BOOKS OF THE DAY

'he Triumph of Youth, by Jacob
sserman, translated from the Ger-
n by Otto P. Schinnerer. Boni and
eright, New York, $2.50.
his is the first of Wasserman's
sral historical novels to be trans-
d into the English language. It
ifferent, different from most books
are given to the American reader,
for that reason most enjoyable
ding.
he book is half a fairy story, half
istorical novel, the relating of the
its in'the life of a boy endowed
1i the gift of poetry and a powerful
gination. The story takes place
Germany during the third decade
he 17th century.
* is a story, of those dark days
a every outstanding person, wbleth-
easant, freeman or noble, was in
ger of being accused of witchcraft,
of the day when accusation meant
viction and death in the flames; of
,e days when the odor of burned
ises was always lingering in the
osphere.
h young Baron Ernest, the central
r4 of the story, is accused of witch-
t in the course of events, because
is genius for telling stories and
,use he dared to tell his uncle, the
op, that he disagreed with the
ey of burning witches, whom he
n'ot believe were in communion
. the devil. Here Wasserman ana-
s the thoughts of the lad and re-

veals an interesting study of his in-
ner nature.
Then to climax the story, a rebel-
lion of the children of the district
rescues the young Baron from death.
The rebellion symbolizes the ever
talked of "revolt of youth" against'
the dogmatism of the older genera-
tion, and here is used against the
church.
Wasserman, in his ever enjoyable
style, has painted a picture of the
age that gives the reader food for
,though. Thoughts of what his an-
cestors lived through, the horror of
their days and sleepless nights. It
may well make one thankful that he
was born in the present rather than'
in those dismal days of the 17th cen-]
tury.
The author has given us a book
that is lacking the us.ual love story of
the modern, trite American novel, and
yet the book is not lacking in passion..
There is not present the winning of
a beautiful maid, but rather the win-
ning of an ideal; not the overcoming
of hostile suitors, butthesovercoming
of foolish, inhuman ideas.
This production of the pen of Jacob
Wasserman is a most entertaining
book. It is not the equal of "The'
World's Illusion," but at that it is
written by the same author, and is
better than the trash one must read
if he amuses himself with the products
of the present day American authors.
