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 ‘si’.
My dictionary gives this as:
si (pron) = himself, herself, itself
Here is an example:
Si guardava allo specchio. = He was watching himself in the mirror.
The story so far
Storia di una capinera
Avevo visto una povera capinera chiusa in gabbia: era timide, triste, malaticcia ci guardava con occhio spaventato; si
Story of a blackcap
I had seen a poor blackcap locked in a cage: it was timid, sad, sickly it watched us with terrified eye; itself (this will become clearer with the next word)
