Italian to English translations [PRO]
Art/Literary - Poetry & Literature / quote from Thomas Mann
Italian term or phrase: Extract from Buddenbrook, part 1. Ch.6
Does anyone have an English translation? Part needed:
«Thomas, figlio mio, sii gentile,» disse Johann Buddenbrook e trasse il grosso mazzo delle chiavi dalla tasca dei pantaloni. «Nella seconda cantina a destra, secondo scaffale, dietro al Bordeaux rosso: due bottiglie, sai?» E Thomas, che era bravo in simili incarichi, corse via e tornò con le bottiglie coperte di polvere e di ragnatele. Ma non appena da quei recipienti modesti sgorgò nei bicchieri piccoli da dessert il succo dolce e dorato del vecchio Malvasia, giunse per il pastore Wunderlich il momento di alzarsi, e, mentre la conversazione taceva, egli levò il bicchiere e cominciò il brindisi con frasi piacevolmente tornite.
