2 O liver’s first job
O liver stayed a prisoner alone in the dark room for a week． He cried bitterly all day，and when the long night came，he spread his little hands over his eyes to shut out the darkness， and tried to sleep．He was given freezing water to wash with，and was beaten daily by Mr Bumble in front of all the other boys in the hall，as a warning to them．
解析：try to do sth 努力做某事、尽力做某事（此事不一定成功了）
eg: I try to do something to help those homeless dogs.
One day Mr Bumble met the local undertaker， Mr Sowerberry， outside the workhouse．
eg: Oliver had been sojourning at the undertaker's some weeks.
‘Do you know anybody who wants to train a boy for work，Mr Sowerberry？’Mr Bumble pointed at the notice on the wall above him， which offered five pounds to anybody who would take O liver Twist for work．
解析: train 作动词意为训练、培养、培训；作名词则有火车的意思
eg: I think you should train your dog.
Mr Sowerberry rubbed his chin and thought for a while． ‘I pay enough for the poor with my taxes，’ he said， ‘so why shouldn’t I be able to make use of the m in my work？ Yes， I’ll take the boy myself．’
eg: He rubbed his forehead with the back of his hand.
And so the board agreed to send O liver to work for the undertaker．The necessary papers were signed．O liver’s small possessions were put into a brown paper parcel，and he was led to Mr Sowerberry’s house by Mr Bumble．As They walked along，tears began to run down O liver’s face．
eg: The long hair is the only possession that Della owns.
‘What is it this time？’asked Mr Bumble impatiently． ‘Don’t be so ungrateful．This gentleman is going to look after you.’
‘It’s just that I’m so lonely， sir！’ said the child． ‘Everybody hates me．Please don’t be angry with me，sir！’
