And it is exactly because the schizophrenic charges read out in this trial are sewn from this kind of vast mutually exclusive absurdity that I am unable to understand them and defend myself against them.
И именно потому, что оглашенное в настоящем судебном заседании шизофреническое обвинение сшито из подобного рода многочисленного взаимоисключающего абсурда, я не имею возможности его понять и от него защищаться.

Briefly - I have no time left and nor, I assure you,' the colonel said with baleful emphasis, 'have you. Let me ask you a question: whom are you proposing to defend?'
Коротко: времени у меня нет, и, уверяю вас, – зловеще и значительно подчеркнул полковник, – и у вас тоже. Вопрос: кого желаете защищать?

Upon the tenth day we were chased by two pirates, who soon overtook us; for my sloop was so deep laden, that she sailed very slow, neither were we in a condition to defend ourselves..
На десятый день за нами пустились в погоню два пирата, которые скоро настигли нас, так как мой сильно нагруженный шлюп мог только медленно подвигаться вперед; вдобавок мы были лишены возможности защищаться.

IN SEPTEMBER, 1805, when Lewis and Clark came down off the Rockies on their westward journey, the entire exploring party was half-famished and ill with dysentery — too weak to defend themselves.
В сентябре 1805 г., когда Льюис и Кларк спустились со Скалистых гор во время своего путешествия на Запад, их исследовательская группа страдала от голода и дизентерии. Они были настолько слабы, что не смогли бы защитить себя.

It is that freedom from stripes and bondage which was claimed, as you may read in Scripture, by the Apostle Paul himself, and which every man who is free-born is called upon to defend, for his own sake and that of his countrymen.»
Это свобода от кнута и тюрьмы, провозглашенная, как вы можете прочесть в Священном писании, не кем иным, как апостолом Павлом, и ее обязан отстаивать всякий, рожденный свободным, как ради себя самого, так и ради своих соотечественников.

'And even if you spoke the truth, even if your hands were really filled with pleasures, even if you should carry me to a couch of roses and offer me the dreams of Paradise, I would defend myself yet the more desperately from your embraces.
Но даже если бы ты говорила правду, если бы руки твои сулили все наслаждения, если бы ты могла унести меня на ложе из роз и навеять мне там райские сны, я и тогда еще отчаяннее защищался бы от твоих объятий!
