English of a work like the present, it is necessary to understand that a broad gulf separates the Hungarian Magyar language from theE nglish and all other European languages. Not even of A ryan origin, its construction can not be explained according to the principles of A ryan languages and its conciseness and strength cannot be transferred. This is not an apology, it is the statement of a fact. To produce, even approximately, the sense of an expression, it is frequently necessary to render one Hungarian word into five or six of any other European language; hence the gigantic difficulty of translating a masterpiece of Hungarian literature into any A ryan language must of necessity be greater than that of translation from a kindred idiom. In theM agyar, the most perfect of all the Turanian languages, there has been produced a great literature, much of which is practically unknown outside of Hungary.
