13. The Rescue (Избавление)


The Cowardly Lion was much pleased to hear (Трусливый Лев был очень рад услышать) that the Wicked Witch had been melted by a bucket of water (что Злая Ведьма была растоплена ведром воды), and Dorothy at once unlocked the gate of his prison and set him free (и Дороти тут же отперла дверь его тюрьмы и освободила его). They went in together to the castle (они вместе вошли в замок), where Dorothy's first act was to call all the Winkies together (где Дороти первым делом созвала всех Винки; act — дело, поступок; to call together — собирать, созывать) and tell them that they were no longer slaves (и сказала им, что они больше не были рабами).

There was great rejoicing among the yellow Winkies (/наступило/ великое ликование среди желтокожих Винки), for they had been made to work hard during many years for the Wicked Witch (потому что их заставляли тяжело работать в течение многих лет на Злую Ведьму), who had always treated them with great cruelty (которая всегда обращалась с ними с большой = особой жестокостью; cruel — жестокий). They kept this day as a holiday, then and ever after (с тех пор: «тогда и навсегда после», они отечали этот день как праздник; to keep — держать, хранить; соблюдать, отмечать /памятные даты/), and spent the time in feasting and dancing (и проводили время, /устраивая/ пиршества и танцы; to spend — тратить; проводить /время/; feast — пир, празднество, банкет; to feast — пировать, праздновать).

The Cowardly Lion was much pleased to hear that the Wicked Witch had been melted by a bucket of water, and Dorothy at once unlocked the gate of his prison and set him free. They went in together to the castle, where Dorothy's first act was to call all the Winkies together and tell them that they were no longer slaves.

There was great rejoicing among the yellow Winkies, for they had been made to work hard during many years for the Wicked Witch, who had always treated them with great cruelty. They kept this day as a holiday, then and ever after, and spent the time in feasting and dancing.


"If our friends, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, were only with us (если бы только наши друзья, Страшила и Железный Дровосек, были с нами)," said the Lion, "I should be quite happy (я был бы совершенно счастлив)."

"Don't you suppose we could rescue them (а ты не думаешь, что мы могли бы спасти их)?" asked the girl anxiously (спросила девочка с беспокойством = беспокоясь о них и желая их спасти; anxious — озабоченный, беспокоящийся; сильно желающий: I am anxious to see him — мне очень хочется повидать его).

"We can try (мы можем попытаться)," answered the Lion.


scarecrow ['skeqkrqu], woodman ['wudmqn], lion ['laIqn], rescue ['reskju:], anxious ['xNkSqs]


"If our friends, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, were only with us," said the Lion, "I should be quite happy."

"Don't you suppose we could rescue them?" asked the girl anxiously.

"We can try," answered the Lion.


So they called the yellow Winkies and asked them if they would help to rescue their friends (тогда они позвали желтокожих Винки и спросили у них, помогут ли они спасти их друзей), and the Winkies said that they would be delighted to do all in their power for Dorothy (и Винки сказали, что они были бы рады сделать все, что в их силах, для Дороти; delight — восторг, восхищение, услада; delighted — восхищенный; довольный, радостный), who had set them free from bondage (которая освободила их от рабского гнета). So she chose a number of the Winkies (итак, она выбрала нескольких Винки; number — число, количество; некоторое количество) who looked as if they knew the most (которые выглядели так, словно знали больше /других/), and they all started away (и они все вместе отправились в путь: «прочь»). They traveled that day and part of the next (они шли /в течение/ всего того дня и части следующего) until they came to the rocky plain (пока они не пришли к каменистой равнине; rock — скала, утес; камень, булыжник; rocky — скалистый, каменистый) where the Tin Woodman lay, all battered and bent (где лежал Железный Дровосек, весь разбитый и погнутый). His axe was near him (его топор лежал рядом с ним), but the blade was rusted and the handle broken off short (но лезвие его заржавело, и рукоятка сломалась; to break off — отламывать; short — резко, круто; коротко).

