第一部分 TEXT

Perhaps the most extraordinary building of the nineteenth century was the Crystal Palace, which was built in Hyde Park for the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Crystal Palace was different from all other buildings in the world, for it was made of iron and glass. It was one of the biggest buildings of all time and a lot of people from many countries came to see it. A great many goods were sent to the exhibition from various parts of the world. There was also a great deal of machinery on display. The most wonderful piece of machinery on show was Nasmyth's steam hammer. Though in those days, travelling was not as easy as it is today, steam boats carried thousands of visitors across the Channel from Europe. On arriving in England, they were taken to the Crystal Palace by train. There were six million visitors in all, and the profits from the exhibition were used to build museums and colleges. Later, the Crystal Palace was moved to South London. It remained one of the most famous buildings in the world until it was burnt down in 1936.

参考译文

19世纪最不寻常的建筑也许要数水晶宫了,它是为1851年的"世界博览会"而建在海德公园的。这座水晶宫不同于世界上所有的其他建筑,因为它是用钢和玻璃建成的。它是有史以来最高大的建筑物之一,因此,人们从各个国家纷纷前来参观。大量的商品从世界各地运送到了博览会,参展的还有很多机器,其中最奇妙的是内史密斯的蒸汽锤。尽管在当时旅行不像现在这么容易,但汽船还是把成千上万的参观者从欧洲大陆送过了英吉利海峡。一到英国,火车就把他们送到了水晶宫。参观的人数总共是600万。博览会的赢利用来建造博物馆和高等学校。后来,"水晶宫"被移到了伦敦南部。在1936年被焚毁之前,它一直是世界上最著名的建筑物之一。

第三部分 LANGUAGE POINTS

1..which was built in Hyde Park for the Great Exhibition of 1851.
Hyde Park:海德公园:伦敦中西部的一个大公园,以其中众多的自由演说者而闻名
句型分析
这是一个非限定性关系从句,修饰逗号前的 the Crystal Palace;这个从句如果去掉并不影响主句的意思。

2、The Crystal Palace was different from all other buildings in the world, for it was made of iron and glass.
be different from:与...不同
be made of:由...构成

3、It was one of the biggest buildings of all time...
of all time表示"有史以来"、"空前的",常与形容词的最高级连用,表示范围
one of+最高级+复数名词结构的语气比直接用形容词最高级+名词结构要缓和些,不那么绝对

4、A great many goods were sent to the exhibition from various parts of the world.
a great many:数目非常巨大

5、There was also a great deal of machinery on display
The most wonderful piece of machinery on show..

on display/on show: 展出的;在句子中可以作状语、定语或表语等
machinery:"机器"、"机械装置"的总称,是集合名词,要与单数动词搭配。某个具体的机器可用 machine或者 a piece of machinery来表示

6、Though in those days, travelling was not as easy as it is today, steam boats carried thousands of visitors across the Channel from Europe.
=In those days, travelling was not as easy as it is today, but steam boats carried thousands of visitors across the Channel from Europe.
though:引导状语从句,though是表示转折的连词,接近汉语中的"虽然",不和but连用

7、On arriving in England, they were taken to the Crystal Palace by train.
on+v.ing:相当于一个时间状语,表示"一...就..."
=Soon after they arrived in England, they were taken to the Crystal Palace by train.
