It seems to me, as if, hunted by calamity as I have been, that I should never recover any cheerfulness again.

这句话是Shelley著作中的原文。
句中"calamity as I have been"是一个定语从句,翻译为简单句就是"I have been calamity"。
某人遭遇不幸,用calamity一词该怎么说呢?是I have been calamity吗?calamity一词是不幸、灾难的意思,一个人怎么可以和灾难、不幸等同起来呢?感觉意思好象不大通顺。
如果不是这样,那么用calamity该怎么说呢?原句中的calamity as I have been,又该如何解释呢?

hunted by calamity as I have been

我认为上面的那个短语在整个词中充当插入语,而非从句。不知您有没有注意到“hunted”. as I have been hunted by calamity, 而非as I have been calamity.

在我看来,我仿佛一直被厄运被缠绕,我再也无法快活起来了。
