A Boy's Will
A Boy's Will: Webster's Spanish Thesaurus Edition | Robert Frost
2 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Spanish, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.

From “The Demiurge‘s Laugh”

“It was far in the sameness of the wood;/I was running with joy on the Demon‘s trail,.../The Demon arose from his wallow to laugh,/Brushing the dirt from his eye as he went;/And well I knew what the Demon meant./I shall not forget how his laugh rang out./I felt as a fool to have been so caught,.../Thereafter I sat me against a tree.”
