Struwwelpeter – Shock headed Peter

Heinrich Hoffmann (1809-1894) - Traduzione di Mark Twain

Struwwelpeter Shock headed Peter

Let’s read together: Struwwelpeter by Heinrich Hoffmann

In the translation of Mark Twain

See this frowsy “cratur”
Pah! it’s Struwwelpeter
On his fingers rusty,
On his two-head musty,
Scissors seldom come;
Lets his talons grow a year
Do any loathe him? Some!
They hail him “Modern satyr –
Disgusting Struwwelpeter.”


Other translation “Shock headed Peter”

Just look at him! there he stands,
With his nasty hair and hands.
See! his nails are never cut;
They are grimed as black as soot;
And the sloven, I declare,
Never once has combed his hair;
Anything to me is sweeter
Than to see Shock-headed Peter.
