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 ‘allegro’.
My dictionary gives this as:
allegro (agg) = happy, joyful, cheerful, merry
Here is an example:
Amici miei, che allegro giorno! = My friends, what a joyful day!
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 rifuggiava in un angolo della sua gabbia, e allorché udiva il canto allegro
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; taking shelter in a corner of its cage, and when it heard the joyful song
I have seen a poor blackcap locked in a cage. Timid, sad and sickly, it watched us with one terrified eye; it cowered in a corner of its cage, and on hearing the cheerful song
