Edgar Allan Poe's Tale-Writing

請問有人知道下面這段話是甚麼意思嗎??

There has long existed in literature a fatal and unfounded prejudice, which it will be the office of this age to overthrow--the idea that the mere bulk of a work must enter largely into our estimate of its merit. I do not suppose even the weakest of the Quarterly reviewers weak enough to maintain that in a book's size or mass, abstractly considered, there is anything which especially calls for our admiration.

    There has long existed in literature a fatal and unfounded prejudice,

    文藝作品長久來存有一要命和無稽的成見,

    the idea that the mere bulk of a work must enter largely into our estimate of its merit.

    那就是一份作品的篇幅長短必須列入其優劣的考量,

    which it will be the office of this age to overthrow--

    而這就像是此一時代的舊有體制,將遭到變革顛覆。

    I do not suppose even the weakest of the Quarterly reviewers weak enough to maintain that in a book's size or mass, abstractly considered, there is anything which especially calls for our admiration.

    我並不認為,即使是此一季刊最微不足道的評論者會假想地主張, 單就一本大部頭長篇累牘的份量而言,就因此值得人們推崇。

    第一句,"文藝作品" 應改為 "文藝界"

    There has long existed in literature a fatal and unfounded prejudice,

    文藝界長久來存有一要命和無稽的成見,

    第二句,漏了largely,

    the idea that the mere bulk of a work must enter largely into our estimate of its merit.

    那就是一份作品的篇幅長短必須列入其優劣的重要考量

    第三句,修正語意

    which it will be the office of this age to overthrow--

    而這將會是此一時代,需要變革顛覆的舊思維(體制)

    我並不認為,即使是此一季刊最微不足道的評論者會, (僅就假想性地) 作出如此薄弱地主張: 一本大部頭, 單就其長篇累牘的份量,就值得人們推崇。

    ..."weak" enough to maintain... 如此"淺薄地"主張