So they called the yellow Winkies and asked them if they would help to rescue their friends, and the Winkies said that they would be delighted to do all in their power for Dorothy, who had set them free from bondage. So she chose a number of the Winkies who looked as if they knew the most, and they all started away. They traveled that day and part of the next until they came to the rocky plain where the Tin Woodman lay, all battered and bent. His axe was near him, but the blade was rusted and the handle broken off short.


The Winkies lifted him tenderly in their arms (Винки бережно подняли его на руки; tender — нежный, мягкий; заботливый), and carried him back to the Yellow Castle again (и отнесли его назад, в Желтый Замок), Dorothy shedding a few tears by the way (по пути Дороти уронила несколько слезинок; to shed — проливать, лить / слезы, кровь и т. п. /; by the way — по пути, по дороге) at the sad plight of her old friend (из-за печального состояния своего старого друга; plight — состояние, положение / обыкн . плохое, трудное /), and the Lion looking sober and sorry (а Лев выглядел серьезным и огорченным; sober — непьющий, трезвый; сдержанный, спокойный, серьезный). When they reached the castle Dorothy said to the Winkies (когда они добрались до замка, Дороти сказала Винки = спросила у Винки): "Are any of your people tinsmiths (есть ли среди вашего народа жестянщики; tin — жесть; smith — кузнец; tinsmith — лудильщик, паяльщик, жестянщик)?"

"Oh, yes. Some of us are very good tinsmiths (некоторые из нас очень хорошие жестянщики)," they told her.


tenderly ['tendqlI], plight [plaIt], sober ['squbq], tinsmith ['tInsmIT]


The Winkies lifted him tenderly in their arms, and carried him back to the Yellow Castle again, Dorothy shedding a few tears by the way at the sad plight of her old friend, and the Lion looking sober and sorry. When they reached the castle Dorothy said to the Winkies: "Are any of your people tinsmiths?"

"Oh, yes. Some of us are very good tinsmiths," they told her.


"Then bring them to me (тогда приведите их ко мне)," she said. And when the tinsmiths came (и когда жестянщики пришли), bringing with them all their tools in baskets (принеся с собой все свои инструменты в корзинах), she inquired (она спросила), "Can you straighten out those dents in the Tin Woodman (можете ли вы выпрямить /все/ те вмятины в Железном Дровосеке), and bend him back into shape again (и снова вернуть ему его форму: «и снова согнуть его в форму»; to bend — сгибаться, гнуться, изгибать), and solder him together where he is broken (и спаять его /в тех местах/, где он сломан; to solder — паять, спаивать)?"

The tinsmiths looked the Woodman over carefully (жестянщики внимательно оглядели Дровосека) and then answered that they thought they could mend him so (и затем ответили, что они думают, что они смогут починить его таким образом) he would be as good as ever (что он будет таким же, как и прежде).


tool [tu:l], straighten [streItn], solder ['sOldq]


"Then bring them to me," she said. And when the tinsmiths came, bringing with them all their tools in baskets, she inquired, "Can you straighten out those dents in the Tin Woodman, and bend him back into shape again, and solder him together where he is broken?" The tinsmiths looked the Woodman over carefully and then answered that they thought they could mend him so he would be as good as ever.


So they set to work in one of the big yellow rooms of the castle (итак, они принялись за работу в одной из больших желтых комнат замка) and worked for three days and four nights (и работали три дня и четыре ночи), hammering (громко стуча молотками; hammer — молот / тж . кузнечный /, кувалда; to hammer — бить, ударять / молотом, кувалдой и т . п ./) and twisting (и скручивая) and bending (и сгибая) and soldering (и паяя) and polishing (и полируя) and pounding (и нанося удары; to pound — бить, колотить) at the legs and body and head of the Tin Woodman (по ногам, телу, и голове Железного Дровосека), until at last he was straightened out into his old form (пока, наконец, он не был выпрямлен /и не обрел/ свою старую форму), and his joints worked as well as ever (и его шарниры не стали работать так же хорошо, как всегда). To be sure, there were several patches on him (конечно, на нем было несколько заплаток; patch — клочок, лоскут, обрывок; заплата), but the tinsmiths did a good job (но жестянщики отлично поработали: «сделали хорошую работу»; good job — хорошо выполненная работа), and as the Woodman was not a vain man he did not mind the patches at all (и, так как Дровосек не был тщеславным человеком, заплаты его вовсе не волновали; vain — напрасный, бесполезный; тщеславный, самодовольный).

