Canis et Lupus: The Dog and the Wolf


This is a fable about being poor and free, as opposed to being trapped by a life of luxury and servitude.  It is indexed as Perry 346, which you can learn more about here at the wiki and at Aesopica.net, and also at Delicious.


Here is my very simple version for TarHeelReader. You can view the slideshow at TarHeel (also in English), or watch the video from the Aesop Ning below:

Canis et Lupus

Ecce Lupus!

Ecce silva!

Lupus domum habet in silva.

Lupus in silva cibum quaerit.

Non multum cibum ínvenit.

Lupus macer est.

Quam macer Lupus est!

Ecce Canis!

Canis domum habet in urbe.

Canis Dómino servit.

Dóminus cibum Cani dat.

Dóminus multum cibum Cani dat.

Canis pinguis est.

Quam pinguis Canis est!

Canis Lupo occúrrit.

CANIS: "Salve, amíce!"

LUPUS: "Salve, amíce!"

LUPUS: "Mirátus sum: quam pinguis es tu!"

LUPUS: "Cibum semper quaero, sed saepe non invénio."

LUPUS: "Unde tantum cibum habes tu?"

CANIS: "Dóminus meus cibum mihi dat."

CANIS: "Cibum mihi dat de mensa sua!"

LUPUS: "Sed vídeo in collo tuo cicatríces."

LUPUS: "Unde cicatríces in collo habes?"

CANIS: "Mi amíce, hoc nihil est."

CANIS: "Intérdum me álligant caténa."

CANIS: "Caténa cicatríces mihi in collo facit."

LUPUS: "Quam miser es tu, Canis!"

LUPUS: "Cibum habes."

LUPUS: "Sed cibus servitútis est."

LUPUS: "Vale, mi amíce!"

LUPUS: "Volo vívere in libertáte, non in servitúte."
