There was a second thread to his story, that of the English schoolmaster's friendship with the German boy which remained 'suspended in an atmosphere of semi-Platonic sentimentality'.
这个故事还有第二条线索,就是英国男教师与德国男孩之间的半柏拉图式的友谊。
This for Joan represented a quality of self-restraint that deserved admiration, but Alan, who had often teased Fred in terms rather like these, would probably have taken a different view.
这在琼看来,代表了一种对自我束缚的赞扬,但是在艾伦看来,这会带来一些其它的想法。
The book was saved from the obvious danger, one that Evelyn Waugh had mocked in Put Out More Flags, by the stringency and sophistication with which it examined the contradictions.
这本书避免了这种明显的危险,而伊夫琳·沃则在《再举起几面旗》中陷入了这种危险。
The personal realities were ever questioning, and questioned by, a political background which included the late-1930s Nazi propaganda about boy-corrupting Jews and Catholic clergy.
这种个人现实,一直在被质疑,被1930年后期纳粹关于男孩被犹太人教唆而堕落的政治背景所质疑。
On this level it served Alan as a way of saying that of his 'tendencies' could not be separated from his place in society, nor regarded as peripheral to his own freedom and consistency of mind.
从这个角度来说,这给艾伦提供了另一条路,这说明他的性取向不能脱离他的社会角色,但也不能无视个人的自由和自我思想。
Although he had dropped away from the direct cryptanalytic work, Alan remained within the Bletchley fold, and was to be seen in the cafeteria off duty.
虽然艾伦已经不直接参与密码分析工作了,但他目前仍然留在布莱切利,就跟他以前不值班时待在茶餐厅的状态差不多。
Conversation at these times often revolved round mathematical and logical puzzles,
他这段时期的谈话,主要是关于数学和逻辑问题,
and Alan was particularly good at taking some quite elementary problem and showing how some point of principle lay behind it—or conversely, illustrating some mathematical argument with an everyday application.
艾伦特别擅长谈论一些非常本质的问题,并看到问题的背后隐藏着什么道理,或者归纳一些日常应用中的数学原理。
It was part of his special concern for connecting the abstract and the concrete, as well as a pleasure in demystifying the higher mathematician's preserve.
他对抽象与实体之间的联系非常感兴趣,还喜欢对那些高级数学家的工作进行"去神秘化"。
It might be wallpaper patterns for an argument about symmetries.
他会从壁纸的图案出发,来讨论对称性,
His 'paper tape' in Computable Numbers had the same flavour, bringing an 'abstruse branch of logic' down to earth with a bump.
他的《可计算数》中的纸带,也是这样一种风格,把高深的逻辑讲成实际的东西