So they set to work in one of the big yellow rooms of the castle and worked for three days and four nights, hammering and twisting and bending and soldering and polishing and pounding at the legs and body and head of the Tin Woodman, until at last he was straightened out into his old form, and his joints worked as well as ever. To be sure, there were several patches on him, but the tinsmiths did a good job, and as the Woodman was not a vain man he did not mind the patches at all.


When, at last, he walked into Dorothy's room and thanked her for rescuing him (когда, наконец, он вошел в комнату Дороти и поблагодарил ее за свое спасение), he was so pleased that he wept tears of joy (он был так рад, что заплакал слезами радости; to weep — плакать), and Dorothy had to wipe every tear carefully from his face with her apron (и Дороти пришлось тщательно вытереть каждую слезинку с его лица своим передником), so his joints would not be rusted (чтобы его шарниры не заржавели). At the same time her own tears fell thick and fast (в то же самое время ее собственные слезы падали густо и быстро = обильно) at the joy of meeting her old friend again (от радости при встрече со своим старым другом), and these tears did not need to be wiped away (и эти слезы не надо было вытирать: «не нуждались в том, чтобы быть вытертыми»). As for the Lion, he wiped his eyes so often with the tip of his tail (что касается Льва, то он так часто вытирал свои глаза кончиком своего хвоста) that it became quite wet (что тот стал совершенно мокрым), and he was obliged to go out into the courtyard (и он = лев был вынужден выйти во двор) and hold it in the sun till it dried (и подержать его = хвост на солнце до тех пор, пока тот не высох).


pleased [pli:zd], wept [wept], wipe [waIp], tear [tIq], obliged [q'blaIdZd]


When, at last, he walked into Dorothy's room and thanked her for rescuing him, he was so pleased that he wept tears of joy, and Dorothy had to wipe every tear carefully from his face with her apron, so his joints would not be rusted. At the same time her own tears fell thick and fast at the joy of meeting her old friend again, and these tears did not need to be wiped away. As for the Lion, he wiped his eyes so often with the tip of his tail that it became quite wet, and he was obliged to go out into the courtyard and hold it in the sun till it dried.


"If we only had the Scarecrow with us again (если бы только Страшила снова был с нами)," said the Tin Woodman (сказал Железный Дровосек), when Dorothy had finished telling him everything that had happened (когда Дороти закончила рассказывать ему обо всем, что произошло), "I should be quite happy (то я был бы совершенно счастлив)."

"We must try to find him (мы должны попытаться найти его)," said the girl.

So she called the Winkies to help her (тогда она позвала Винки на помощь), and they walked all that day and part of the next until they came to the tall tree (и они шли весь тот день и часть следующего, пока они не пришли к тому самому высокому дереву) in the branches of which the Winged Monkeys had tossed the scarecrow’s clothes (на ветви которого Крылатые Обезьяны забросили одежду Страшилы).

"If we only had the Scarecrow with us again," said the Tin Woodman, when Dorothy had finished telling him everything that had happened, "I should be quite happy."

So she called the Winkies to help her, and they walked all that day and part of the next until they came to the tall tree in the branches of which the Winged Monkeys had tossed the Scarecrow's clothes.


It was a very tall tree (это было очень высокое дерево), and the trunk was so smooth that no one could climb it (и ствол его был таким гладким, что никто не мог взобраться на него); but the Woodman said at once (а Дровосек тут же сказал), "I'll chop it down (я срублю его), and then we can get the Scarecrow's clothes (и тогда мы сможем достать одежду Страшилы)."

