Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Jeremiah Curtin (1835-1906) was an American translator and folklorist. He graduated from Harvard College in 1863. In 1864 he went to Russia, where he worked as both a translator and for the U. S. legation. His specialties were his work with American Indian languages and Slavic languages. In addition to publishing collections of fairy tales and folklore and writings about his travels, Curtin translated a number of volumes by Henryk Sienkiewicz, including his Trilogy set in the 17th-century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a couple of volumes on contemporary Poland, and, most famously and profitably, Quo Vadis (1897). He also published an English version of Boleslaw Prus' only historical novel, Pharaoh, under the title The Pharaoh and the Priest (1902). His other works include: Myths and Folk-Lore of Ireland (1890), Tales of the Fairies and of the Ghost World (1895), Creation Myths of Primitive America (1898), A Journey in Southern Siberia (1909) and Seneca Indian Myths (1922).
