Fabula: De Rustico et Silva



Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Barlow's Aesop: De Rustico et Silva, the story of the farmer who needed wood to make a handle for his axe. You can find out more about this fable - including grammar commentary and English translation - at the Aesopus.Ning.com website.
Accedebat silvam
Rusticus
et rogabat Arbores
ut sibi lignum concederent,
ex quo
ansam securis fabricaret.
Concedebant lignum illi
Arbores,
quod ad domum deportabat.
Quo mox ad securim adaptato,
ad silvam redibat
et omnes Arbores
ad unum detruncabat.
Here is the illustration of the fable by Francis Barlow:
