  11月6日GRE阅读部分:

  值得注意的是,一次考试非加试V的情况下,第一个V会有不同的套题(笔者做到的长阅读是关于二月革命,其他考生反馈长阅读关于意大利文艺复兴建筑)。也就是说一次考试除了自适应的section,大家的初始section也可能是不同的。

  原题:

  In February 1848 the people of Paris rose in revolt against the constitutional monarchy of Louis-Philippe. Despite the existence of excellent narrative accounts, the February Days, as this revolt is called, have been largely ignored by social historians of the past two decades. For each of the three other major insurrections in nineteenth-century Paris—July 1830, June 1848, and May 1871—there exists at least a sketch of participants’ backgrounds and an analysis, more or less rigorous, of the reasons for the occurrence of the uprisings. Only in the case of the February Revolution do we lack a useful description of participants that might characterize it in the light of what social history has taught us about the process of revolutionary mobilization.

  Two reasons for this relative neglect seem obvious. First, the insurrection of February has been overshadowed by that of June. The February Revolution overthrew a regime, to be sure, but met with so little resistance that it failed to generate any real sense of historical drama. Its successor, on the other hand, appeared to pit key socioeconomic groups in a life-or-death struggle and was widely seen by contemporary observers as marking a historical departure. Through their interpretations, which exert a continuing influence on our understanding of the revolutionary process, the impact of the events of June has been magnified, while, as an unintended consequence, the significance of the February insurrection has been diminished. Second, like other “successful” insurrections, the events of February failed to generate the most desirable kinds of historical records. Although the June insurrection of 1848 and the Paris Commune of 1871 would be considered watersheds of nineteenth-century French history by any standard, they also present the social historian with a signal advantage: these failed insurrections created a mass of invaluable documentation as a by-product of authorities’ efforts to search out and punish the rebels.

  Quite different is the outcome of successful insurrections like those of July 1830 and February 1848. Experiences are retold, but participants typically resume their daily routines without ever recording their activities. Those who played salient roles may become the objects of highly embellished verbal accounts or in rare cases, of celebratory articles in contemporary periodicals. And it is true that the publicly acknowledged leaders of an uprising frequently write memoirs. However, such documents are likely to be highly unreliable, unrepresentative, and unsystematically preserved, especially when compared to the detailed judicial dossiers prepared for everyone arrested following a failed insurrection. As a consequence, it may prove difficult or impossible to establish for a successful revolution a comprehensive and trustworthy picture of those who participated, or to answer even the most basic questions one might pose concerning the social origins of the insurgents.

  (A) negligible (B) misguided (C) fanatical

  (D) The thesis presented in the first paragraph is systematically supported.

  (E) The thesis presented in the first paragraph is further defined and a conclusion drawn.

  3. It can be inferred from the passage that the author considers which of the following essential for understanding a revolutionary mobilization?

  (A) A comprehensive theory of revolution that can be applied to the major insurrections of the nineteenth century

  (B) Awareness of the events necessary for a revolution to be successful

  (C) Access to narratives and memoirs written by eyewitnesses of a given revolution

  (D) The historical perspective provided by the passage of a considerable amount of time

  (E) Knowledge of the socioeconomic backgrounds of a revolution’s participants

  答案:D

  4. Which of the following can be inferred about the “detailed judicial dossiers” referred to in line 49?

  (A) Information contained in the dossiers sheds light on the social origins of a revolution’s participants.

  (B) The dossiers closely resemble the narratives written by the revolution’s leaders in their personal memoirs.

  (C) The information that such dossiers contain is untrustworthy and unrepresentative of a revolution’s participants.

  (D) Social historians prefer to avoid such dossiers whenever possible because they are excessively detailed.

  (E) The February Revolution of 1848 produced more of these dossiers than did the June insurrection.

  答案:A
