2 = 16 scores A (2012重庆A) One of my wonderful memories is about a Christmas gift. Unlike other gifts, it came without wrap (包装). On September 11th, 1958, Mum gave birth to Richard. After she brought him home from hospital, she put him in my lap, saying, “I promised you a gift, and here it is.” What an honor! I turned four a month earlier and none of my friends had such a baby doll of their own. I played with it day and night. I sang to it. I told it stories. I told it over and over how much I loved it! One morning, however, I found its bed empty. My doll was gone! I cried for it. Mum wept and told me that the poor little thing had been sent to a hospital. It had a fever. For several days, I heard Mum and Dad whispering such words as “hopeless”, “pitiful”, and “dying”, which sounded ominous. Christmas was coming. “Don’t expect any presents this year,” Dad said, pointing at the socks I hung in the living room. “If your baby brother lives, that’ll be Christmas enough.” As he spoke, his eyes filled with tears. I’d never seen him cry before. The phone rang early on Christmas morning. Dad jumped out of bed to answer it. From my bedroom I heard him say, “What? He’s all right?” He hung up and shouted upstairs. “The hospital said we can bring Richard home!” “Thank God!” I heard Mum cry. From the upstairs window, I watched my parents rush out to the car. I had never seen them so happy. And I was also full of joy. What a wonderful day! My baby doll would be home. I ran downstairs. My socks still hung there flat. But I knew they were not empty; they were filled with love! 56. What happened to the author on September 11th, 1958? A. He got a baby brother. B. He got a Christmas gift. C. He became four years old.

But in order to work up the desire to rewrite, it is important to learn to like what you write at the early stage. I am surprised at the number of famous writers I know who say that they so dislike reading their own writing later that they even hate to look over the publishers’ opinions. One reason we may dislike reading our own work is that we’re often disappointed that the rich ideas in our minds seem very thin and plain when first written down. Jerry Fodor and Steven Pinker suggest that this fact may be a result of how our minds work. Different from popular belief, we do not usually think in the words and sentences of ordinary

language but in symbols for ideas (known as “mentalese”), and writing our ideas down is an act of translation from that symbolic language. But while mentalese contains our thoughts in the form of a complex tapestry (织锦), writing can only be composed one thread at a time. Therefore it should not be surprising that our first attempt at expressing ideas should look so simple. It is only by repeatedly rewriting that we produce new threads and connect them to get closer to the ideas formed in our minds. When people write as if some strict critics (批评家) are looking over their shoulder, they are so worried about what this critic might say that they get stuck before they even start. Peter Elbow makes an excellent suggestion to deal with this problem. When writing we should have two different minds. At the first stage, we should see every idea, as well as the words we use to express it, as wonderful and worth putting down. It is only during rewrites that we should examine what we excitedly wrote in the first stage and check for weaknesses. 60. What do we learn from the text about those famous writers? A. They often regret writing poor works. B. Some of them write surprisingly much. C. Many of them hate reading their own works. D. They are happy to review the publishers’ opinions. 61. What do people generally believe about the way human minds work? A. People think in words and sentences. B. Human ideas are translated into symbols. C. People think by connecting threads of ideas. D. Human thoughts are expressed through pictures. 62. What can we conclude from the text? A. Most people believe we think in symbols. B. Loving our own writing is scientifically reasonable. C. The writers and critics can never reach an agreement. D. Thinking and writing are different stages of mind at work. 短文填词(共 10 题小题,每小题 1 分,满分 10 分)2009 福建 阅读下面短文,根据以下要求:1)首字母提示;2)语境提示;3)汉语提示,在每个空格内 填入一个适当的英语单词,并将该词完整地写在右边相对应的横线上。所填单词要求意义准确、拼 写正确。 Mr. Smith offers us some advice on how to write a good composition, which i the following steps. 76. includes Firstly, we should read the topic c and organize our ideas. 77. carefully Then we start to shape our thoughts our own word and finish 78. in our writing in the g time.
