"Ozvath and Turner's translation gives modern readers a glimpse of what Goethe's contemporary audience must have felt upon first reading the work. The verse form rhythmically draws us along, singing to us an ancient ballad, while the characters stir our hearts with full-fledged emotions we can recognize in our everyday lives." --The Arkansas International
