Aver, qué nos puede decir una novela de 1866 España
So, what can a novel set in 1866 Spain
sobre la educaciôn legal y financiero por los adultos de hoy en dîa, en los EEUU?
about legal and financial on-going adult education in the US, today?
Well after building considerable empathy for the lady/love interest, the author of El Maestro de Esgrima (The Fencing Master) does something terrible to her, which might not have happened had she been in another country, where her legal and financial rights could be defended by her and herself alone. Knowing those rights is crucial in any situation.
My notes thus far:
“No de arrepentía de haber vivido: había amado y había matado…”
Cómo Alonso en El Ministerio del Tiempo:
“No tengo quejas: he amado… he luchado por mi patria…”
I love this idea:
No regrets, after having loved, and fought with honor…”
“Daría cualquier cosa por enviarle …mis padrinos al hombre…””
“Sólo es esclavo quién espera algo de los demás-”
dicho por el maestro de esgrima…
Entiendo el contexto, pero…”
So, it turns out that I was wrong about the political talk being filler, as it becomes crucial later on in the story. More on my continuing striving with Castilian Spanish, which I really ought to find another show to watch so that I don’t forget the spoken rhythms, which differ markedly from Latin and Argentine Spanish.
1.) Share two different sources to translate the word “fencing” into Spanish.
2.) Share your thoughts on how you like each of the sources you found.
3.) Write a blog post or tweet that uses a Spanish word, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, please donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
