Heathcliff noticed little of what was happening around him, and would never have been aware of the cousins’ feelings, if it hadn't been for Joseph. In the middle of our lunch one day, the old man rushed into the room, shaking with anger.
解析：be aware of 知道、意识到
eg: Are you aware of your mistakes?
'I'll have to leave! I wanted to die here, where I've been a servant for sixty years! But now she's taken my garden from me! She's stolen the boy's soul, master! I can't bear it!'
'Is the fool drunk?' asked Heathcliff. 'Can you explain this, Hareton?'
eg: Don't drink anymore, or you will get drunk.
'I've pulled up two or three of his fruit-trees,' confessed Hareton, 'but I'll put them back again.'
eg: I have to confess that I was wrong.
'It was my fault,' added Cathy bravely. 'I asked him to do it．We wanted to plant some flowers there.'
'Who the devil gave you permission?' growled Heathcliff.
词根为permit vt./vi 允许
eg: We should ask Tina for permission before we using her bike.
'You should let me have a bit of garden, as you've taken all my land!' replied Cathy sharply. 'And you've taken Hareton's land too! He and I are friends now! I'll tell him about you!'
The master stood up, staring at her fiercely.
eg: "You will regret for leaving me today!"said Jim fiercely.
'Out of the room, wicked girl!' he shouted. 'I'll kill you if I get near you!'
'If you hit me, Hareton will hit you. He won't obey you any more, and soon he'll hate you as much as I do!'
