3 as 从句的语法分析(as we now know them)

Reading Art: Art for Book Lovers is a celebration of an everyday object — the book, represented here in almost three hundred artworks from museums around the world. The image of the reader appears throughout history, in art made long before books as we now know them came into being. In artists’ representations of books and reading, we see moments of shared humanity that go beyond culture and time.

首先要说明的是,这里的 them 并非是多余的。这里的 as we know them 其实是一种惯用法表达,通常用于名词后起补充说明的作用,其前的名词则是我们现在所熟悉或了解的事物。其中的as为连词,引导比较状语从句,as的意思是正如,强调同一性,know后面用it还是them取决于其前的名词是单数还是复数,这类从句的字面意思是正如我们现在所知道(了解、熟悉)的,具体翻译视语境而定。如:

Let’s go over the facts as we know them. 让我们考虑一下我们所了解的事实。

Will computers lead to the death of the printed word as we know it? 计算机会让我们所熟悉的那种印刷字体寿终正寝吗?

The museum outlines the development of the city as we know it today. 博物馆概述了这个我们现在熟悉的城市的发展。

网友句子的意思是:

The image of the reader appears throughout history, in art made long before books as we now know them came into being.

纵观历史,阅读者的形象远在我们现在所熟知的书籍出现之前就出现在了艺术作品中。
