Riassunto: The Highland Lute became enormously popular in the 1920s and 30s, with its vivid, archetypal characters and panoramic descriptions: the backdrop to Albania's historical battles for freedom and independence from the Turks and Montenegrins. It propelled its author, Gjergj Fishta, to universal recognition as the national poet of Albania until the Communists took power in 1944. On its first public recital in post-Communist Albania, 45 years later, many in the audience still knew parts by heart. Robert Elsie's masterful new translation, the first to appear in English, captures the spirit of the original and, accompanied by a new critical introduction, will introduce the poem to a new generation of admirers.
About the Author:
Gjergj Fishta (1871-1940) was lauded up until the Second World War as the ""national poet of Albania"" and as the ""Albanian Homer."" Robert Elsie is a leading specialist in Albanian affairs and is author of numerous books, including Albanian Literature: A Short History (I.B.Tauris and the Centre for Albanian Studies).
