again: Today, weary from a long journey nothing is completed. I suddenly remember that day when there was that woman, her behaviour and knowledge both surpass mine.
Therefore (just learned that 故 is "because of" here and not story!) "甄士隐" tells (云云)
But in the book which events take place and what persons are involved?
I myself say again:
In the present time (今 is not "now" here), weary from a long journey (风尘碌碌 - abstract sense?).
Nothing is completed (lit.: not one thing is finished)
I suddenly remember (念及) that day (当日) when there was a woman.
When I think more precicely (一一+细 - finer/better, 考较 - think/ponder/evaluate) 去 than all 一一 (?)
Then I find (觉) her (其) behaviour (行止) and knowledge (见识)
both (皆 ) surpass 出于+之上 me/mine (我)
