THE Mole крот моль родинка had been working very hard all the morning, spring-cleaning генеральна уборка his little home. First with brooms метла веник, then with dusters тряпка дял пыли; then on ladders and steps and chairs, with a brush and a pail of whitewash(ведро побелки); till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of whitewash all over his black fur МЕХ, and an aching back and wearyусталые руки arms. Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating проникающий even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine божественный discontent недовольство and longing сильное желание. It was small wonder чудо изумление, then, that he suddenly flung downсбросить на землю his brush on the floor, said `Bother!' хлопоты(черт возьми) and `O blow!' and also `Hang spring-cleaning!' and bolted out И НЕ ДАЛ ВОЙТИ В ДОМ of the house without even waiting to put onНАДЕВАТЬ his coat. Something up aboveнад головой was calling him imperiouslyНадменно, and he made for the steep little tunnel which answered in his case в его случае to the gravelled покрытый гравием carriage-drive дорога для экипажей в парке owned by animals whose residences местожительство are nearer to the sun and air. So he scrapedскоблит and scratched царапать, and scrabbled скрестись and scroogedскряга????? and then he scrooged again and scrabbledцараптся скоблить and scratchedчесал and scrapedцарапать скоблить, working busily with his little paws and бормоча muttering to himself, `Up we go! Up we go!' till at last, popдо последнего хлопка удара! his snout морда рыло came out into the sunlight, and he found himself rolling in the warm grass of a great meadow. луг, луговина; низина

`This is fine!' he said to himself. `This is better than whitewashing!' The sunshine struck hot ударяло жаром on his fur, soft breezes caressed ласкало his heated brow нагретый лоб , and after the seclusion of the cellarage удинения в погреб he had lived in so long the carol of happy birds fell on his dulled hearingзатупившиеся(глухой слух) almost like a shoutкрик . Jumping off вскочить all his four legs at onceодновременно сразу же , in the joyрадости of livingжизни and the delightудовольствие of spring without its cleaning, he pursued гнался за им)( his way across the meadow till he reached the hedgeограды on the further side.дальней стороны

`Hold upостановись!' said an elderly пожилой rabbit at the gapв просвете. `Sixpence шестипенсовик for the privilege привелегию

of passing by the private road!' He was bowled over сбить in an instant на мгновение by the impatient нетерпеливым and contemptuousпрезрительным Mole, who trotted along бежал трусцой the side of the hedge chaffingподшучивая the other rabbits as they peeped hurriedly from their holes заглядывали неторопливо в норы to see what the row скандал was about. `Onion-sauceлековый соусНАХАЛЬСТВО ! Onion-sauce!' he remarked насмехаясь jeeringly, and was gone before they could think of a тщательно thoroughly satisfactory reply. Then they all started grumbling ворчать at each other. `How stupid you are! Why didn't you tell him -- -- ' `Well, why didn't you say -- -- ' `You might have reminded him -- -- ' and so on и так делаее, in the usual way; but, of course, it was thenтогда much too late, as is always the case.

It all seemed too good to be true. Hither and thither и туда и сюда,повсюду through the meadows he rambled бродить блуждать busilyделовито , along the hedgerowsживой изгороди , across the copses молодой лесок, поросль, finding everywhere birds building, flowers budding почкованание бутонизация, leaves тяга ?толкание thrusting -- everything happy, and progressive, and occupiedзанято. And instead of having an uneasy conscience совесть pricking покалывая him and whispering `whitewash!' he somehow как то could only feel how jolly восхительно it was to be the only idleбесполезный dog among all these busy citizens. After all, the best part of a holiday is perhaps возможно not so much to be restingотдыхающий yourself, as to see all the other fellowsтоварищи busy working.

He thought his happinessудача was complete when, as he meandered извивался aimlessly бесцельно along, suddenly he stood by the edge of a full-fedжирной river. Never in his life had he seen a river before -- this sleekгладкий , sinuous волнистый , full-bodied полное animal, chasingпреследуя and chuckling смеясь, gripping захватывающий things with a gurgle булькать and leaving оставлять them with a laugh смех, to fling itself on накидывать fresh playmates партнера that shook напугало шокировало themselves free, and were caught схвачены and held обнимать again.

The idea will be seen differently by different readers as we tend to ascribe different value to the form of the text and its style.)


Task 2


1) Explain how the Toad is characterized in the extracts below 1) as a personality, what his friends think about him; 2) define the method of characterization in each case as direct or indirect:

A) `Why, certainly,' said the good-natured Rat, jumping to his feet and dismissing poetry from his mind for the day. `Get the boat out, and we'll paddle up there at once. It's never the wrong time to call on Toad. Early or late he's always the same fellow. Always good-tempered, always glad to see you, always sorry when you go!'

B) `He is indeed the best of animals,' replied Rat. `So simple, so good-natured, and so affectionate. Perhaps he's not very clever -- we can't all be geniuses; and it may be that he is both boastful and conceited. But he has got some great qualities, has Toady.'

C) The Rat looked around him. `I understand,' said he. `Boating is played out. He's tired of it, and done with it. I wonder what new fad he has taken up now? Come along and let's look him up. We shall hear all about it quite soon enough.'

D) They disembarked, and strolled across the gay flower-decked lawns in search of Toad, whom they presently happened upon resting in a wicker garden-chair, with a pre-occupied expression of face, and a large map spread out on his knees.

E) `Hooray!' he (Toad) cried, jumping up on seeing them, `this is splendid!' He shook the paws of both of them warmly, never waiting for an introduction to the Mole. `How kind of you!' he went on, dancing round them. `I was just going to send a boat down the river for you, Ratty, with strict orders that you were to be fetched up here at once, whatever you were doing. I want you badly -- both of you.


2) Explain how in the extracts at hand the attitude of friends to Mr. Toad is expressed.
