Sebaldi Heyden Formulae Puerilium Colloquiorum

Sebaldi Heyden Formulae Puerilium Colloquiorum

The poet and musicologist in Sebald Heyden emerges in these twenty-seven dialogues, every line of which (except one) consists of eight or fewer syllables.  But Heyden's boyish cheek is  also apparent: some favorite moments include an early reference to double-dipping (dialogue 16), bickering about "same seats" (dialogue 20), a boy's being taunted for suggesting marbles instead of a jump-off during a free afternoon (dialogue 19), and this deliciously memorable line, delivered to a partner in crime upon the schoolmaster's approaching: "Vae nostris natibus!"--"Woe to our butt-cheeks!" (dialogue 18).
