The translations, specially created by Professor Gaston Hall, are remarkable in that they echo the metre, rhyme, and emotional content of Heine’s poems. The original German, the translation, and a selected Housman poem follow each other and the book is liberally illustrated by Robin Shaw’s evocative drawings.
