The Jews' Beech Tree: A Moral Portrait from Mountainous Westphalia
- Publish Date: 2014-03-31
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: Annette von Droste-Hlshoff
The book provides a sentence-by-sentence translation of Die Judenbuche (1842) by Annette von Droste-Hlshoff, arguably one of Germanys greatest female poets. Often thought of as a detective novel, The Jews Beech Tree is as much a mystery to read today as it was in 1842. Featuring the original German and the translated English side-by-side, this text also includes three critical introductions and two additional poetry translations.
