Many of the operas are the best or second best recordings ever made e. The rarer operas include some of the only available performances and the alternate versions of I Lombardi Jerusalem and Don Carlo Don Carlos are also in the set. Two accompanying books include cast, tracks, and detailed track by track summaries but not full librettos. April 9, By A. Ames See All My Reviews " Naxos certainly couldn't outdo this set at this price, even if it had access to a recording of every Verdi opera!
Although I have multiple sets of many of Verdi's operas including many of those included here , I am buying the set because I can't imagine such a deal showing up anywhere else in my lifetime I guess I probably have years left. They will also have some paper and ink. My uncle sells paper, pencils, pens and ink.

The "partitive genitive" has its own declension— i. The dative of this declension, however, is very rare. It is formed by putting a or ad before the partitive articles del, dclla, dello, delV ; pi. The genitive case of this declension is of frequent occurrence and very simple.
Here the article is entirely omitted, di taking its place before the substantive, as: Nom. Such is the case when the substantive is governed by another word implying measure, iveight, number, or quantity, as: Una hottiglia di vino a bottle of wine. Una quantitd di zucchero a great deal of sugar. The Plur. II maestro di sciiqla the school-master. Adjectives denoting the material of which a thing is made are rendered by substantives with di, as: Un anello d'qro a gold ring.
The nominative and accusative case of this par- titive form are always alilce. The student would be entirely wrong in saying as in French: pgco di birra, little beer, poco being in such a case considered as an adjective. The usual manner of rendering such expressions does not differ from English. Thus: little money poco danaro; little beer poca birra; much gold, mdlto gro; many books niolti libri, etc.
See Part II: the Adjective. Ecco una bottiglia di vino. Egli ha venduto due quintali di caffe. La regina aveva un gran nuniero di cavalli. Tu pensi sempre a balli e a concerti. Ho ricevuto questi libri da degli amici. Mia zia avra una dozzina di calze. Voi avrete un foglio di carta. II contadino aveva cinque buoi, dieci cavalli e una quantita di porci. Egli ha bevuto troppo too much vino. Voi avrete un orologio d'oro. II vicino ha comprato dieci chili di cioccb- lata chocolate. Ho ricevuto una lettera e una scatola da mia zia.
Abbiamo veduto una moltitudine di persone. I shall have some pens. Thou wilt have a sheet of paper. She will have some pencils. We shall have a glass of wine.
My brother will have nothing good. I shall also have a bottle of wine. I have drunk two glasses of water and a bottle of beer. We had received two kilograms of sugar, six kilograms of coffee, and ten litres of wine. You will have a great many looking-glasses and many boxes. The peasant has bought ten oxen and a wooden house.

The Italian language abounds in some endings that serve either to augment or diminish the original meaning of a word, and even in some cases to add an idea of contempt, affection, etc. These endings are added either to a substantive or an adjective, after the latter having dropped their last vowel.
By the addition of such endings, the word under- goes so many moditications that sometimes two and more English adjectives are not able to render the meaning expressed by them. Terminations Modifying the Meaning of Substantives. Un giovane means a youth; un gio- vangtto a smart young man. The diminutive endings afford a still greater va- riety of modifications.
A word, which is already a diminutive, may, by the addition of other diminutive syllables, express the most singular shades of the ori- ginal signification. Of all these different endings the following are those most in use': Augmentatives : 1. Referring to certain animals, this distinction is not so strictly observed; thus formica ant , formicone; ca- valla mare , cavallone. Casino signifies a cottage and a ballroom, but it has now degenerated to the far worse meaning of "women's tavern.
For instance: contadina countrywoman , contadingtta a fresh countrywoman ; giocanc young , giovanotto smart lad ; dquila eagle , aquilptto young eagle. Diminutives : 4. The ending —ino frequently serves in familiar conver- sation to denote a younger member of a noble family. Thus conte means count, and contessa countess, whereas contino and contessina mean the young count and the young countess.
Enricuzzo Harry, Blariuccia May. Other terminations of this kind are: a ciglia for substantives , as: plehdgUa populace. Was I? Egli e un medi- castro. Dove sono i libri di questo poetastro? Dove abita questo poverino? Egli sta in quella casuccia. Ho comprato un ombrellino per mia madre. Che cosa vuole wants questo vecchietto? II gigante aveva una barbetta ridicola. Egli era im povero fratuzzo. Gli stranieri erano nella barchetta del contadinello. Questo giovinotto e vostro cu- gino? Si, Signore, e mio cugino.

