Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from Selected Poems
In 1861 he published a small volume entitled Serbski Pesme; or, National Songs of Servia. This was the result of a visit to Belgrade. He had been sent there on a diplomatic mission, and used the Opportunity to investigate the history, customs, and characteristics of the Servian people. With an ever eager curiosity in many branches of knowledge, poetry had always the foremost place with him, and he was pleased to have found a key to much of the national poetry of Servia in a prose translation by a Frenchman named Dozon. To him he referred the English public in his preface to Serbski Pesme, but in a letter to his father he admitted that this preface had been so hurriedly written and so ill considered as to suggest, by a sort of swaggering tone, that his own translations were from the Servian text. He had not, however, the remotest desire to conceal the fact that his Servian Songs were a free translation of a transla tion, and he openly avowed that they were not.
