The Wonderful City of Oz (чудесный город)




 

Even with eyes protected (даже с глазами защищенными) by the green spectacles, Dorothy and her friends were at first dazzled (ослеплены) by the brilliancy of the wonderful City (блеском замечательного √орода). The streets were lined (вдоль улиц были выстроены; to line Ч выстраивать) with beautiful houses all built of green marble (зеленого мрамора) and studded everywhere with sparkling emeralds (и усе€нными везде искр€щимис€ изумрудами). They walked over a pavement (прошли по мостовой) of the same green marble, and where the blocks were joined together (и, где камни были объединены вместе) were rows of emeralds (были р€ды изумрудов), set closely (установленные близко), and glittering in the brightness of the sun (сверкающие в блеске солнца). The window panes (оконные стекла) were of green glass; even the sky above the City had a green tint (оттенок), and the rays of the sun (лучи солнца = солнечные лучи) were green.

There were many people (много людей) Ч men, women, and children Ч walking about (прогуливающихс€), and these were all dressed in green clothes (одеты в зеленые одежды) and had greenish skins (зеленоватую кожу).

They looked at Dorothy and her strangely assorted company (и ее странно подобранную компанию; to assort Ч подбирать) with wondering eyes (изумленными глазами), and the children all ran away and hid behind their mothers (убегали и пр€тались за своими матер€ми) when they saw the Lion; but no one spoke to them (никто не заговаривал с ними).

Many shops stood in the street (много магазинов сто€ло = было на улице), and Dorothy saw that everything in them was green. Green candy and green pop corn were offered for sale (зеленые леденцы и зеленый попкорн /воздушна€ кукуруза/ предлагались дл€ продажи), as well as green shoes (равно как и зеленые туфли), green hats (шл€пы), and green clothes of all sorts (ткани всех видов). At one place a man was selling green lemonade (лимонад), and when the children bought it (покупали его; to buy Ч покупать) Dorothy could see that they paid for it with green pennies (платили за него зелеными пенни, пенсами).

There seemed to be no horses nor animals of any kind (ни лошадей, ни животных какого-либо вида = никаких); the men carried things around in little green carts (люди возили вещи /с собой/ в маленьких зеленых тележках; to carry around Ч носить с собой), which they pushed (толкали) before them. Everyone seemed happy and contented and prosperous (каждый казалс€ счастливым, довольным и процветающим).

The Guardian of the Gates led them through the streets (вел их через улицы = по улицам) until they came to a big building (к большому зданию), exactly in the middle of the City (точно посередине √орода), which was the Palace of Oz, the Great Wizard. There was a soldier (солдат) before the door, dressed in a green uniform (одетый в зеленую униформу) and wearing a long green beard (и Ђнос€щийї длинную зеленую бороду).

"Here are strangers (вот чужеземцы)," said the Guardian of the Gates to him, "and they demand (прос€т) to see the Great Oz."

"Step inside (ступайте внутрь)," answered the soldier, "and I will carry your message to him (отнесу ваше сообщение к нему)." So they passed through the Palace Gates and were led into a big room with a green carpet and lovely green furniture (с зеленым ковром и прелестной зеленой мебелью) set with emeralds (усе€нной изумрудами). The soldier made them all wipe their feet upon a green mat (заставил вытереть ноги о зеленый коврик) before entering this room (перед тем, как войти в комнату), and when they were seated (и когда они были усажены) he said politely (вежливо): "Please make yourselves comfortable (пожалуйста, располагайтесь поудобнее) while I go to the door of the Throne Room and tell Oz you are here." They had to wait a long time (ждать долгое врем€) before the soldier returned (вернулс€).

When, at last, he came back (он вернулс€), Dorothy asked: "Have you seen Oz?"

"Oh, no," returned the soldier; "I have never seen him.

Even with eyes protected by the green spectacles, Dorothy and her friends were at first dazzled by the brilliancy of the wonderful City. The streets were lined with beautiful houses all built of green marble and studded everywhere with sparkling emeralds. They walked over a pavement of the same green marble, and where the blocks were joined together were rows of emeralds, set closely, and glittering in the brightness of the sun. The window panes were of green glass; even the sky above the City had a green tint, and the rays of the sun were green.

There were many people Ч men, women, and children Ч walking about, and these were all dressed in green clothes and had greenish skins.

They looked at Dorothy and her strangely assorted company with wondering eyes, and the children all ran away and hid behind their mothers when they saw the Lion; but no one spoke to them.

Many shops stood in the street, and Dorothy saw that everything in them was green. Green candy and green pop corn were offered for sale, as well as green shoes, green hats, and green clothes of all sorts. At one place a man was selling green lemonade, and when the children bought it Dorothy could see that they paid for it with green pennies.

