Few have the nerve to gainsay him, for in his cups the King has a terrible and violent temper, and he is rarely sober.

    很少人有膽子跟他唱反調,因為國王喝醉時,脾氣可怕又暴力,而且他極少時候是不醉的。[說明:for(連接詞)因為 = because。in one's cups = drunk 喝醉了。sober = free from alcoholism, not drinking alcohol 清醒不醉的。]

    In his cups 或可譯成「貪杯酒醉時」,把「杯」字譯進去。
