Between the tall flowering shrubs they passed like a vision of such wondrous charm that the distant paths seemed to entreat their presence and hail them with a murmur of admiration, even as crowds hail long-expected sovereigns.
Восхитительное зрелище представляла собой эта пара, продвигавшаяся среди больших кустов в цвету; ее, казалось, ждали и звали к себе отдаленные аллеи сада, приветствуя шепотом восхищения, как заждавшиеся толпы народа приветствуют своих государей.

The following day, when the marketing took her to town, she had gone by the Travellers' Rest, which, at eleven in the morning, had all the charm of something which has died badly at the side of the road.

I fancy,' added my neighbour, with another glance sideways at me, 'I may pass over in silence the first impressions of country life, references to the beauty of nature, the gentle charm of solitude, etc.’
Кажется, – прибавил мой сосед, опять взглянув на меня сбоку, – я могу пройти молчанием первые впечатления деревенской жизни, намеки на красоту природы, тихую прелесть одиночества и прочее…

Add to that, nervous irritability from hunger, from lodging in a hole, from rags, from a vivid sense of the charm of his social position and his sister's and mother's position too.

But Kalinitch was endowed with powers which even Hor recognised; he could charm away haemorrhages, fits, madness, and worms; his bees always did well; he had a light hand.
Но Калиныч был одарен преимуществами, которые признавал сам Хорь, например: он заговаривал кровь, испуг, бешенство, выгонял червей; пчелы ему дались, рука у него была легкая.

I think that is because Julian himself was constantly in the process of reinventing the people and events around him, conferring kindness, or wisdom, or bravery, or charm, on actions which contained nothing of the sort.
Думаю, связано это с тем, что он и сам, по сути дела, постоянно выдумывал окружающий мир, усматривая храбрость, чуткость, милосердие там, где ничего подобного не было и в помине.
