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 ‘occhio’.
My dictionary gives this as:
occhio (sm) = eye
Here is an example:
Le persone con l’occhio azzurro sono molto invidiate = People with blue eyes are much envied
The story so far
Storia di una capinera
Avevo visto una povera capinera chiusa in gabbia: era timide, triste, malaticcia ci guardava con occhio
Story of a blackcap
I had seen a poor blackcap locked in a cage: it was timid, sad, sickly it watched us with eye (this will become clearer as we translate the following words).
