An Internet Curiosity… Posted by on Oct 26, 2009 in Esperanto Language

In hopes of procuring some good Halloween reading for the lot of you, I went on a search for an Esperanto copy of Bram Stoker’s Dracula online. I wasn’t successful…Perhaps a translation of the classic Victorian horror is order? However, I did stumble across a curious Esperanto document that nobody would have expected to appear on Project GutenbergU.S. President Barack Obama’s inaugural address!

I remember witnessing the speech on television, and admiring its message and presentation. From what I can tell, the Esperanto translation has tried to preserve the mood of the speech. It also reads like a transcript, and so it indicates via stage directions where there were breaks for audience applause. Give it a read – if only to know that people are still actively translating into Esperanto for the present day!
