driven by circumstances
Kako je ovo književni tekst, ovdje bih to radije prevela kao "driven by circumstances", a rečenicu možete prevesti na jedan od sljedećih načina:
"Driven by circumstances, he entered the world of literature ..."
ali možete isto tako preokrenuti rečenicu na sljedeći način, ovisno o daljnjem kontekstu:
"He was driven by circumstances into the world of literature..."
ili "He was driven by circumstances to enter the world of literature..."
Evo i nekoliko primjera:
"Each story is highly personal and particular. As a body, they document that women who find themselves in prison are often driven by circumstances into a situation where the emotional or material poverty of their lives makes breaking the law the only option."
"James Stewart is a small-town banker who is driven by circumstances one Christmas Eve to consider suicide..."
"Many of these victims are the poorest members of society, driven by circumstances to settle in flood plains or on other marginal land."
"Albert Neri, a man driven by circumstances into the world of crime"
"Finally driven by circumstances (the natural circumstances, the author suggests, of the American way of life) and his own sensitivity, he becomes a suspect in the murder..."
"and that actual criminals are simply those normal individuals who were driven by circumstances to become criminals."
"Hillary is being driven by circumstances to embody the very stereotype that has always haunted her."
