Date: February 19, 2014, 18:00YE Bookstore and Sribne Slovo Publishing House have the pleasure to invite to the meeting with the writer, translator, expert in antiquity and the new book One hundred riddles from Symfosii. Latin translation, commentary and essays of Andrii Sodomora. The event will take place on February 19.
Beginning at 18:00In this edition the Riddles by Latin author Symfosii are translated for the first time in a full scope to show that a person should perceive the world of things and the natural world with some surprise. Knowledge induces thought, but astonishment induces its realisation. Such thoughts are realised in the essays and commentaries of Andii Sodomora; if to think in terms of genre they are the continuation of the Naodyntsi zi slovom essays (1999). The three dots at the end of each comment indicate the openness of the text, an invitation to step onto a mysterious bridge that connects spiritual worlds... Today riddles are thought to be mostly for children. Following in ancient authors' footsteps, Andrii Sodomora offers both grown-ups and children the chance to engage themselves in an unexpected intellectual game: recognize a word having a number of associations and hints only, interpret everyday life objects in the different way. A river and a tree, a rain, smoke, ice, an animal and a man, his mood and invention, in this book they all get some new unexpected interpretation thanks to the ancient author and the translator.
