Passage 10                                                                                                               看点评

The old conditions of travel and the new conditions of most travel of today are exactly opposite.  For in old travel, as on horseback or on foot, you saw the country while you travelled. Many of your stopping places were for rest, or because night had fallen, and you could see nothing at night.  Under the old system, therefore, a wise traveller might keep moving from day to day, slowly, indeed, but seeing something all the time, and learning what the country was through which he passed by talk with the people.  But in the new system, he is shut up with his party and a good many other parties in a tight bus with glass windows, and whirled on through dust if it is dusty, or if it is rainy,  under arrangements which make it impossible to talk with the people of the country, and almost impossible to see what that country is.

    作者在对比两种条件(现在和过去)下的旅行时,分别是这样描述的:

过去seeing something all the time, and learning what the country was through which he passed by talk with the people

现在
he is shut up...in a tight bus with glass windows, and whirled on through dust if it is dusty, or if it is rainy,  under arrangements which make it impossible to talk with the people of the country, and almost impossible to see what that country is.

    作者的基本态度倾向已经跃然纸上,褒贬分明。而不是中立地对照,比较。