There seemed to be no horses nor animals of any kind; the men carried things around in little green carts, which they pushed before them. Everyone seemed happy and contented and prosperous.

The Guardian of the Gates led them through the streets until they came to a big building, exactly in the middle of the City, which was the Palace of Oz, the Great Wizard. There was a soldier before the door, dressed in a green uniform and wearing a long green beard.

"Here are strangers," said the Guardian of the Gates to him, "and they demand to see the Great Oz."

"Step inside," answered the soldier, "and I will carry your message to him." So they passed through the Palace Gates and were led into a big room with a green carpet and lovely green furniture set with emeralds. The soldier made them all wipe their feet upon a green mat before entering this room, and when they were seated he said politely: "Please make yourselves comfortable while I go to the door of the Throne Room and tell Oz you are here." They had to wait a long time before the soldier returned.

When, at last, he came back, Dorothy asked: "Have you seen Oz?"

"Oh, no," returned the soldier; "I have never seen him.

 

But I spoke to him (говорил с ним) as he sat behind his screen (в то врем€ как он сидел за своей ширмой) and gave him your message (передал ему ваше сообщение). He said he will grant you an audience (он подарит вам аудиенцию = удостоит вас аудиенции; to grant Ч даровать), if you so desire (если вы так желаете; to desire Ч жаждать, сильно желать); but each one of you must enter his presence alone (войти /в/ его присутствие один = предстать перед ним один), and he will admit (примет) but one each day (лишь по одному в Ђкаждыйї день). Therefore (поэтому), as you must remain (оставатьс€) in the Palace for several days (на несколько дней), I will have you shown to rooms (отведу вас в комнаты) where you may rest in comfort (отдохнуть в удобстве) after your journey."

"Thank you," replied the girl; "that is very kind of Oz (очень мило /с его стороны/)." The soldier now blew upon a green whistle (дунул в зеленый свисток; to blow), and at once a young girl, dressed in a pretty green silk gown (одета€ в красивое зеленое шелковое платье), entered the room. She had lovely green hair and green eyes, and she bowed low (поклонилась низко) before Dorothy as she said, "Follow me (следуйте за мной) and I will show you your room (покажу вам вашу комнату)." So Dorothy said good-bye to all her friends (попрощалась со своими друзь€ми) except Toto (за исключением “ото), and taking the dog in her arms (вз€в собаку на руки) followed the green girl through seven passages (через семь коридоров) and up three flights of stairs (и вверх на три пролета лестницы) until they came to a room at the front of the Palace. It was the sweetest little room in the world (милейша€ комната в мире), with a soft comfortable bed (с м€гкой удобной кроватью) that had sheets of green silk (простыни из зеленого шелка) and a green velvet counterpane (и зеленым вельветовым стеганым оде€лом). There was a tiny fountain (крошечный фонтан) in the middle of the room, that shot a spray of green perfume into the air (который выстреливал брызги зеленых духов в воздух), to fall back (чтобы они падали обратно) into a beautifully carved green marble basin (в зеленый мраморный бассейн с красовй резьбой; to carve Ч вырезать, высекать).

Beautiful green flowers stood in the windows (сто€ли на окнах), and there was a shelf (полка) with a row of little green books (с р€дом маленьких зеленых книг). When Dorothy had time to open these books (имела врем€ открыть эти книги) she found them full of queer green pictures (нашла их полными странных зеленых картинок) that made her laugh (заставили ее сме€тьс€ = рассмешили ее), they were so funny (они были такие смешные).

In a wardrobe (в гардеробе) were many green dresses, made of silk and satin and velvet; and all of them fitted Dorothy exactly (подходили ƒороти точно, идеально).

"Make yourself perfectly at home (чувствуй себ€ совершенно как дома)," said the green girl, "and if you wish for anything ring the bell (позвони в звонок; to ring Ч звонить). Oz will send for you tomorrow morning (пошлет за тобой завтра утром)." She left Dorothy alone (оставила ƒороти одну) and went back to the others (к другим). These she also led to rooms, and each one of them found himself lodged (поселенным; to lodge Ч поселить) in a very pleasant part of the Palace (в очень при€тной части ƒворца). Of course this politeness (конечно, эта учтивость) was wasted (была впустую потрачена; to waste Ч тратить впустую) on the Scarecrow; for when he found himself alone in his room he stood stupidly in one spot (сто€л глупо в одной точке, в одном месте), just within the doorway (как /раз/ в пределах дверного проема), to wait till morning (ждать до утра). It would not rest him to lie down (он не нашел бы отдохновени€ в лежачем положении), and he could not close his eyes (закрыть свои глаза); so he remained all night (так /что/ он осталс€ всю ночь) staring at a little spider (уставившись на маленького паука) which was weaving its web (который плел свою паутину) in a corner of the room (в углу комнаты), just as if it were not one of the most wonderful rooms in the world (как будто это не была одна из самых чудесных комнат в мире).

