I have set myself the challenge of translating ‘Storia di una Capinera’ by Giovanni Verga into English at the rate of a word a day.
The next new word in the text is ‘con’.
My dictionary gives this as:
con (prep) = with
Here is an example:
lo accolse con un sorriso = she (or he) greeted him with a smile
The story so far
Storia di una capinera
Avevo visto una povera capinera chiusa in gabbia: era timide, triste, malaticcia ci guardava con . . .
Story of a blackcap
I had seen a poor blackcap locked in a cage: it was timid, sad, sickly it watched us with . . .
