雖然無極大師的說法也通, 但是版主問的是一個特定句型, 表達的並不是這樣的含意.
What it sees there isn't so much a face as the expression of a predicament.
它所看到的, 與其說是一張臉, 倒不如說是一付困窘的表情. [not so much A as B]: 本來的意思是[A的成份沒有B的成份多], 用中文的語法說就是:[其說是A, 倒不如說是B.]

She was not so much nervous as impatient for the journey to be over.
Most of our diversions do not so much delay death as accustom us to it. 所以並不是[so + adj. + n.]/[such + adj. + n.]的用法.

Then to the mirror. What it sees there isn't so much a face as the
expression of a predicament.
然後到了鏡子前, 在那兒它所見到的, 比一張帶著困窘表情的臉差不了多少.
it = body(身體擬人化)
so Adj.a N.
= such a Adj. N.
isn't so much a face as xxx
= is a face no more than xxx參考資料： *Infinito - 無極*