The Tin Woodman lay down on his bed from force of habit (из-за силы привычки), for he remembered (помнил) when he was made of flesh (/то врем€/, когда он был сделанным из плоти); but not being able to sleep (не будучи способным спать), he passed the night (провел ночь) moving his joints up and down (шевел€ своими суставами вверх и вниз) to make sure (/чтобы/ убедитьс€) they kept in good working order (что они сохран€ютс€ в хорошем рабочем состо€нии). The Lion would have preferred a bed of dried leaves in the forest (предпочел /бы/ кровать из сухих листьев в лесу), and did not like being shut up in a room (и ему не нравилось быть запертым); but he had too much sense (слишком много разума) to let this worry him (чтобы позволить этому беспокоить его), so he sprang upon the bed (запрыгнул на кровать) and rolled himself up like a cat (каталс€, как кот) and purred himself asleep in a minute (убаюкал мурчанием сам себ€ за одну минуту; to purr Ч мурчать).

The next morning (на следующее утро), after breakfast (после завтрака), the green maiden (горнична€) came to fetch Dorothy (пришла за ƒороти; to fetch Ч приглашать, забирать), and she dressed her in one of the prettiest gowns, made of green brocaded satin (из парчового сатина). Dorothy put on a green silk apron (одела зеленый шелковый передник) and tied (пов€зала) a green brocade around Toto's neck, and they started for the Throne Room of the Great Oz.

First they came to a great hall (зал) in which were many ladies and gentlemen of the court (леди и джентльменов двора = придворных леди и джентльменов), all dressed in rich costumes (богатые нар€ды). These people had nothing to do (не имели другого дела) but talk to each other (как разговаривать каждый с другим = друг с другом), but they always came to wait outside (ждать снаружи) the Throne Room every morning, although they were never permitted to see Oz (им никогда не разрешалось увидеть ќза). As Dorothy entered (вошла) they looked at her curiously (посмотрели на нее с любопытством), and one of them whispered (прошептал): "Are you really going to look upon the face of Oz the Terrible?"

"Of course," answered the girl, "if he will see me."

"Oh, he will see you," said the soldier (солдат) who had taken her message to the Wizard, "although he does not like (хот€ ему не нравитс€) to have people ask to see him. Indeed (в самом деле), at first he was angry (сначала он рассердилс€) and said I should send you back (послать обратно) where you came from. Then he asked me what you looked like, and when I mentioned your silver shoes (упом€нул /о/ твоих серебр€ных туфл€х) he was very much interested (он очень сильно заинтересовалс€). At last (наконец) I told him about the mark upon your forehead (о метке на твоем лбу), and he decided (решил) he would admit you to his presence (допустит теб€ к себе на прием)." Just then a bell rang (звонок прозвенел), and the green girl said to Dorothy, "That is the signal (это сигнал). You must go into the Throne Room alone (одна)." She opened a little door and Dorothy walked boldly through (прошло смело) and found herself in a wonderful place. It was a big, round room (кругла€ комната) with a high arched roof (с высокой арочной крышей), and the walls and ceiling and floor were covered (и стены, и потолок, и пол были покрыты) with large emeralds set closely together (вставленными плотно друг к другу). In the center of the roof was a great light (в центре крыши был большой свет, большое освещение), as bright as the sun (€ркое, как солнце, which made the emeralds sparkle (искритьс€) in a wonderful manner (чудесным образом).

But I spoke to him as he sat behind his screen and gave him your message. He said he will grant you an audience, if you so desire; but each one of you must enter his presence alone, and he will admit but one each day. Therefore, as you must remain in the Palace for several days, I will have you shown to rooms where you may rest in comfort after your journey."

"Thank you," replied the girl; "that is very kind of Oz." The soldier now blew upon a green whistle, and at once a young girl, dressed in a pretty green silk gown, entered the room. She had lovely green hair and green eyes, and she bowed low before Dorothy as she said, "Follow me and I will show you your room."

It would not rest him to lie down, and he could not close his eyes; so he remained all night staring at a little spider which was weaving its web in a corner of the room, just as if it were not one of the most wonderful rooms in the world.

The next morning, after breakfast, the green maiden came to fetch Dorothy, and she dressed her in one of the prettiest gowns, made of green brocaded satin. Dorothy put on a green silk apron and tied a green ribbon around Toto's neck, and they started for the Throne Room of the Great Oz.

