2017GRE填空模拟题及答案:近期文学批评

  Folmer’s book on Edith Wharton seems far removed from recent trends in literary criticism; this need not to be a fault, except that, in its title and introduction, the book (i)___ to be conversant with contemporary discourse in the field, but in its actual analysis of Wharton’s work, it is marked by a very (ii)___ approach.

  Blank (i)

  Blank (i)

  A. designs

  D. old-fashioned

  B. fails

  E. timely

  C. purports

  F. arcane

  选 CD

  翻译:F 关于 EW 的论著,看起来与近期文学批评的趋势大相径庭;这当然不必然有问题,只是在标题和引言中,作者声称熟知该领域当前的讨论,但其对 W 作品的实际分析,显然采用了过时的方法。

  也许选项问的是两个细节,但经过前面的练习,你应该在十秒钟内判断出,题目的本质是考察作者对 F 的书的态度。怎么推测作者如何看待 F?

  …;this need not to be a fault, except that , …

  第一分句陈述的内容(分号前),并不必然是个缺点,除了 …

  根据朴素的人类预感,作者接下来要说真正的缺点了对吧?

  所谓方法或经验,说白了真的很基本。GRE 填空考的是逻辑与常识,实在没必要发明一套新的理论或方法来解释,否则就有故意装逼的嫌疑了。

  removed 遥远的,隔代的

  far removed

  【柯林斯高阶】If you say that an idea or situation is far removed from something, you mean that it is very different from it.

  He found it hard to concentrate on conversation so far removed from his present preoccupations.

  The country had witnessed scenes of tumult not far removed from civil war.

  His style could scarcely be further removed from that of his predecessor.

  purport 声称(实际上并非如所述的情况),企图、意在

  conversant 精通的,知悉的

  old-fashioned 老派的,守旧的,过时的

  timely 及时的,适时的,合时宜的

  arcane 晦涩难懂的,神秘的

  第一空选 design 的同学注意了,如果你认为本书被 设计来 / 创作成 to be conversant,形式应该是 be designed to be conversant …,tada 。

  Edith Wharton 以前在 17-85 出现过,还有印象吗?

  在自传中,EW试图把自己描述成一个通过调和了生活中诸多矛盾而达到和谐圆融境界的女人。(tk01 11-85)
