经典古希腊神话中英双语24 - 伊克西翁

Ixion

In Thessaly there once lived a king by the name of Ixion.He was both handsome and mighty.He went to woo the beautiful maidenDiaand won her love,but her old father was most reluctant to part with his child.only when Ixionswore to let him have his royal treasure house did the father agree to give the king the hand of Dia inmarriage .Ixion took Dia home with him.But he was in no mood to keep his promise,for a long time passed and no treasure ever came to the old man.Impatient to have his promised wealth,the old father went to seeIxion and gave him no peace,until at last Ixion decided to get ridof him once and forall .Opening the door of his treasurehouse,he pushed the old man in and there burnt him to death.

Zeus was furious over the terrible deed.The frightened Ixion went up to heaven and asked the father of gods and men torid him of hisdishonesty .His prayers were granted,and hestayed happily for a while in the glorious home of the gods,There his lecherouseyesfell on Hera,whose radiant beautyfascinated his heart.Forgetting Dia at home,he planned for Hera to elope with him.Seeing all this,Zeus sent a cloud in the form of Hera to Ixion.The impiouskingmade love to the shade and made it the mother of the centaurs .The infuriated Zeuscast Ixion down toHades and had him bound to a wheel of fire,which,forever revolving,racked and tore his body in its unbroken swift revolutions.

以前有个叫伊克西翁的国王居住在色萨利。他既英俊潇洒又力大无穷。他向美丽的姑娘黛求婚。黛和他一见倾心,但是她的父亲却极不情愿离开他的孩子。最后只有当伊克西翁发誓让黛的父亲得到王室的金库时,这位父亲才答应把黛嫁给了国王。伊克西翁把黛领回家。但他却丝毫没有履行诺言的意思。很长时间过去了,老人没有得到半厘钱。于是老人迫不及待地去找伊克西翁,絮絮叨叨搅得他不得安宁。终于伊克西翁决定索性彻底除掉老头。他打开了金库,一把将老人推了进去,然后将他活活烧死。

宙斯为此勃然大怒。惊恐的伊克西翁跑到天堂,苦苦哀求众神和众人之父宽恕他的不诚实。他的请求得到了准许,于是他兴高采烈地在这辉煌璀璨的神的殿堂里呆了一会儿。他那双好色的眼睛盯上了赫拉,她那光彩照人的美丽使他神魂颠倒。他忘记了家里的黛。他盘算着要让赫位与他一道私奔。看到这些,宙斯把一朵赫拉形状的云送到了伊克西翁跟前。这位不虔诚的国王和这朵云做爱,并使她生下了半人半马的怪物。怒不可遏的宙斯把伊克西翁打下了地狱,将他绑在一个不停旋转的火轮上,这急速旋转的火轮永远折磨、撕扯着他的躯体。