Che cosa hai perduto lost , Ho perduto il dauaro del mio poverina my poor girl? Apri open la tua manina! No, non voglio I will not! Che cosa pensi dost thou Egli e un pazzerello pazzo, think tu del tuo cuginetto? Proper Names. There are in Italian: 1. Names of countries, iwovinces, mountains, rivers.
As a rule, the former and the names of toivns have no article, whereas the latter usually take the definite article; being, of course, declined like all other sub- stantives, as : la Frdncia France, delta Frdncia of France, alia Frdncia to France, dalla Frdncia from France. Enrico from, by Henry. J jriulia Julia Gen. GiuUa from, by Julia. Firenze from Florence. Expressions like these must be rendered thus: II cappello di Guglielmo the hat of William ; il libro di Enrico the book of Henry ; la madre di Giulia the mother of Julia ; the nominative or accusative always preceding the genitive case.
To and in before proper names of countries are ren- dered by in, as: in Italia, to Italy, in Italy. To and at before names of towns must be translated with a sometimes ad before vowels , as: He goes to Paris, egli va a Parigi. He lives at Aix-la-chapelle egli dimgra ad Aqxdsgruna.
Further explanations will be given in the Second Part. Ecco le favole di Esopo. Date la scatola a Sofia. Date la penna ad En- rico. Ecco la casa della signora Camozzi. Siete stato a Vienna?

Avire to have avere avuto to have had.
As we hinted in one of the former lessons, the Italian verb does not always require the personal pronouns io, tu, egli, etc. For example: Xvete, have you? Aveste, had you? Avere also means to receive, to get, as : Avro del da- ndro I shall get some money. The negative, interrogative and negative-interrogative forms differ from the English, in so far as the negative lyar- ticle lion is always placed immediately before the verb. Thus, of. Io avevo I had Avevo I had Avevo io? Jo non avevo I had not Non avevo I had not Kon avevo io?
Had I not? No7i avevo? Had I not?! This mode of address is quite peculiar to the Italian language. Instead of Ella the accus. The Auxiliary Verb Avere. This word "Vossignoria" is now obsolete; the con- struction, however, remains, and is always employed, when a person is politely spoken to, as: Have you? Ha Ella? In mercantile style and in familiar conversation with foreigners the second person plural is used, as in English and French, as: Avete voi?
Have you avez-vous? Will you voulez-vous? The second person singular thou is used by relations and intimate friends, schoolfellows, comrades, etc. For ex. Hast thou have you? Will you? Avevi tu? Had you? Tenth Lesson. Tu avevi una casa. Egli ebbe due visile. Avra Ella domani un nuovo libro? U si- jiuoiv oho u'hoin Klla ha voduto iori da mio ouciuo. Avroi inausiiato la lui- nostra.

The compound tenses of this verb are formed with the auxiliary verb essere, as: io sono stato I have been liter.
I am been ; io sard stato I shall have been I shall be been. After se if , the Imperfetto del Congiuntivo or the Tra- passato del Congiuntivo must alwciys be used. When in English, after if, the Indicative mood is used, the same mood is required in Italian depending on se. After this latter even the Future tense can be used in Italian, if the action is a future one, just as after tvhen as soon as in English.
Se egli non ha lihri, non e contento. If he has no books, he is not contented. Se avrd danaro, cowprero una casa. When as soon as I shall have money, I shall buy a house. In order to become familiar with these verbs, the student is advised to conjugate them in the interrogative ho io? L'imperatore e magnanimo. La cupola di questa chiesa sara molto bella. Le colonne saranno alte. Sono- io stato paiiroso? No, non sei stato pauroso, ma canto.

