Book excerpt/Synopsis: The book provides a sentence-by-sentence translation of Die Judenbuche (1842) by Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, arguably one of Germany’s greatest female poets. Often thought of as a detective novel, The Jews’ Beech Tree is as much a mystery to read today as it was in 1842. Featuring the original German and the translated English side-by-side, this text also includes three critical introductions and two additional poetry translations.