Now while the tinsmiths had been at work mending the Woodman himself (итак, пока жестянщики были заняты работой, починяя самого Дровосека), another of the Winkies, who was a goldsmith (другой Винки, который был золотых дел мастером; goldsmith — золотых дел мастер, ювелир), had made an axe-handle of solid gold (сделал рукоятку топора из чистого золота; solid — твердый; чистый, без примесей) and fitted it to the Woodman's axe, instead of the old broken handle (и приладил ее к топору Дровосека, вместо старой сломанной рукоятки; to fit — быть впору, быть в самый раз; подгонять, прилаживать). Others polished the blade until all the rust was removed (другие полировали лезвие до тех пор, пока вся ржавчина не была удалена; to remove — удалять) and it glistened like burnished silver (и оно не заблестело, словно отполированное серебро; to burnish — чистить, полировать /специальным инструментом для полировки/).

It was a very tall tree, and the trunk was so smooth that no one could climb it; but the Woodman said at once, "I'll chop it down, and then we can get the Scarecrow's clothes." Now while the tinsmiths had been at work mending the Woodman himself, another of the Winkies, who was a goldsmith, had made an axe-handle of solid gold and fitted it to the Woodman's axe, instead of the old broken handle. Others polished the blade until all the rust was removed and it glistened like burnished silver.


As soon as he had spoken, the Tin Woodman began to chop (как только он это сказал, Железный Дровосек начал рубить /дерево/), and in a short time the tree fell over with a crash (и вскоре: «через короткий промежуток времени» дерево с треском свалилось), whereupon the Scarecrow's clothes fell out of the branches and rolled off on the ground (после чего одежда Страшилы попадала с веток и скатились на землю; to roll off — упасть, скатиться / с чего -либо/).

Dorothy picked them up (Дороти подобрала ее) and had the Winkies carry them back to the castle (и приказала Винки отнести ее обратно в замок), where they were stuffed with nice, clean straw (где она была набита прекрасной чистой соломой); and behold (и вот, смотри; to behold — видеть, замечать, узреть)! here was the Scarecrow, as good as ever (вот /перед ними/ стоял Страшила, лучше, чем прежде; as good as ever — не хуже, чем раньше: «такой же хороший, как всегда»), thanking them over and over again for saving him (и благодарил их снова и снова за свое спасение).

Dorothy picked them up and had the Winkies carry them back to the castle, where they were stuffed with nice, clean straw; and behold! here was the Scarecrow, as good as ever, thanking them over and over again for saving him.


Now that they were reunited (теперь, когда они снова были вместе; to unite — объединять, соединять; to reunite — воссоединяться), Dorothy and her friends spent a few happy days at the Yellow Castle (Дороти и ее друзья провели несколько счастливых дней в Желтом Замке), where they found everything they needed to make them comfortable (где они нашли все, что им было нужно, чтобы чувствовать себя удобно/комфортно).

But one day the girl thought of Aunt Em, and said (но однажды девочка подумала о Тетушке Эм и сказала), "We must go back to Oz, and claim his promise (мы должны вернуться к Озу и потребовать /выполнения/ его обещания; to claim — требовать, предъявлять требования)."

"Yes," said the Woodman, "at last I shall get my heart (наконец я получу свое сердце)."

"And I shall get my brains (а я получу свои мозги)," added the Scarecrow joyfully (добавил радостно Страшила).

"And I shall get my courage (а я получу свою смелость)," said the Lion thoughtfully (задумчиво сказал Лев).

"And I shall get back to Kansas (а я вернусь в Канзас)," cried Dorothy, clapping her hands (закричала Дороти, хлопая в ладоши; to clap — хлопать).

Now that they were reunited, Dorothy and her friends spent a few happy days at the Yellow Castle, where they found everything they needed to make them comfortable.

But one day the girl thought of Aunt Em, and said, "We must go back to Oz, and claim his promise."

"Yes," said the Woodman, "at last I shall get my heart."

"And I shall get my brains," added the Scarecrow joyfully.

"And I shall get my courage," said the Lion thoughtfully.

"And I shall get back to Kansas," cried Dorothy, clapping her hands.


"Oh, let us start for the Emerald City tomorrow (о, давайте завтра отправимся в Изумрудный Город)!"

