  • 1 идти прахом

    1) (окончательно разрушаться, разваливаться, погибать и т. п.) crumble into dust; go to rack and ruin; go to hell (to blazes, to pot, to the devil, to the dogs)

    - Ежели одно дерево высохнет или, скажем, одна корова падёт, и то жалость берёт, а каково, добрый человек, глядеть, коли весь мир идёт прахом? (А. Чехов, Свирель) — 'If a single tree withers away, or let us say a single cow dies, it makes one sorry, but what will it be, good man, if the whole world crumbles into dust?'

    Он тяжело склонился на седле, точно жестокий груз собственных слов давил его. - Всё прахом пошло. Сорок человек потеряли. За всё лето убытку такого не было. (А. Фадеев, Разгром) — He dropped forward wearily into the saddle, as if crushed by the heavy load of his own words. 'Everything's gone to blazes. We lost forty men. We haven't had such a loss the whole summer.'

    Задумано было как будто на века, а на деле излишества оказались крайне непрочными. Уже через два-три года после постройки и заселения дом, как говорится, пошёл прахом. (И. Грекова, Кафедра) — It might have been intended to last for centuries, but in reality all the extravagant decorative details turned out to be extremely flimsy. Only two or three years after it had been built and occupied, the building had started going to rack and ruin.

    2) (заканчиваться впустую, даром, безрезультатно) come to nothing (naught); go up in smoke; fall to the ground; come unstuck

    - Вы не представляете, как рискованно то, что предлагает Беридзе!... Как мне убедить вас? Все драгоценные средства, которые мы расходуем сейчас, пойдут прахом... (В. Ажаев, Далеко от Москвы) — 'You can't imagine how risky Beridze's proposal is!.. How can I convince you? All the precious resources that we are now expending will go up in smoke.'
