ok, I think I can pretty safely say that this will be the strangest request posted all week, but here goes. The above graphic contains text that serves as sort of a prologue to TS Eliot’s poem “The Wasteland.”
Obviously it’s in Latin with the quotations in Greek. I’d like to know how to repeat this entry out loud, but not surprisingly I dont have the slightest idea how to pronounce the greek in it.
Nor do I know windows’ character map well enough to attempt to type the words into google with “english translation” next to it, and I cant think of any other ideas. Can anyone transliterate this for me? To be clear, I’m NOT interested in the english translation, just the phoenetic spelling of the pronunciation.
As strange as this is, I actually give it a pretty good shot of getting an answer on a website this big. For the curious among you, this is the translation:
“I saw with my own eyes the Sibyl at Cumae hanging in a jar, and when the boys said to her, Sibyl, what do you want? she replied I want to die.”
Thanks in advance
