I was taken back again to those schooldays I had been reflecting on, when cruel children would imitate my movements, and I confess that as I watched the novice staggering about, bent and gesticulating, the hair rose on my neck.
В какое-то мгновение я вновь почувствовал себя затравленным школьником, мишенью для насмешек и издевательств. Наблюдая за согбенным, нарочито жестикулирующим безумцем, я ощущал, как волосы у меня становятся дыбом.

Then that scoundrel Colonel Shchetkin drove up and said (here Myshlaevsky twisted his expression in an attempt to imitate the features of the detested Colonel Shchetkin and he began talking in a thin, grating lisp):
Приезжает эта лахудра – полковник Щеткин и говорит (тут Мышлаевский перекосил лицо, стараясь изобразить ненавистного ему полковника Щеткина, и заговорил противным, тонким и сюсюкающим голосом):

Since the Scottish envoy seemed to be doing nothing that Jim would have to notice, memorize, and in time imitate, Jim decided that he might possibly get another duty out of the way.
Поскольку шотландский посланник, похоже, не собирался делать ничего такого, что можно было бы заметить, запомнить и затем попытаться воспроизвести, Джим решил пока заняться другими делами.

She fell for Doyle"—another hall-boy whom by this time Clyde had already observed as being the quintessence of Chesterfieldian grace and airs and looks, a youth to imitate—"for a while, but now she's got some one else."
Она было спуталась с Дойлом (один из рассыльных, очень красивый и изящный мальчик, с приятными манерами, которого Клайд уже отметил как образец, достойный подражания), а теперь нашла другого.

Involuntarily I was influenced by his whims, for, though too proud to imitate him, I was also too young and too lacking in independence to choose my own way.
Я невольно увлекался его страстями; но был слишком горд, чтобы идти по его следам, и слишком молод и несамостоятелен, чтобы избрать новую дорогу.

he wouldn't imitate their foolery," other voices chimed in at once. And it is hard to say how far they might have gone, but at that moment the bell rang summoning them to service.
не станет ихним дурачествам подражать, — тотчас же подхватили другие голоса, и до чего бы это дошло, трудно и представить себе, но как-раз ударил в ту минуту колокол, призывая к службе.

Fagin followed up this remark by striking the side of his nose with his right forefinger,-a gesture which Noah attempted to imitate, though not with complete success, in consequence of his own nose not being large enough for the purpose.
Феджин подкрепил это замечание, постукав себя сбоку по носу указательным пальцем — жест, который Ноэ попробовал воспроизвести, хотя и не особенно успешно, ибо его собственный нос был для этого слишком мал.

He had no wish to imitate the fresh-air faddists and smart pseudo-sportsmen, who would have been equally eager to sit all day and play cards in a stuffy room, if only that had been interdicted by authority.
Тщеславие не подстегивало его к соревнованию с фатоватыми энтузиастами свежего воздуха и «шикарными» спортсменами, которые, будь это моднее, с таким же сосредоточенным усердием уселись бы в душной комнате за карточный стол.