First they came to a great hall in which were many ladies and gentlemen of the court, all dressed in rich costumes. These people had nothing to do but talk to each other, but they always came to wait outside the Throne Room every morning, although they were never permitted to see Oz. As Dorothy entered they looked at her curiously, and one of them whispered: "Are you really going to look upon the face of Oz the Terrible?"

At last I told him about the mark upon your forehead, and he decided he would admit you to his presence." Just then a bell rang, and the green girl said to Dorothy, "That is the signal. You must go into the Throne Room alone." She opened a little door and Dorothy walked boldly through and found herself in a wonderful place. It was a big, round room with a high arched roof, and the walls and ceiling and floor were covered with large emeralds set closely together. In the center of the roof was a great light, as bright as the sun, which made the emeralds sparkle in a wonderful manner.

 

But what interested Dorothy most (но, что заинтересовало больше всего) was the big throne of green marble (большой трон из зеленого мрамора) that stood in the middle of the room (сто€л в середине комнаты). It was shaped like a chair (имел форму стула) and sparkled with gems (искрилс€ драгоценными камн€ми), as did everything else. In the center of the chair was an enormous Head (в центре стула была громадна€ √олова), without a body to support it (без тела /чтобы/ поддерживать ее) or any arms or legs whatever (или каких бы то ни было рук или ног). There was no hair upon this head (не было волос на голове), but it had eyes and a nose and mouth (глаза, и нос, и рот), and was much bigger (намного больше) than the head of the biggest giant (чем голова самого большого гиганта).

As Dorothy gazed upon this (вгл€дывалась /долго/ в это) in wonder and fear (в удивлении и страхе), the eyes turned slowly (повернулись медленно) and looked at her sharply and steadily (посмотрели на нее пр€мо и ровно /не морга€/). Then the mouth moved (задвигалс€), and Dorothy heard a voice say (услышала /как/ голос говорит): "I am Oz, the Great and Terrible. Who are you, and why do you seek me (ищешь мен€)?" It was not such an awful voice (не такой ужасный голос) as she had expected to come (какой она ожидала, что раздастс€) from the big Head; so she took courage (набралась храбрости) and answered (ответила): "I am Dorothy, the Small and Meek (ћаленька€ и  ротка€) I have come to you for help (за помощью)." The eyes looked at her thoughtfully for a full minute (смотрели на нее задумчиво в течение целой: Ђполнойї минуты).

Then said the voice: "Where did you get the silver shoes (где ты достала серебр€ные туфли)?"

"I got them from the Wicked Witch of the East, when my house fell on her and killed her (когда мой дом упал на нее и убил ее)," she replied (ответила).

"Where did you get the mark upon your forehead (где ты получила отметину на твоем лбе)?" continued the voice (продолжал голос).

"That is where the Good Witch of the North kissed me (поцеловала мен€) when she bade me good-bye (когда она попрощалась со мной) and sent me to you (послала мен€ к вам)," said the girl.

Again (снова) the eyes looked at her sharply, and they saw (увидели) she was telling the truth (говорила правду). Then Oz asked, "What do you wish me to do (что ты желаешь /чтобы/ € сделал)?"

"Send me back to Kansas, where my Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are," she answered earnestly (насто€тельно). "I don't like your country (мне не нравитс€ ваша страна), although (хот€) it is so beautiful (така€ красива€). And I am sure Aunt Em will be dreadfully worried over my being away so long (будет ужасно волноватьс€ из-за моего отсутстви€ так долго)." The eyes winked three times (моргнули три раза), and then they turned up to the ceiling (к потолку) and down to the floor (к полу) and rolled around so queerly (завращались так странно) that they seemed to see every part of the room (казалось, вид€т каждую часть комнаты). And at last they looked at Dorothy again.

"Why should I do this for you?" asked Oz.

"Because you are strong (потому что вы сильный) and I am weak (слаба€); because you are a Great Wizard and I am only a little girl (только маленька€ девочка)."

"But you were strong enough to kill the Wicked Witch of the East," said Oz.

"That just happened (это просто случилось = случайно произошло)," returned Dorothy simply (возразила ƒороти просто); "I could not help it (€ не могла помочь этому = € ничего не могла с этим поделать)."

"Well (хорошо)," said the Head, "I will give you my answer (дам тебе мой ответ). You have no right to expect me (не имеешь права ожидать /от/ мен€) to send you back to Kansas unless you do something for me in return (в ответ, взамен). In this country everyone must pay for everything he gets (каждый должен платить за все, что получает). If you wish me to use my magic power (чтобы € использовал магическую силу) to send you home again (чтобы послать теб€ домой снова = обратно) you must do something for me first (сначала). Help me and I will help you."

"What must I do?" asked the girl.

"Kill the Wicked Witch of the West," answered Oz.

"But I cannot!" exclaimed Dorothy (воскликнула), greatly surprised (сильно удивленна€).

