I did not regard her as a clown, or as stupid.
Я не считал ее ни клоуном, ни дурой.

No one pities a jester overcome in his vocation, and the clown met with little sympathy, when, rising from the ground, and whimpering forth his complaints of harsh treatment, he invoked the assistance and sympathy of the audience.
Никто не жалеет актера, злоупотребляющего свободой своего амплуа, и когда шут, поднявшись с земли, стал жаловаться на суровую расправу, взывая к зрителям, ему не удалось вызвать их сочувствие.

“Look,” she implored him, pointing at a little troop of boys carrying cricket stumps, and one shuffled, spun round on his heel and shuffled, as if he were acting a clown at the music hall.
- Погляди, - молила она, показывая на группку мальчишек, они шли с крикетными битами, и один все шаркал, и вертелся на каблуке, и шаркал, будто клоуна изображал в мюзик-холле.

She laughed boisterously, and Neil thought that it was less the horrors of Snood than the pleasantries of wives like Vestal that would make him join forever that "clown of a nigger preacher," Evan Brewster.
Она весело захохотала, и Нийл подумал, что шуточки таких жен, как Вестл, скорее, чем вся мерзость Снуда, могут побудить его навсегда уйти к "черномазому шуту-проповеднику" Ивену Брустеру.

Towards the end of roll-call eight kapos came into the special barracks. They wore ridiculous, clown-like peaked caps and a bright yellow band on their sleeves.
Перед концом вечерней поверки в особый барак вошли восемь лагерных полицейских – капо в дурацких, клоунских фуражках, с ярко‑желтой перевязью на рукавах.

Across the street a clown picked up a ladder, turned, knocked the clown behind him into a bucket of water, then turned again to see what the commotion was, thus sending his rising victim into the bucket again with a surprising parping noise.
На противоположной стороне улицы клоун поднял лестницу, повернулся, сбил стоявшего за его спиной клоуна в ведро с водой, снова повернулся, чтобы посмотреть, чем вызван шум, и свалил пытавшуюся встать жертву обратно в ведро.

A chorus of wretched singers and a drunken, but exceedingly depressed German clown from Munich with a red nose entertained the public.
Хор скверных песенников и какой-то пьяный мюнхенский немец вроде паяца, с красным носом, но отчего-то чрезвычайно унылый, увеселяли публику.

But it was a hazard until he could deface it, as the next town clown might not be as friendly as this one.
А что, если он не успеет вовремя сделать это, а очередной коп окажется менее дружелюбным, чем этот?

"I thought... I thought," he said. in a soft and, as it were, controlled voice, "that I was coming to my native place with the angel of my heart, my betrothed, to cherish his old age, and I find nothing but a depraved profligate, a despicable clown!"
-- Я думал... я думал, -- как-то тихо и сдержанно проговорил он, -- что приеду на родину с ангелом души моей, невестою моей, чтобы лелеять его старость, а вижу лишь развратного сладострастника и подлейшего комедианта!

The blood has coated his lips a rich candy red, top to bottom, side to side, and the smile actually looks more like the grin of a clown.
Кровь полностью покрывает его губы густо‑красным сиропом, и сверху, и снизу, от край до края, и улыбка его больше похожа на ухмылку клоуна.

"Damn it all! I can hardly button it," Mitya grumbled. "Be so good as to tell Mr. Kalganov from me that I didn't ask for his clothes, and it's not my doing that they've dressed me up like a clown."
— Чорт возьми, и застегнуться трудно, — заворчал снова Митя, — сделайте одолжение, извольте от меня сей же час передать господину Калганову, что не я просил у него его платья, и что меня самого перерядили в шута.
