形容才子不是常用“诗词歌赋,无所不晓;琴棋书画,无所不通”吗?他正是这样的人。

------摘自章诒和《往事并不如烟》

  这个实在翻译不出了!谁有办法试试?

受workout启发,我也试试。

When we mention a genius, we often say: "No matter poetry, lyrics, or songs, he's the best.  Music, Go chess, calligraphy and painting,  nothing he can't play." This man is the very genius.

Try for fun:
Don't we have words like "the commander of verses and lyrics, and the master of melodies and arts" for those wits? yes, and as are also for him.


Note: 才子跟天才(genius)似乎略有区别,中国传统意义上的才子多是不仅有才,而且风趣幽默,风流倜傥,所以才有“才子佳人”之说。 而天才的科学家可能会有点儿古板呢。 愚见,呵呵:)

谢谢讨论,

不一定啊,达芬奇,是典型的genius,古板吗?

说句题外的话,中国的“才子”是一种贬值的东西,有点歪才,甚至有本事欺世盗名的,都能和这个词儿沾点边。从这层意思上看,用genius 确实是高抬了。

my try:-)

If someone "knows everything about poem,songs and does extrodinary well in playing instruments, chess, and Chinese caligraphy and paintings". What would most of us call him is "a gifted scholar";  Well, he is one of them