"You killed the Witch of the East and you wear the silver shoes, which bear a powerful charm (которые несут /в себе/ могущественное заклинание). There is now but one Wicked Witch left in all this land (во всей этой земле), and when you can tell me she is dead (она мертва), I will send you back to Kansas Ч but not before (но не раньше)." The little girl began to weep (начала плакать), she was so much disappointed (она была так сильно разочарована); and the eyes winked again and looked upon her anxiously (тревожно), as if the Great Oz felt that she could help him if she would (как будто он чувствовал, что она сможет помочь ему, если захочет).

"You killed the Witch of the East and you wear the silver shoes, which bear a powerful charm. There is now but one Wicked Witch left in all this land, and when you can tell me she is dead I will send you back to Kansas Ч but not before." The little girl began to weep, she was so much disappointed; and the eyes winked again and looked upon her anxiously, as if the Great Oz felt that she could help him if she would.

 

"I never killed anything (никогда /не/ убивала что-либо), willingly (добровольно)," she sobbed (всхлипывала). "Even if I wanted to (даже если /бы/ € хотела), how could I kill the Wicked Witch? If you, who are Great and Terrible, cannot kill her yourself, how do you expect me to do it (ожидаете /от/ мен€ сделать это)?"

"I do not know (не знаю)," said the Head (сказала √олова); "but that is my answer (ответ), and until the Wicked Witch dies (умрет) you will not see your uncle and aunt again (ты не увидишь своих д€дю и тетю снова). Remember (помни) that the Witch is Wicked Ч tremendously Wicked (ужасно «ла€) Ч and ought (должна) to be killed. Now go (теперь иди), and do not ask (не проси) to see me again until you have done your task (сделаешь = выполнишь задачу)." Sorrowfully (горестно) Dorothy left the Throne Room (покинула “ронную  омнату) and went back (вернулась) where the Lion and the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman were waiting to hear (ждали услышать) what Oz had said to her. "There is no hope for me (нет надежды дл€ мен€)," she said sadly (грустно), "for Oz will not send me home until I have killed the Wicked Witch of the West; and that I can never do." Her friends were sorry (ее друзь€ сожалели), but could do nothing to help her; so Dorothy went to her own room (в свою собственную комнату) and lay down on the bed (легла на кровать).

The next morning (/на/ следующее утро) the soldier with the green whiskers came to the Scarecrow (солдат с зелеными бакенбардами пришел к —трашиле) and said: "Come with me (пойдем со мной), for Oz has sent for you (послал за тобой)." So the Scarecrow followed him (последовал /за/ ним) and was admitted (прин€т) into the great Throne Room, where he saw (увидел), sitting in the emerald throne (сид€щего на изумрудном троне), a most lovely Lady (одну из самых красивых Ћеди). She was dressed in green silk gauze (одета в зеленый газ) and wore upon her flowing green locks a crown of jewels (носила на своих ниспадающих зеленых локонах корону из драгоценностей). Growing from her shoulders were wings (растущие от ее плеч были крыль€), gorgeous in color (великолепные по цвету) and so light (и такие легкие) that they fluttered (трепетали) if the slightest breath of air reached them (если легчайшее дуновение воздуха достигало их).

When the Scarecrow had bowed (поклонилс€), as prettily (так красиво) as his straw stuffing would let him (как его солома, наполн€юща€ /его/, позвол€ла ему), before this beautiful creature (перед этим красивым созданием), she looked upon him sweetly (нежно), and said: "I am Oz, the Great and Terrible. Who are you, and why do you seek me (ищешь мен€)?" Now the Scarecrow, who had expected (ожидал) to see the great Head Dorothy had told him of (рассказала ему), was much astonished (сильно изумлен); but he answered her bravely (смело).

"I am only a Scarecrow, stuffed with straw. Therefore I have no brains (поэтому у мен€ нет мозгов), and I come to you praying (мол€, умол€€) that you will put brains (положите мозги) in my head instead of straw (вместо соломы), so that I may become (стать) as much a man as any other in your dominions (в ваших владени€х)."

"Why should I do this for you?" asked the Lady.

"Because you are wise and powerful (мудрый и могущественный), and no one else (никто еще = больше) can help me," answered the Scarecrow.

"I never grant favors without some return (никогда /не/ жалую помощь без какого-либо возмещени€)," said Oz; "but this much I will promise (но это € пообещаю). If you will kill for me the Wicked Witch of the West, I will bestow upon you (дарую тебе; to bestow Ч даровать) a great many brains, and such good brains that you will be the wisest man (наимудрейшим человеком) in all the Land of Oz."

"I thought (думал) you asked Dorothy to kill the Witch," said the Scarecrow, in surprise (в удивлении).

