Andy

Red=Friend

Bogs=Enemy

Poster and Hammer

? :These walls are kind of funny like that. First you hate them, then you get used to them. Enough time passed, get so you depend on them. That's institutionalized. 这些墙很有趣。刚入狱的时候,你痛恨周围 的高墙;慢慢地,你习惯了生活在其中;最终你 会发现自己不得不依靠它而生存。这就叫 体制化

? In 1949, while helping to repair the prison roof, Andy overhears the cruel chief guard Byron complaining about taxes on a forthcoming inheritance, and informs him about a financial loophole. After another vicious [?vi??s](残酷的)attarctted by the Sisters nearly kills Andy, Bogs is beaten and crippled by Byron. Bogs is sent to another prison and Andy is not attacked again. Later, under the pretense of a cell inspection, Boss (Norton ) meets with Andy and reassigns[,ri:?'sain] 再分配 ? him to the prison library, to assist elderly inmate Brooks; this is a pretext [?pri:tekst] 借口 for Andy to manage financial duties for the prison. His advice and expertise [,eksp?:?ti:z] 专业知识 are soon sought by other guards at Shawshank and from nearby prisons. Andy begins writing weekly letters to the state government for funds to improve the decrepit library.

Byron Hadley
? chief of the guards. Hadley is a sadistic guard who thinks nothing of delivering beatings to the inmates to keep them in line.

Warden Samuel Norton (boss)
? He is well versed in the Bible and presents himself as a pious, devout Christian and reform-minded administrator, but his actions reveal him to be corrupt, ruthless, and remorseless.

Three part of life
Work (library and serve)

Write letters to government

Do the secret job

? In 1954, Brooks is freed on parole after 50 years in prison, but unable to adjust to the outside world, he hangs himself. After he is released, Andy explains that he holds onto hope as something that the prison cannot take from him, but Red dismisses the idea. In 1963, Boss begins using prison labor for public works, undercutting the cost of skilled labor by skimming the profits and receiving kickbacks. He has Andy launder(洗黑钱) the money using the fake name "Randall Stevens".

Brooks Hatlen
? prison librarian and one of the oldest convicts at Shawshank having been in prison since 1905. But he suicided when he get “Free”.

? I guess it comes down to a simple choice: get busy living or get busy dying. ? 生命可以归结为一种简单的选择:要 么忙于生存,要么赶着去死。

? In 1965, Tommy is arrested for robbery. He befriends Andy and Red, and Andy assists him in getting his Study diploma. In 1966, after hearing the details of Andy?s crime, Tommy reveals揭示 that an inmate at another prison claimed responsibility for an same murder, suggesting Andy?s innocence. Andy approaches Boss with this information, but the warden看守人 refuses to listen. Boss places Andy in solitary confinement 单独拘禁and has Tommy murdered by Hadley under the fake of an escape attempt.

Tommy Williams
? a young convict whose experiences in a previous prison hold the truth about Andy's innocence

? After Andy is released from solitary he tells Red of his dream of living in Special Place, a Mexican Pacific coastal town, and setting up a hotel with boat rides for his customers. While Red shrugs耸肩 it off as unrealistic, Andy instructs him, should he ever be freed, to visit a specific field near Buxton to retrieve取回 a package. After learning that Andy has acquired a length of rope, Red fears that he is planning to commit suicide that night.

? Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. ? 希望是件危险的事。希望能叫人发疯

? Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. ? 希望是美好的,也许是人间至善,而 美好的事物永不消逝。

? The next day at roll call点名, Andy?s cell is empty. The angry Boss throws one of Andy?s rocks at the poster . The rock tears through the poster, revealing a tunnel in the wall that Andy dug with his rock hammer over the previous two decades. The previous night, Andy escaped through the tunnel and the prison?s sewage [?sju:id?] 下水道 pipe with Boss? ledger [?led??] 总账, containing details of the money laundering. While guards search for him the following morning, Andy, posing as Randall Stevens, visits nearly a dozen banks to withdraw the laundered money. Finally, he sends the ledger and evidence of the corruption and murders at Shawshank to a local newspaper. The police arrive at Shawshank and take Hadley into custody, but Norton commits suicide to avoid arrest.

? His judgement cometh and that right soon. 主的审判迅速降临

? After serving 40 years, Red receives parole [p??r?ul]使假释出狱 . He struggles to adapt to life outside prison and fears he never will. Remembering his promise to Andy, he visits Buxton and finds a box containing money and a letter from Andy, asking him to come to Special Place. Red violates违反 his parole and travels to Texas [?teks?s]德克萨斯州 to cross the border to Mexico, admitting he finally feels hope. On a beach, he finds Andy, and the two friends are happily reunited [?ri:ju:?naitid] 重聚.

? Red narrating: I have to remind myself that some birds don?t mean to be caged . Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they?re gone. I guess I just miss my friend. red旁白:我得 经常同自己说,有些鸟儿是关不住的。他们的羽 毛太鲜亮了。当它们飞走的时候,你心底里知道 把他们关起来是一种罪恶,你会因此而振奋。不 过,他们一走,你住的地方也就更加灰暗空虚。我 觉得我真是怀念我的朋友。

? I find I'm so excited. I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope. ? 我发现自己是如此的激动,以至于不能静静地坐下来 思考。我想只有那些重获自由即将踏上新征程的人们才能 感受到这种即将揭开未来神秘面纱的激动心情。我希望跨 越千山万水握住朋友的手,我希望太平洋的海水如同梦中 的一样蓝:我希望……
