    I am searching for the origin (English and Latin or Italian) for the following (paraphrased) piece from Orlando Furioso (Ludivico Aristo):

    "It is small and suitable for (me) and bought with (my) own money. It is home."

    I would be grateful if someone could help me find the original source in both English and Latin and exactly where it comes from.

    Many thanks

    Found this reference on google re: Lirica 232 from Rime ??: https://books.google.com/books?id=cs...20home&f=false

    The quote: ""It may be small but it ot offensive or ugly; and I paid for it money"... Italian perhaps (from google translate): "
    "Può essere piccolo ma offensivo o brutto, e ho pagato per soldi"

    still searching...

    Hi,
    I am basically a medical professional with lot of interest in reading literature and social work. I do write poetry in Kannada, an ancient language actively indulged by people of Karnataka, a province in India. I have a publication to my credit- a collection of 33 poems 2 years ago.
    I am here to envision & exchange info/ and similarities in expressive thoughts of Contemporary world literature.
    Enough for the Day ,my friend.

    Hello all! I'm a newcomer here!

    Hello all! I'm a newcomer here! It's nice to share everybody's precious views. There is a place to introduce yourself. I say a big Hello to all. My hobbies are simple: easy reading, Asia foods, and some swimming. I haven't enough time for other activities - I'm a student. I'm a strange girl, because of my interest in Hemingway's books. I like his A Farewell to Arms... $-))

    Hello, my name is Privada, I live in Canada, and I'm a father of three. I'm mostly interested in Russian literature and Classics, but overall I'm not too picky in what I read. If it looks good, I'll read it. I'm sure I'll get to know many of you inside the forums, so what I'll do first is read up on the site's rules, and get myself acquainted with the place before I start posting. All the best, Privada.




    *Note to Staff* My apologies, I started a new thread without realizing that new members were posting in here instead of creating a new thread; If a staff member would like to delete that thread, by all means; I won't be offended. I just went ahead and posted what I did there, in here. Thank you.

    Hello!

    I am Isabella; I live in America and am on the brink of entering university. I recently got back into seriously reading after many months of being a disinterested, occasional reader (mostly for classes); it feels good to dive into literature again of my own accord, and I am enthused. I can enjoy anything, any genre, from classic to contemporary, as long as the writing is good, though I am a bit uninformed when it comes to mystery, or science fiction.

    Would really love to make some friends and have interesting discussions.

    Hello, I came upon this website by chance as I was searching for information about a novel called Blind Windows that was allegedly the inspiration for Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. I'm a huge duMaurier fan and I came across an interesting post about the interpretations of the story and the (un?)reliability of the narrator. I've written fan fiction about Rebecca and I did put a different twist on things, so I was interested to explore other readers' perceptions. I know Daphne DuMaurier admired strong women and as Rebecca was clearly her 'own woman' I thought the author must have some measure of empathy with this.
