In its 125-year history the international language Esperanto has produced some remarkable writing. Much of this has remained unknown to the English-speaking world: translations were few and to be found, in the main, in Esperanto periodicals. Now, for the first time, in Star in a Night Sky, some of these translations appear in a single volume. They are joined by many new translations which, together, through prose, poetry and drama, and explanatory notes, tell the story of Esperanto from its publication in 1887, its hopes and aspirations, its persecution under fascism, to its acknowledgment as a literary language as attested by its candidates for the Nobel Prize in Literature