This they decided to do (так они решили и поступить). The next day they called the Winkies together and bade them good-bye (на следующий день они собрали всех Винки и попрощались с ними). The Winkies were sorry to have them go (Винки жалели о том, что они уходят), and they had grown so fond of the Tin Woodman (и они так полюбили железного Дровосека) that they begged him to stay and rule over them and the Yellow Land of the West (что они умоляли его остаться и править ими, и /всей/ Желтой Страной Запада).

"Oh, let us start for the Emerald City tomorrow!" This they decided to do. The next day they called the Winkies together and bade them good-bye. The Winkies were sorry to have them go, and they had grown so fond of the Tin Woodman that they begged him to stay and rule over them and the Yellow Land of the West.


Finding they were determined to go (обнаружив, что они были полны решимости идти; determined — решительный, твердый), the Winkies gave Toto and the Lion each a golden collar (Винки подарили Тото и Льву по золотому ошейнику); and to Dorothy they presented a beautiful bracelet studded with diamonds (Дороти они подарили красивый браслет, усыпанный бриллиантами; to present — преподносить, дарить); and to the Scarecrow they gave a gold-headed walking stick (а Страшиле они подарили посох с золотым набалдашником; head — голова; набалдашник / трости /; walking stick — трость, палка : « палка для ходьбы »), to keep him from stumbling (чтобы он не спотыкался: «чтобы удерживать его от спотыкания»); and to the Tin Woodman they offered a silver oil-can, inlaid with gold and set with precious jewels (а Железному Дровосеку они предподнесли серебряную масленку, инкрустированную золотом и усыпанную драгоценными камнями; inlay — инкрустация, мозаика; to inlay — вкладывать, вставлять; инкрустировать; precious — драгоценный, большой ценности; jewel — драгоценный камень).

Every one of the travelers made the Winkies a pretty speech in return (каждый из путешественников произнес Винки в ответ по прекрасной речи), and all shook hands with them until their arms ached (и все пожимали им руки до тех пор, пока они не заболели; to shake — трясти, встряхивать; пожимать / руку /; to ache — болеть, испытывать боль).


collar ['kOlq], present [prI'zent], bracelet ['breIslIt], walking-stick ['wO:kINstIk], inlaid ["In'leId], precious ['preSqs], speech [spi:tS], ache [eIk]


Finding they were determined to go, the Winkies gave Toto and the Lion each a golden collar; and to Dorothy they presented a beautiful bracelet studded with diamonds; and to the Scarecrow they gave a gold-headed walking stick, to keep him from stumbling; and to the Tin Woodman they offered a silver oil-can, inlaid with gold and set with precious jewels.

Every one of the travelers made the Winkies a pretty speech in return, and all shook hands with them until their arms ached.


Dorothy went to the Witch's cupboard to fill her basket with food for the journey (Дороти пошла к ведьминому буфету, чтобы наполнить свою корзину едой для путешествия), and there she saw the Golden Cap (и там она увидела Золотую Шапку). She tried it on her own head (она примерила ее на свою голову; to try on — примерять / платье и т. п. /) and found that it fitted her exactly (и обнаружила, что она ей точно впору). She did not know anything about the charm of the Golden Cap (она ничего не знала о магической силе Золотой Шапки), but she saw that it was pretty (но она видела, что та была /такой/ красивой), so she made up her mind to wear it (поэтому она решила надеть ее) and carry her sunbonnet in the basket (а шляпу от солнца понести в своей корзине).

Then, being prepared for the journey, they all started for the Emerald City (после этого, подготовившись к путешествию, они все отправились в Изумрудный Город); and the Winkies gave them three cheers (и Винки три раза прокричали им «ура»; cheer — настроение; одобрительное, приветственное восклицание; to give a cheer — сказать что-то ободряющее; cheers! — за ваше здоровье! /тост/; ура!) and many good wishes to carry with them (и высказали множество добрых пожеланий им в дорогу: «чтобы они несли /их/ с собой»).

"We must try to find him (мы должны постараться найти его)," said the girl.
