Round-Up: February 12

Here is a round-up of today's blog posts - and for previous posts, check out the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives. You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you might prefer to subscribe by email.

Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Iuvene et Hirundine, a great story for the supernaturally warm weather we've been enjoying here this week.

Proverbiis Pipilo: You can see my Twitter feed, full of proverbs while I am online each day - here's a recent one I really liked: Virtus dabit, cura servabit.

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Sua cuique sunt vitia (English: To each his own vices - a worldly wise variation on the familiar "to each his own" saying). You can use the Javascript to include the Latin proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog. Meanwhile, to read a brief essay about this proverb, visit the AudioLatinProverbs.com website.

Greek Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Λύπης πάσης γίνετ' ἰατρὸς χρόνος (English: Time is the doctor of every pain - this words very nicely with both time and doctor being masculine nouns in Greek). You can use the Javascript to include the Greek proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog - and each Greek proverb also comes with a Latin version.

Latin Via Fables: Simplified Fables: I'm now presenting the "Barlow Aesop" collection, fable by fable, in a SIMPLIFIED version (same story, but in simpler sentences) - with a SLIDESHOW presentation to go along with it, too. Today's Simplified fable is Fable 29: Vulpes et Uva, the story of the (supposedly) sour grapes.

Fable of the Day: Today's fable of the day from Barlow's Aesop is DE CANE ET LUPO (a great story about how freedom is superior to material comfort... a fable that explains my own career choices, that's for sure!). You can use the Javascript to include the fable of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog - meanwhile, to find out more about today's fable, visit the Ning Resource Page, where you will find links to the text, commentary, as well as a discussion board for questions and comments.




Aesop's Fables in Latin now available at Amazon.com. DUE TO AN ERROR AT BOLCHAZY-CARDUCCI, the book's publishers, the Amazon listing may read "unavailable." I hope to have this error corrected soon!
