Overview

Originally published in 1942, this book contains English verse translations of national ballads from the First Serbian Uprising of 1804 to 1813. The text concentrates its attention on the revolt of the Serbs under Karađorđe Petrović against the Turks, an area of the literature concerning the Uprising which had previously found no English translator. A detailed introduction is also provided, illustrating the importance of the selected ballads and the historical context of their creation. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the First Serbian Uprising and the cultural history of The Balkans.
