227pp. A very good clean, tight copy. Translated by Grace Rhys. Translated into English from a German language edition and mildly Bowdlerised by the translator to meet with her impression of British sensibility. "Rainis has poured all the passions of the persecuted exile into his study of Joseph. But he is dramatist par excellence, which means he can enter into the soul of every one of his characters, animating them towards their actions from within." (G. Rhys) "in this translation at least the symbolism is muddled, the dialogue unnatural and wooden, and the characters definitely and from the beginning dead." (Welsh Outlook 1924)