"So I did. I don't care (€ не беспокоюсь = мне все равно) who kills her. But until she is dead (мертва) I will not grant your wish (желание). Now go (теперь иди), and do not seek me again until you have earned the brains (пока не заработаешь мозги) you so greatly desire (которые так сильно желаешь)." The Scarecrow went sorrowfully back to his friends (отправилс€ печально: Ђполный заботыї к своим друзь€м) and told them what Oz had said; and Dorothy was surprised to find (была удивлена найти = обнаружить) that the Great Wizard was not a Head, as she had seen him, but a lovely Lady.

"All the same (все равно)," said the Scarecrow, "she needs a heart as much as the Tin Woodman." On the next morning the soldier with the green whiskers came to the Tin Woodman and said: "Oz has sent for you. Follow me." So the Tin Woodman followed him and came to the great Throne Room. He did not know whether he would find Oz a lovely Lady or a Head, but he hoped (наде€лс€) it would be the lovely Lady. "For," he said to himself, "if it is the head, I am sure I shall not be given a heart (мне не дадут сердца), since a head has no heart of its own (раз у головы нет своего сердца) and therefore cannot feel for me (и потому она не может сочувствовать мне). But if it is the lovely Lady I shall beg hard for a heart (попрошу настойчиво о сердце; to beg for smth Ч просить о чем-либо), for all ladies are themselves said to be kindly hearted (поскольку леди, говор€т, сами добросердечны).

 

meek [mi:k] bestow [bı'stəu] dominion [də'mınjən] gauze [go:z]

 

 

"I never killed anything, willingly," she sobbed. "Even if I wanted to, how could I kill the Wicked Witch?If you, who are Great and Terrible, cannot kill her yourself, how do you expect me to do it?"

"I do not know," said the Head; "but that is my answer, and until the Wicked Witch dies you will not see your uncle and aunt again. Remember that the Witch is Wicked Ч tremendously Wicked Ч and ought to be killed. Now go, and do not ask to see me again until you have done your task." Sorrowfully Dorothy left the Throne Room and went back where the Lion and the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman were waiting to hear what Oz had said to her. "There is no hope for me," she said sadly, "for Oz will not send me home until I have killed the Wicked Witch of the West; and that I can never do." Her friends were sorry, but could do nothing to help her; so Dorothy went to her own room and lay down on the bed and cried herself to sleep.

The next morning the soldier with the green whiskers came to the Scarecrow and said: "Come with me, for Oz has sent for you." So the Scarecrow followed him and was admitted into the great Throne Room, where he saw, sitting in the emerald throne, a most lovely Lady. She was dressed in green silk gauze and wore upon her flowing green locks a crown of jewels. Growing from her shoulders were wings, gorgeous in color and so light that they fluttered if the slightest breath of air reached them.

When the Scarecrow had bowed, as prettily as his straw stuffing would let him, before this beautiful creature, she looked upon him sweetly, and said: "I am Oz, the Great and Terrible. Who are you, and why do you seek me?" Now the Scarecrow, who had expected to see the great Head Dorothy had told him of, was much astonished; but he answered her bravely.

"I am only a Scarecrow, stuffed with straw. Therefore I have no brains, and I come to you praying that you will put brains in my head instead of straw, so that I may become as much a man as any other in your dominions."

"Why should I do this for you?" asked the Lady.

"Because you are wise and powerful, and no one else can help me," answered the Scarecrow.

"I never grant favors without some return," said Oz; "but this much I will promise. If you will kill for me the Wicked Witch of the West, I will bestow upon you a great many brains, and such good brains that you will be the wisest man in all the Land of Oz."

"I thought you asked Dorothy to kill the Witch," said the Scarecrow, in surprise.

"So I did. I don't care who kills her. But until she is dead I will not grant your wish. Now go, and do not seek me again until you have earned the brains you so greatly desire." The Scarecrow went sorrowfully back to his friends and told them what Oz had said; and Dorothy was surprised to find that the Great Wizard was not a Head, as she had seen him, but a lovely Lady.

"All the same," said the Scarecrow, "she needs a heart as much as the Tin Woodman." On the next morning the soldier with the green whiskers came to the Tin Woodman and said: "Oz has sent for you. Follow me." So the Tin Woodman followed him and came to the great Throne Room. He did not know whether he would find Oz a lovely Lady or a Head, but he hoped it would be the lovely Lady. "For," he said to himself, "if it is the head, I am sure I shall not be given a heart, since a head has no heart of its own and therefore cannot feel for me. But if it is the lovely Lady I shall beg hard for a heart, for all ladies are themselves said to be kindly hearted.

