title: The Awful German Language

+weight: 20
Learning German is hard. Twain got that like no other. This essay, originally an appendix in _The Tramps Abroad_, details his trials and trevails of trying to master _deutsch_, and was a great solace to me while attempting to do the same.

title: Easter Week
summary: A new translation of Chekhov shorts with accompanying engravings.
thumbnail: easter-10.jpg
+weight: 100
Two Chekhov stories--"The Student," and "On Easter Eve"--in new translation--courtesty of [Michael Henry Heim]( These stories are two favorites of mine--and I even read [somewhere][1] that "The Student" was Chekhov's own favorite. It's a spectacular update on the standard [Constance Garnett]( translations. Handprinted on a Vandercook Universal I from mint Dante types. The paper was smuggled in from Germany.

I published this small specimen book in two editions, German and English. Weiß designed a number of handsome typefaces that are still in use today. The Weiß Lapidar that appears on the title page below is especially handsome.

I first stumbled on "Todesfuge" while working in Nicaragau--and before I could read German. It was shocking, brutal, powerful. I read it in English, then in Spanish translation--parsing through the German as best I could. I've since learned German--or at least, learned German well enough to stumble through these.

After filling a couple of legal pads with grammar notes, I composed and printed this compendium to tuck in my jacket pocket. It's rife with errors, but I've found it useful.

This broadside was printed in Mainz, Germany, at the _Druckladen des Gutenberg Museums_. It's Rudolf Koch's Wallau, a _rundgotisch_ typeface, with elements of classic German blackletter and traditional roman capitals. Dan Reynolds has a whole lot more information [here](
