Bu haftanın başında, otobüs yolculuğum sırasında Papersense Yayınevi ”İlk Tercümeler” serisinden Henryk Sienkiewicz’in orijinal adı Lux in Tenebris Lucet olan Mızıkacı Yanko ve Kamyonka adlı iki hikayesini okudum.

Bir Ahmet Rasim çevirisi olması ve onunla ilgili bölümü sevgili Erkan’ın yazmış olduğunu görmek de okurken hoş bir sürpriz oldu. Sonundaki S.C. de Soissons yazısı sayesinde de acilen “Quo Vadis?” okumak istiyorum.

I remember reading those stories in elementary school. I love mr Sienkiewicz. Yanko the Musician is a very sad story about a poor boy that wanted to play violin, unfortunately the violin brought his demise.

Kolejna nowela Henryka Sienkiewicza o trudnej sytuacji dzieci w dziewiętnastym wieku. Jednak takie nowele zostały mi obrzydzone w liceum i nadal nie mam ochoty ich czytać.

Biedna sierota Janko jest "bohaterem" tego opowiadania. Wyglada mi na to, ze Sienkiewicz probowal zajac role w literaturze polskiej podobna do roli Charlesa Dickensa.

Short stories about poor kids in end of 19th and beginning of 20th century. It was forced into me in primary school and I'm not boing to re-read it.