 

But when the Woodman entered (вошел) the great Throne Room he saw (увидел) neither the Head nor the Lady (ниЕ ниЕ), for Oz had taken the shape of a most terrible Beast (вз€л = прин€л форму одного из самых ужасных «верей). It was nearly as big as an elephant (почти таким /же/ большим, как слон), and the green throne seemed hardly strong enough (казалс€ едва сильным достаточно) to hold its weight (держать его вес). The Beast had a head like that of a rhinoceros (носорога), only there were five eyes in its face (только было п€ть глаз на его лице). There were five long arms growing out of its body (п€ть длинных рук, растущих из его тела), and it also had five long, slim legs (тонких ног). Thick, woolly hair (густые, курчавые волосы) covered every part of it (покрывали каждую часть его), and a more dreadful-looking monster could not be imagined (более ужасно выгл€д€щий зверь не мог быть представлен = невозможно было вообразитьЕ). It was fortunate (это было удачным) the Tin Woodman had no heart at that moment (в тот момент), for it would have beat loud and fast from terror (ибо оно /бы/ стучало громко и быстро от ужаса). But being only tin (будучи всего лишь железом), the Woodman was not at all afraid (вовсе не испуган), although he was much disappointed (хот€ он был сильно разочарован).

"I am Oz, the Great and Terrible," spoke (говорил) the Beast, in a voice (голосом) that was one great roar (одним большим ревом). "Who are you, and why do you seek me (ищешь мен€)?"

"I am a Woodman, and made of tin. Therefore (поэтому) I have no heart, and cannot love (не могу любить). I pray you to give me a heart (молю теб€ дать мне сердце) that I may be as other men are."

"Why should I do this?" demanded the Beast (спросил).

"Because I ask it (потому что € прошу /об/ этом), and you alone can grant my request (и вы один можете удовлетворить мой запрос)," answered the Woodman (ответил).

Oz gave a low growl at this (издал низкий рык на это), but said, gruffly (мрачно): "If you indeed desire a heart (в самом деле, желаешь сердце), you must earn it (должен заработать его)."

"How?" asked the Woodman.

"Help Dorothy to kill (помоги ƒороти убить) the Wicked Witch of the West," replied the Beast (ответил). "When the Witch is dead (мертва), come to me (приходи ко мне), and I will then give you the biggest and kindest and most loving heart (дам тебе самое большое, и самое доброе, и самое люб€щее сердце) in all the Land of Oz." So the Tin Woodman was forced to return sorrowfully (принужден вернутьс€ печальным, озабоченным) to his friends and tell them of the terrible Beast he had seen.

They all wondered greatly (подивились сильно) at the many forms the Great Wizard could take upon himself (мог прин€ть на себ€), and the Lion said: "If he is a Beast when I go to see him, I shall roar my loudest (зарычу моим самым громким /рыком/ = зарычу изо всех сил), and so frighten him (испугать его) that he will grant all I ask (пожалует все, что € попрошу). And if he is the lovely Lady, I shall pretend to spring upon her (сделаю вид, что хочу прыгнуть на нее; to pretend Ч притвор€тьс€, делать вид), and so compel her (заставить ее) to do my bidding (выполнить мою просьбу). And if he is the great Head, he will be at my mercy (у моего милосерди€ = в моей власти); for I will roll this head all about the room (катать эту голову /по/ всей комнате) until he promises to give us what we desire (пока не пообещает дать нам то, что мы желаем). So be of good cheer (так что будьте в хорошем настроении), my friends, for all will yet be well (так как все будет еще хорошо)." The next morning the soldier with the green whiskers led the Lion (привел) to the great Throne Room and bade him enter the presence of Oz (пригласил его войти /в/ присутствие ќза).

The Lion at once (сразу же) passed through the door (прошел через дверь), and glancing around saw (и, смотр€ вокруг, увидел), to his surprise, that before the throne was a Ball of Fire, so fierce and glowing (такой жаркий и сверкающий) he could scarcely bear (едва выносить) to gaze upon it (смотреть на него). His first thought (его первой мыслью) was that Oz had by accident (случайно) caught on fire and was burning up (Ђпопалс€ на огоньї = загорелс€ и горел); but when he tried to go nearer (попыталс€ подойти ближе), the heat was so intense (жар был столь сильным) that it singed his whiskers (опалил усы; to singe Ч опал€ть), and he crept back tremblingly (отполз тр€с€сь) to a spot nearer the door (к месту ближе к двери).

Then a low, quiet voice came from the Ball of Fire, and these were the words it spoke: "I am Oz, the Great and Terrible. Who are you, and why do you seek me?" And the Lion answered, "I am a Cowardly Lion, afraid of everything.

His first thought was that Oz had by accident caught on fire and was burning up; but when he tried to go nearer, the heat was so intense that it singed his whiskers, and he crept back tremblingly to a spot nearer the door.

