*Scratches head* Alright...
I'm reading this one in Spanish for two reasons:
- It's closer to the original Italian. Logic says translation should work better (I'm crossing my fingers).
- It is a book infamous for being a difficult read. I read about 1 in 20 books in my mother tongue now, usually those originally published as such, or copies I own jointly with mom, but early grasp of a language is never to be discounted as an advantage in understanding.
I'm one page in and I already fired a notes-file to untangle that first paragraph. And my understanding of Latin only extends to what I can elucidate from modern similar words.
This will be a challenge
