Here in the dim light of their subterranean home the value of their great eyes was apparent, for these inner caves are shrouded in perpetual gloom that is but little less than utter darkness.
Здесь становилось понятно значение их огромных глаз: внутренние пещеры погружены почти в полный мрак.

Indeed, one gained a curious impression that this place had been deliberately closed and deserted in some dim, bygone aeon, rather than overwhelmed by any sudden calamity or even gradual decay.
Трудно было отделаться от впечатления, что город не бросили в спешке, застигнутые внезапной бедой, а покинули сознательно. И речи не могло идти постепенном вымирании.

The walls were painted in dispiriting gloss shades, green and cream and grey: they looked worse than ever in the dim blue light.
Глянцевые стены, выкрашенные в унылые тона – зеленый, кремовый и серый, – в тусклом синем свете выглядели еще более удручающе.

But even at that moment he had a dim foreboding that this happier frame of mind was also not normal.
Но даже и в эту минуту он отдаленно предчувствовал, что вся эта восприимчивость к лучшему была тоже болезненная.

Future things swim before me, as in empty outlines and skeletons; all the past is somehow grown dim.
Будущее проплывает передо мной пустыми очертаниями и остовами; а прошлое словно затянуто дымкой.

It took Pat's eyes several seconds to adapt to the dim red glow. Then he saw that a metal tube was protruding through the roof.
И когда глаза Пата привыкли к тусклому красному сиянию, он увидел пронизавший потолок металлический цилиндр.

The shade it cast was so imperceptible that it wafted to them none of the languor that some dim coppice might have done.
И тень неизменно была такой светлой, что не навевала ни истомы глубоких чаш, ни тревоги затерянных уголков, этих зеленых альковов.

I could make out a dozen dim contrails against vague bands of cloud, in reds so deep they bordered on black.
Поверх расплывчатых облачных поясов, в темном пурпуре, почти граничащим с чернотой, виднелось около дюжины слабых инверсионных следов.

His head swayed about on his shoulders, and he looked at us with the vague, dim gaze of a drunken man.
Голова его склонилась на плечо, он смотрел на нас мутным, пьяным взглядом.
