I don't deny that Makar Ivanovitch might, if he had been wittily disposed, have looked upon my sobs as the climax of mockery, but in those days he was too honest to be so clear-sighted.
Не спорю, что Макар Иванович мог бы принять это плечо за усиление насмешки, если бы был остроумнее; но его честность помешала тогда его прозорливости.

And this tension goes on, goes on, and becomes a climax: thunderous, roaring, like a storm; a madness arises out of it.
Напряжение это все усиливается и приводит к кульминации: ревущий, грохочущий шторм, от этого возникает безумие.

It was all settled in Aglaya's mind. She was only waiting for the hour that would bring the matter to a final climax; and every hint, every careless probing of her wound, did but further lacerate her heart.
Уже всё было решено в голове Аглаи; она тоже ждала своего часа, который должен был всё решить, и всякий намек, всякое неосторожное прикосновение глубокою раной раздирали ей сердце.
