Set around the events of the succession struggle of 1142 in medieval Bohemia the main character, Witiko, the traditional founder of the Rosenberg Family, searches for the Right, finds it and his beloved, while never losing touch with the common folk. His quest is amid the panoramic backdrop of national Bohemian politics and history, with his fate paralleling that of the acknowledged rightful duke, Wladislaw, who is also seeking the path of justice. Witiko is considered one of the most significant German historical novels of the Nineteenth Century.
The Translator: Wendell Frye was born in 1940. He received his BA degree from Clark University, his M.A. from Middlebury College, and his Ph.D. from Indiana University. His field of specialization is German, and he is a Professor of German at Hartwick College.