I signori sono stati sul campanile.
In questa citta ci sono pochi alberghi, ma molte trattorie e molti caffe. Domani saremo a caccia coi cacciatori del conte. Meanwhile, you wait on him most generously! See that this giant never asks for wine, or he will straighten up your crooked bones. Of cheese and fruit he a big bundle found, and brought them to Morgante in a sack: voraciously they started the attack. Morgante went to ind a rick of straw, and leaned against it like an elephant. Nature, I so believe, made only one. The host replied that not for thirty miles around would they see any house or manger— a three-day journey not devoid of danger.
Margutte was not deaf and, hearing this, thought out a plan of wickedness at once. But now, to bed! But tell me: do you have by any chance a camel, all unharnessed, in your stable? If I am not mistaken, I saw one, but with no saddle and no yoke, it seemed. I know you do not have a bed for me where I may it and stretch out comfortably. Come arai tu moneta da cambiarci qualche dobbra da spender per la via? And would you have enough to change for us some doubles we may spend along the road? Someone may steal it. Say, would you, for another coin or two, bring me some butter? As ointment it would do.
I tell you Odi ribaldo! Odi malizia greca! Io sono ito e tornato, e tu il vedrai. Tu hai pur fatto, per Dio, netto e presto. And I will warn this entire family to save themselves from such calamity. The rogue! Now learn this newest Greek deceit! Alone, Margutte, by the candlelight, pretended, then, to tie himself most tight, and Mr. Sleep bade inally good night. I have been there and back, as you will see. You have been faster than I thought, God knows. Costui pur mena almen la mazza tonda. People began to come from everywhere: he and his wife escaped, but as a rule such are the things that happen to a fool.
By God, his noose has waited long enough. This is an art I always knew. Sleep had wanted to retire, doubtless by now awakened by the ire. Splitting his sides with laughter at his words and how he laughed when some details he heard! Be patient if some more you have to wait. At least this rogue spares no one as he works. Orlando will be pleased to meet this man— if ever I will see him once again.
Or mi piacesti tu, Margutte mio! Non vedi tu, babbion, che si tramuta e sgombera qua presso a un castello? Dicea Morgante: - Che farem, Margutte? Vedi che mancan qui le cose tutte. If steal you must, no predatory hawk or gypsy or Arab you need, other than me. For all you ever steal, be grateful never! For the irst time you see me, man, so clever.
There is no malice that is not my mate. I do my very best to shun a bruise, and then the red with yellow I confuse. Sleep of the inn. You are a bigger animal than this. Because of the long journey they were very hungry, but neither wine nor bread had they. You see, Margutte, nothing is in view. It seems a place where water can be found. Quando Margutte il vide sfavillare, disse: - Morgante, la cosa va gaia: forse che cotto lo potren mangiare. But look! From far away a unicorn appeared, in search of rills to slake his thirst. Look there! I think that unicorn is coming here to drink.
Hide and stay hidden till he gets down here and quenches with his thirst our hunger, too. How handy is that lame! Allor Morgante ridendo favella: - Guarda se fuor le faville ti caccio. Per Dio, tu mangeresti una balena! Io rido che tu vai leccando il legno. Set was the table long live the innkeeper! The beast was cooked, and they sat down to sup. Morgante gulped down nearly all of it, so that Margutte hardly tasted it. By God, you could devour an entire whale! This throat of yours is never sated, eh? In everything I want you as a mate except when we sit down before a plate.
Disse Morgante: - Se quel non si spegne per istanotte, io mi chiamo contento. E la cammella si pasceva intorno. So let me tell you now, once and for all: I want my share, down to a fennel stalk, even if I have to split a ig with you, or but a chestnut or a mouse or frog! But now just poke the ire, which is dead. Now since each song contests a previous one, what followed next will be in my next rhyme: Our Father we shall praise in the meantime. He briely attended Harvard University in the early s, then published three books of verse the irst two at his own expense and the third subsidized by friends between and As a result, Robinson gained fame and a government sinecure and thereafter wrote copiously and published frequently, winning an unprecedented three Pulitzer Prizes in the s.
His hard-edged style was a major step toward the Modernist turn against the sentimentality of much nineteenth- century verse. Several of his book-length narrative poems were popular in their time, but it is on his shorter works—precisely written, psychologically acute, and sensitively sympathetic to the outcast and downtrodden—that his permanent reputation rests. Terence Hegarty was born in Dublin, Ireland, in and spent his childhood and early teenage years there. In he moved with his family to New York. A proliic songwriter and singer and musician as well as a poet, he performs frequently and has issued twelve CDs of his own music, the most recent of which are Reimagine and Demon Lover Working for many years as a writer, editor, and proofreader for publications in the social sciences, he has lived in New York both the city and upstate and Washington, D.
And he was rich—yes, richer than a king— And admirably schooled in every grace: In ine, we thought that he was everything To make us wish that we were in his place. So on we worked, and waited for the light, And went without the meat, and cursed the bread; And Richard Cory, one calm summer night, Went home and put a bullet through his head. Cliff Klingenhagen Cliff Klingenhagen had me in to dine With him one day; and after soup and meat, And all the other things there were to eat, Cliff took two glasses and illed one with wine And one with wormwood.
Then, without a sign For me to choose at all, he took the draught Of bitterness himself, and lightly quaffed It off, and said the other one was mine. And when I asked him what the deuce he meant By doing that, he only looked at me And smiled, and said it was a way of his. Insomma, per noi era tutto quello che Volevamo per essere al suo posto.
Let the man go: let the dead lesh be dead, And let the worms be its biographers. Flood, we have the harvest moon Again, and we may not have many more; The bird is on the wing, the poet says, And you and I have said it here before. Drink to the bird. Flood, Since you propose it, I believe I will.
Lasciatelo: lasciate che la carne morta morta sia, E che siano i vermi a scrivere la sua biograia. La strada era deserta, nessun paesano in giro. Flood, we have not met like this In a long time; and many a change has come To both of us, I fear, since last it was We had a drop together. Welcome home! Flood, if you insist, I might. Flood— For auld lang syne. No more, sir; that will do. He raised again the jug regretfully And shook his head, and was again alone.
There was not much that was ahead of him, And there was nothing in the town below— Where strangers would have shut the many doors That many friends had opened long ago. Sii il benvenuto! Basta, basta signore. Later that momentous night, In the dark hotel room, Valerie asked Why he had chosen to act. From the edge Of sleep he gave her a smart answer. Richard Ordway was asleep. How very modish this all is, she thought. His passage. His highly skilled bid for blind Stumbling freedom; what an eficient use Of lovely, intelligent me. He must have had his anxious moments As he tested her caliber and stability, Gradually informing her by various levities And conidences what he needed her for.
He had delayed to let the truth sink in; She saw that now. She saw how much more This all might have hurt had he acted too soon. Al limite Del sonno, le diede una risposta intelligente. Ma forse che non aveva funzionato?

