Examples from texts

He had got completely away from every one, like a tortoise in its shell, and even the sight of the servant girl who had to wait upon him and looked sometimes into his room made him writhe with nervous irritation.
Он решительно ушел от всех, как черепаха в свою скорлупу, и даже лицо служанки, обязанной ему прислуживать и заглядывавшей иногда в его комнату, возбуждало в нем желчь и конвульсии.

Quickly he came to his senses, though, enough to writhe out from under the body, at least.
Тем не менее он быстро пришел в себя, по крайней мере настолько, чтобы выползти из- под тела троллока.

And then he feels something writhe against his hand, something cool and wet, with the texture of raw liver.
Потом почувствовал на ладони что-то прохладное, влажное, на ощупь похожее на сырую печенку.

Завтра она снова будет думать о поведении Ретта, о своем унижении и снова будет кипеть от гнева.

'You are going from pride,' he says. 'You'll stand up and say it was I killed him, and why do you writhe with horror? You are lying! I despise your opinion, I despise your horror!' He said that about me.
Ты, говорит, из гордости идешь, ты станешь и скажешь: "это я убил, и чего вы корчитесь от ужаса, вы лжете! Мнение ваше презираю, ужас ваш презираю".

The way led across the main floor, winding among weird rock formations. The moving light made the twisted forms around him writhe with life.
Путь вился среди причудливых каменных образований, в движущемся свете они казались живыми существами.

I looked Elena, who had been standing as though unconscious, uttering a strange, unnatural scream, fell with a thud on the ground, writhing in awful convulsions.
Я взглянул, - Елена, стоявшая как без чувств, вдруг с страшным, неестественным криком ударилась оземь и билась в страшных судорогах.

The Power in the walls turned to streaks of oil on a wet surface as I collapsed, only Japhrimel's sudden clutching hand keeping me from spilling writhing to the ground.
Сила, которой были напоены стены, выступила из них струйками и разводами, словно влага. Меня повело, и если бы Джафримель вовремя не подхватил меня, уже корчилась бы на полу.

But the worst of it, he saw when he came nearer, was that this sagging portion of the body was transparent and filled with a mass of writhing things which made one think of a pail of gaily colored worms.
Но худшее он обнаружил, подойдя поближе: вздутая нижняя часть была прозрачной, и внутри что-то непрерывно извивалось и копошилось – казалось, ты видишь огромную банку, наполненную червяками самых ярких расцветок.

Limping and writhing with pain he went down the steps and towards the garden.
Хромая и корчась от боли, сошел он с крылечка и направился к саду.

They still wore an aspect of tragic passion, with their hot ledges of stone whereon the fleshy plants writhed monstrously.
В них и теперь еще жила грозная страсть, сохранились те горячие каменные ложа, где жирные ползучие растения совершали свое чудовищное соитие.

Sparks flew, tiny wisps of steam trailed off, vapors rose amid a writhing tangle of mad mechanical appendages.
Летели искры, вверх струились тоненькие струйки дыма, туман и пар поднимались от извивающегося клубка механических рук.
