This is such a wonderful and important project! I wonder if there will be recordings of these translations. It would be great to hear all of these voices. Thank you. Stacey

Emma Lazarus's immortal sonnet is the perfect poem for multiple translation -- the perfect start to the program. The statue was installed in 1886 with Grover Cleveland presiding. Lazarus wasn't there. When she died in 1889, no one foresaw the posthumous glory of her lines. -- DL

Please see here, by Gunter Plessow, from Germany, into German and back again, transformationally, into English.

Thanks. The beauty of Emma Lazarus's sonnet is the vision of America it conveys.

Every day in every way I'm getting better and better. Got it?