Then a low, quiet voice came from the Ball of Fire, and these were the words it spoke: "I am Oz, the Great and Terrible. Who are you, and why do you seek me?" And the Lion answered, "I am a Cowardly Lion, afraid of everything.

 

I came to you to beg (пришел к вам просить) that you give me courage (чтобы вы дали мне храбрости), so that in reality (так чтобы в реальности = и на самом деле) I may become (стать) the King of Beasts, as men call me (как люди зовут мен€)."

"Why should I give you courage?" demanded Oz (спросил).

"Because of all Wizards you are the greatest (потому что из всех ¬олшебников вы величайший), and alone have power (и один имеет силу) to grant my request (удовлетворить мою просьбу)," answered the Lion (ответил).

The Ball of Fire burned fiercely for a time (горел жарко в течение времени), and the voice said (голос сказал), "Bring me proof (принеси мне доказательство) that the Wicked Witch is dead (мертва), and that moment (и /в/ тот момент) I will give you courage. But as long as the Witch lives (но как долго, как ¬олшебница живет = до тех пор, пока ¬олшебница жива), you must remain a coward (тебе придетс€ оставатьс€ трусом)." The Lion was angry at this speech (зол из-за этой речи), but could say nothing in reply (в ответ), and while he stood silently (сто€л молча) gazing at the Ball of Fire (/пристально/ смотр€ на шар ќгн€) it became so furiously hot (стал таким гор€чим) that he turned tail (что он поджал хвост) and rushed from the room (устремилс€ из комнаты).

He was glad to find his friends (рад найти своих друзей) waiting for him (ожидающих его), and told them of his terrible interview with the Wizard (рассказал им о своем ужасном интервью с ¬олшебником).

"What shall we do now?" asked Dorothy sadly (грустно).

"There is only one thing (одна вещь) we can do," returned the Lion (ответил), "and that is to go to the land of the Winkies, seek out the Wicked Witch (найти «лую ¬олшебницу), and destroy her (уничтожить: Ђразрушитьї)."

"But suppose (полагаю) we cannot?" said the girl.

"Then I shall never have courage," declared the Lion (за€вил).

"And I shall never have brains," added the Scarecrow (добавил).

"And I shall never have a heart," spoke the Tin of Woodman (проговорил).

"And I shall never see Aunt Em and Uncle Henry," said Dorothy, beginning to cry (начина€ плакать).

"Be careful (будьте внимательными)!" cried the green girl. "The tears will fall on your green silk gown (слезы упадут на твое зеленое шелковое платье) and spot it (зап€тнают его; to spot Ч зап€тнать)." So Dorothy dried her eyes (высушила свои глаза) and said, "I suppose we must try it (попробовать это /сделать/); but I am sure (уверена) I do not want to kill anybody (не хочу убивать кого-либо), even to see Aunt Em again (даже /чтобы/ увидеть “етю Ём)."

"I will go with you; but I'm too much of a coward (но € слишком много от труса = во мне слишком много трусости) to kill the Witch," said the Lion.

"I will go too," declared the Scarecrow; "but I shall not be of much help to you (много помощи), I am such a fool (такой глупец)."

"I haven't the heart to harm even a Witch (у мен€ нет сердца, чтобы навредить даже ¬олшебнице /игра слов: to have a heart to do smth Ч иметь смелость сделать что-либо/)," remarked the Tin Woodman (заметил); "but if you go I certainly (конечно) shall go with you." Therefore it was decided (поэтому было решено) to start upon their journey the next morning (начать их путешествие следующим утром), and the Woodman sharpened his axe (заострил свой топор) on a green grindstone (о зеленое точило) and had all his joints properly oiled (все свои шарниры правильно смазанными). The Scarecrow stuffed himself with fresh straw (набил себ€ /самого/ свежей соломой) and Dorothy put new paint on his eyes (положила новую краску на его глаза) that he might see better (видеть лучше). The green girl, who was very kind to them (добра к ним), filled Dorothy's basket with good things to eat (наполнила корзину ƒороти хорошими вещами /чтобы/ поесть), and fastened a little bell around Toto's neck with a green ribbon (прив€зала маленький колокольчик вокруг шеи “ото зеленой ленточкой).

They went to bed quite early (пошли спать довольно рано) and slept soundly until daylight (спали крепко до дневного света), when they were awakened (разбужены) by the crowing of a green cock (кукареканьем зеленого петуха; to crow Ч кукарекать) that lived in the back yard of the Palace (жил на заднем дворе ƒворца), and the cackling of a hen (кудахтаньем курицы; to cackle Ч кудахтать) that had laid a green egg (котора€ положила = снесла зеленое €йцо).
