Yazar, gariban dostuymuş.

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.

İşte bu mezarı üstünde kayın ağaçları ötüşen Yanko ve sanatçı olmasaydı uğ

Yazarı Nobel Ödülü'nü almış Sienkiewicz'in, efsaneleşen romanı "Quo Vadis?" dışında kısa öyküleriyle karşılaşmak sevindirici. Üstelik Ahmet Rasim çevirisiyle. Osmanlıcada olup da modern Türkçede olmayan sayısız çeviri var, bunlara dönüp bakan yayınevi pek yok. Bir babil.com iştiraki olan Papersense bu zengin alana göz dikmiş görünüyor. Merak, şevk ve iştiyakla takip ediyoruz.

Çok güzel iki öykü ve daha çok Henryk Sienkiewicz okumaya heveslendiren güzel bir incelemeden mürekkep değerli bir kitap. Çevirisi muazzam, Ahmet Rasim okumaya heveslendiriyor.
Kağıdı, cildi çok güzel.

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.
