提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

The first objects, he says, that assume a distinctive presence before me as I look far back into the blank of my infancy, are my mother with a pretty hair and youthful shape and Paggotty with no shape at all, and eyes so dark that they seemed to darken the whole neighborhood in her face. That’s that thing of children remembering things much, much larger than they actual were in objective relativity, eye so dark that seemed to darken the whole neighborhood in her face, and checks and arms are so hard and red that I wonder the birds didn’t peck her in preference to apples, again everything is simple at this stage. Dickens, the great wordsmith, the literary showman, is actually putting everything back into his box of tricks and shutting that box tight. So everything is in monosyllables. Checks and arms are so hard and red and then a little image the bird pecking at her checks and preference to apples. Of course, that’s a image that a child would understand the bird pecking, he wouldn’t have anything more sophisticated to compare P’s checks to.
But David’s idyll shatters as his mother remarries to a cold and heartless man called Mr. Murdstone, and now David can only see harshness wherever he gazes.
I could not look at her, I couldn’t look at him, I knew quite well that he was looking at us both, and I turned to the window and looked out there at some shrubs that were drooping their heads in the cold.
The young Copperfield is the camera in this picture and everything is perceiving, everything were reading about is done as he perceived through his eyes, I turned to the window, and that thing of childhood where as you grow up if you received bad news, or if there has been a sudden dramatic moment, you instantly recall the first image you saw at the time, an image that no matter how insignificant it appears, still burn there at you heart with significance. This the whole process in these first few chapters of David Copperfield.
