Charles Leland

English Gipsy Songs In Rommany: With Metrical English Translations is a book written by Charles Leland. The book contains a collection of traditional songs sung by the English Gipsy community in the Rommany language, also known as Romani. The Rommany language is a language spoken by the Romani people, who are a nomadic group that originated in India and migrated to Europe in the 14th century. The book includes the original Rommany lyrics of the songs, as well as a metrical English translation of each song. The translations are written in rhyming verse and aim to capture the spirit and meaning of the original Rommany lyrics. The songs in the book cover a wide range of themes, including love, loss, and the joys and struggles of the Gipsy way of life. Some of the songs are accompanied by notes and commentary by the author, providing historical and cultural context for the lyrics. English Gipsy Songs In Rommany: With Metrical English Translations is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the Romani culture and language, as well as for those who appreciate traditional folk music.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
