Editorial Review
Kossovo: Heroic Songs of the Serbs is a collection of epic poems from Serbia, translated from the original language in 1920 by Helen Rootham. The book includes a touching Introduction written by the English poet and translator Maurice Baring. Each poem is written in its original Serbian, juxtaposed with the English translation on the opposite page. It will prove to be a useful guide for any student of ancient literature or the Serbian language. HELEN ROOTHAM, born 1875, was an aspiring British poet who translated the works of French poet Arthur Rimbaud in addition to epic Serbian poems. In 1903 she was commissioned as the governess of British poet Edith Sitwell, a position she retained until her death in 1938.
