His short life was one long acted romance and his name has become a spell with which to conjure his whole race. He adds another to the long list of poets born to unhappiness and hardship, yet by mere force of intellect winning his way to a high rank among his contemporaries. The following translations were made by me a number of years ago at a time when I was studying the Magyar language and had a much better acquaintance with it than I to-day possess. Distrusting my present very slender knowledge of that powerful tongue, I have carefully compared them with the work of other translators in French, German and I talian, and offer them in the belief that they present a correct idea of the poet and his writings. HENRY PHILLIPS, JR. Philadelphia, 320 S. Eleventh St.
