   译文:

   美国作家埃德加·坡生于1809年,他的父母都是演员。埃德加还是婴儿时,他的父亲就离开了。他两岁时母亲去世了。埃德加被带到了一个富商约翰·爱伦的家里抚养,然后有了一个新名字——埃德加·爱伦·坡。年轻时坡在弗吉尼亚大学念书。他是个好学生,但是他喜欢喝酒和打牌赌博。作为一个笨拙的游戏玩家,他经常输钱。由于他无法还清赌债,他离开了大学,开始为杂志撰稿。他工作很努力,但是收入并不高,也不为人所知。27岁时,坡结婚了。在一段时期内坡似乎找到了幸福,但是在他们的婚姻中他的妻子大部分时间都在生病,并于1847年去世。在他的各种危机中,他创作了很多小说和诗歌,发表在不同的出版物中,但是直到1845年他的诗作《乌鸦》发表后他才开始出名。然而,关于埃德加·爱伦·坡在美国文学史上的重要性一直都有争论。一些评论家称他是美国最优秀的作家之一,甚至对很多法国作家都产生了深远的影响,但是其他人并不同意。他们说坡的作品难以理解,并且他的绝大多数作品都描述了很多令人不愉快的情形和事件。埃德加·爱伦·坡死于1849年,享年40岁。据说他被人发现时已因多日酗酒逝世。

   解析:

   人物生平类记叙文。

   26.B事实细节题。首句群出题。原文提到He was two years old when his mother died.由此可知答案为B,其中pass away为原文中die的同义替换。

   27.C事实细节题。因果关系出题。原文提到Since he couldn't pay his gambling losses,he left the university...所以答案是C,原文中的gambling losses和选项中的gambling debts为同义替换。

   28.C事实细节题。转折关系出题。原文提到...but others disagree.They say Poe's work is difficult to understand...所以答案是选项C,其中difficult to understand被difficult to read同义替换。

   29.D事实细节题。尾句群出题。原文提到Edgar Allen Poe died in 1849 when he was 40 years old.It is said that he was found dead after days of heavy drinking.视听基本一致,答案是D。
