Why Did Lord Voldemort Flee To Albania?

伏地魔为什么要逃到阿尔巴尼亚?

译者:兔子

 

Throughout the Harry Potter franchise, Lord Voldemort always seemed to choose Albania as the perfect hiding place. As far back as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Voldemort was known to have retreated to Albania in a weakened state after taking on the Potters, and has since revisited the Eastern European country several times throughout the franchise. While to some this may seem like a completely random setting for the Dark Lord's rehabilitation, the remote Albanian forests hold a special significance in the Wizarding World.

在整个《哈利·波特》系列中,伏地魔似乎总是选择阿尔巴尼亚作为藏身之处。早在《哈利·波特与魔法石》中,伏地魔被哈利波特击败后便逃往阿尔巴尼亚,并在整个系列中多次回到这个东欧国家。这似乎看起来只是一个随意的安排,但事实上,阿尔巴尼亚对整个魔法世界有着特殊的意义。

 

Aside from being a far away, remote location that could easily hide an injured Lord Voldemort, Albania's history in the Harry Potter franchise and specifically with the Dark Lord is deeper than most realize. After murdering Lily and James Potter in 1981, but failing to kill the young Harry, Voldemort, seriously weakened from the strain of creating seven Horcruxes and from the rebound of the Killing Curse intended for Harry, chose to flee to Albania in order to recover, staying there for a decade before Professor Quirrell found him and Voldemort saw an opportunity to regain his power. However, this had not been the first time that Voldemort had visited Albania, and wouldn't be the last.

1981年,伏地魔杀死了莉莉和詹姆·波特,但没能杀死襁褓中的哈利。由于受到了不可饶恕咒的反弹,伏地魔身体被彻底摧残,为了恢复健康,他选择逃往阿尔巴尼亚,并在那里待了十年,直到奇洛教授的到来,伏地魔才得以重获新生。然而,这不是伏地魔第一次去往阿尔巴尼亚,也不是最后一次。除了地理位置偏僻,便于隐藏之外,阿尔巴尼亚与伏地魔,其实还有很深的渊源。

 

Voldemort's obsession with Albania leads all the way back to one of the founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Rowena Ravenclaw, as well as connecting directly to his rise to power as the Dark Lord. There is, however, one major event in the Harry Potter timeline that explains Voldemort's constant returns to the country.

伏地魔对阿尔巴尼亚的痴迷可以追溯到霍格沃茨魔法学校的创始人之一罗威纳·拉文克劳。在《哈利·波特》的时间轴上,他成为黑魔王的经历可以解释伏地魔不断地回到这个国家的原因。

 

Though Albania is rarely mentioned in the Harry Potter film series, the novels expand much further on the significance of the Eastern European country, which it can be assumed also carries over to the films. Before Albania became Lord Voldemort's hiding place, it was the site chosen by Helena Ravenclaw to hide her mother's stolen diadem. Helena hides the diadem in an Albanian forest because of its remoteness, making the diadem incredibly difficult to find. Despite this, Tom Riddle would find it centuries later and turn the piece of jewelry into his fifth Horcrux. Even though Riddle brought the diadem back to Hogwarts after turning it into a Horcrux, Albania would've certainly become an important location for the budding villain.

虽然阿尔巴尼亚在《哈利·波特》系列电影中很少出现,但在小说中对这个东欧国家却有所提及。在阿尔巴尼亚成为伏地魔的藏身之地之前,海伦娜·拉文克劳选择了这里来藏匿她母亲的冠冕。她把王冠藏在阿尔巴尼亚的森林里,因为它地处偏远,使其难以被找到。尽管如此,汤姆·里德尔还是在几个世纪后找到了它,并把它变成了他的第五个魂器。虽然里德尔把冠冕最终藏在了霍格沃茨,但阿尔巴尼亚对伏地魔来说还有着很重要的意义。

 

With the milestone of the creation of a Horcrux, it makes sense that Lord Voldemort would feel a connection to the Albanian forest, potentially feeling as though a part of him still lives there. This would reinforce his decision to hide in Albania both after the attack at Godric's Hollow and after his failed attempt to steal the Sorcerer's Stone. He potentially also traveled back to Albania after the events of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone because he was confident that one of his followers, in this case Peter Pettigrew, would find him there just as Quirrell had. Without being found in Albania, Voldemort wouldn't have learned of the Triwizard Tournament, and wouldn't have devised his Goblet of Fire plan to kill Harry Potter and reinstate his former vitality. It would seem that Lord Voldemort shared a connection to the Albanian forests that few could relate to, making the country's appearances throughout the Harry Potter franchise all the more poignant.

在伏地魔心中阿尔巴尼亚有很高的地位,因为他在那里制造出了自己身体的一部分—一个魂器。这样想来,在戈德里克山谷被击败和偷取魔法石的计划泡汤后,他躲在阿尔巴尼亚也就不足为奇了。在魔法石事件发生后,他还回到了阿尔巴尼亚,因为他相信他的忠诚追随者——小矮星彼得,会像奇洛一样在那里找到他。从他后来知晓三强争霸赛并通过火焰杯来企图杀死哈利·波特,卷土重来,他确实在阿尔巴尼亚被发现了。伏地魔似乎和阿尔巴尼亚有着如此种种鲜为人知的联系,这些都使得这个国家在《哈利波特》系列电影中似乎蒙上了一层阴影。
