  作者对某人/某事的态度

  解题技巧

  作者对于文中人或物的感情色彩是阅读理解题目的常考点。作者的态度或褒或贬或中立,或关心或不在意,或喜欢或厌恶,或坚信或怀疑。在以第一人称行文的文章中,应留意那些可以直接表示作者态度的动词(doubt,appreciate,concern等)。在以一种客观论述的手法行文的文章中,应特别注意形容词和副词等暗含作者态度的词汇。一些特殊句式(祈使句,疑问句,感叹句)本身也包含作者的态度。

  练习:

  As soon as it was revealed that a reporter for Progressive magazine had discovered how to make a hydrogen bomb, a group of firearm fans formed the National Hydrogen Bomb Association, and they are now lobbying against any legislation to stop Americans from owning one.

  “The Constitution,” said the association’s spokesman, “gives everyone the right to own arms. It doesn’t spell out what kind of arms. But since anyone can now make a hydrogen bomb, the public should be able to buy it to protect themselves.”

  “Don't’ you think it’s dangerous to have one in the house, particularly where there are children around?”

  “The National Hydrogen Bomb Association hopes to educate people in the safe handling of this type of weapon. We are instructing owners to keep the bomb in a locked cabinet and the fuse separately in a drawer.

  “Some people consider the hydrogen bomb a very fatal weapon which could kill somebody.”

  The spokesman said, “Hydrogen bombs don’t kill people ----people kill people. The bomb is for self-protection and it also has a deterrent effect. If somebody knows you have a nuclear weapon in your house, they’re going to think twice about breaking in.”

  “But those who want to ban the bomb for American citizens claim that if you have one locked in the cabinet, with the fuse in a drawer, you would never be able to assemble it in time to stop an intruder.”

  “Another argument against allowing people to own a bomb is that at the moment it it very expensive to build one. So what your association is backing is a program which would allow the middle and upper classes to acquire a bomb while poor people will be left defenseless with just handguns.”

  Q:From the tone of the passage we know that the author is ________

  A. doubtful about the necessity of keeping H-bombs at home for safety

  B. unhappy with those who vote against the ownership of H-bombs

  C. not serious about the private ownership of H-bombs

  D. concerned about the spread of unclear weapons.

  选D。本文大篇幅文字都是引用正反两方的观点,没表示作者自己的态度,只能说明作者对此事是关注的。
