The Untitled Adagia Project has been going on since 2005 or so, when I started to write deliberately fake translations of Erasmus’s Adagia. I took Latin in high school, but not much of it has been retained. But I like the idea of half-knowing the texts as I try to make them make sense to me.
I occasionally post aphorisms on @Adagia_Project on Twitter. Follow that for kicks.
Some excerpts were published Hotel Amerika’sSpecial Issue on Aphorisms in 2011. Here are some others:
“Adagia Project” excerpts, Esque Issue #2, 2011.
251-300 appeared in Shampoo #35.
51-100 appeared in PANK in 2008.
