Battle of Kossovo is a compilation of national Serbian songs on the events that happened in the Battle of Kossovo, combined into one "national" ballad. The poems are translated into English from the original Serbian, and the Introduction includes the history of the Battle of Kossovo as well as the history of Serbian ballads and poems. Students of epic poetry and ancient world literature will find this a fascinating read. ELODIE LAWTON MIJATOVIC (1825-1908) was a British author who translated Serbian works into English, wrote several English-language histories on Serbia, and translated national Serbian songs about the Battle of Kossovo into one Ballad, which she dedicated to Her Highness Nathalie, Princess of Serbia. When living in Boston in the 1850s, Lawton was a proponent of the American abolitionist movement. She married a Serbian politician and writer, Čedomilj Mijatović, in 1864.