Some other three relived the centuries of rain Before their local railway conveyed them all to pain. Then was there water only lowing down their throats, And food abundant then as long as men had boats. Those days were seven hundred miles behind, alas, And, dry as always, three just made it to the pass And laid their bundles down before the gates of Flush. The bardo proved intractable, and made them mush. The three I knew the least stayed by me to the maze. Invariable they remained their lease of days. Where that voracious vine of glass and mirrors grows Their contract shattered like a cryogenic rose.
Altri tre hanno rivissuto i secoli di pioggia Prima che la ferrovia locale li portasse tutti verso il dolore. I tre che conoscevo di meno erano rimasti con me al labirinto. Non cambiarono minimamente, per il resto dei loro giorni. Faceva un freddo pungente, e in una nuvola di vapore gelato Sparirono tutti e si trasferirono in un sogno, Mi abbandonarono ai ghiaccioli che mi bruciavano il volto, Tutti scomparsi e mi hanno rinchiuso in questo posto duro [e freddo.
No more tempting me on Brooklyn Heights, you brightness of brightness out in the bay. Now the light is gone out of you, I see nothing at last but that blinding treaty. Boys, I see it now, scared or looking for trouble. I was right then to aim and shoot straight. But that Stater who fell changed nothing. They learn of the brood of educated misers I gave to Long Island and San Francisco, but not how I murdered and served time before the long schooling began.
Forty years I sleepwalked near Manhattan, seven children a tender dream and gone. Why did I ever carry a gun? Castleblayney o Tullow, o qualche altro capolinea, di sicuro mi darai uno scossone e mi farai scendere. I sacchi di sabbia, le mitragliatrici, non sono ancora [sparite. Ragazzi, adesso li vedo, spaventati o in cerca di guai. Ho fatto bene allora a prendere la mira e spara dritto. Gli occhi ce li ho ancora, e vedo pecore dappertutto in questa terra sonnacchiosa.
Gli parlo di quel branco di taccagni istruiti che ho regalato a Long Island e a San Francisco, ma non di come ho ucciso e sono andato in prigione prima che iniziasse la mia lunga educazione.
Opera in tre atti
The victim spun or crumpled, there was some blood and usually a twisted face. So they changed the way they regarded pain. From time to time some of them caused pain, and more than likely most of them suffered it; but not in most cases lesh-ripping bullets or smashed heads. These images they just carried to lunch, to work, and to bed. And no pictures moved of millions really dying, millions tortured anywhere but in the living room.
Each watching, unseeing soul a dusty iber from an old rope, inally a haze of ininitesimal particulate matter in the air everywhere. Queste immagini se le portavano soltanto a pranzo, al lavoro, e a letto. E le immagini di milioni che morivano per davvero, di [milioni di torturati non si muovevano da nessuna parte, eccetto [che in soggiorno.

She is a poet, short story writer and blogger www. Chris Price — a poet, editor and educator — was born in Read- ing, England, in , and immigrated to Auckland, New Zealand, in The smooth and sincere tone of her verse, however, is deceivingly endearing: the reader, in fact, is presented with events and emotions that do not leave one unengaged and uncommitted.
Even a small sample of poems like this is suficient to illustrate why Chris Price is so highly regarded among contemporary New Zealand poets.

Swan Song Imagining transcendence we pinned the wings of swans to the blunt nubs of our shoulder-blades grafting it on. Although in time they grew large enough to give our bodies levity our laggard minds took longer. Neural runways unrolled slowly, so at irst we mastered simpler stuff. It changed the way we slept. Feather beds demand too much re-making: instead we turned face down, or on our sides under downy blankets.
