'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

The following dissertation deals with the translation analysis of neological terms found in the fantasy novel, The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss, in relation to the Slovenian translation made by Sergej Hvala. In accordance with Newmark's theory of translation criticism, thirty-two terms and expressions have been selected. Since all terms are neological and the languages concerned are English and Slovenian, the translation process is expected to be easier when formation of new compounds is required, but more challenging in cases of single-word counterparts which should semantically correspond to the original term. The analysis proves that Slovenian is a flexible language, able to form and accept new coinages; however, the Slavic origin of the language, which seldom offers straight-forward solutions with complete semantic agreement, makes the translation procedure more difficult. The translator follows Newmark's rule of translating SL neologism with a TL neologism, and solves translation problems in an innovative way, only rarely applying the method of transference. The translation is very rich in terms of wordplay and thus enhances the reading experience.

Some of the words within these pages are for music, and not just the poetry. ‘The Wind In The Grass’ tells of an Elsa, a Jeanne, and mostly, a Barbara. They’re pages in a book, pushed along by an off -shore wind like the tall grass on the ‘true’ cape of Hatteras. There’s a boxer in the 30’s, a killing hurricane at sea, an imaginary French resistance fighter defending white wine. There’s the Viking, Teymor, a lost soul and a lost story before recorded history; and a brave little tugboat at Pearl Harbor. There are words of loneliness, of wanting and not wanting, and other words, gentle and direct. ‘The Wind In Th e Grass’ is for all of us who understand silence and those of us intimidated by it. Life does get in the way. It’s something we have to understand. As others rush by, it’s up to us to motion to them, beckon and wave. Slow down, we should say...come over here. Let’s sit and read together.
Eveyday is a blessing. Even when a storm approaches, life takes a turn but as God promised we will always see the rainbow after the storm, stretched out through the clouds. God knows what we can handle but sometimes we forget what God can handle. As a father to a son and a mother to a daughter, love and faith is so strong and merciful. God is mercy and love, gentle but strong, he brings joy and correction, and he comforts the soul and gives correction. I feel that God has brought me through the trails and walked with me through many stroms to see who I was before I could see that which is ahead. Love From Above Hear My Cry and now Redeem, In the Name of Love has centered my heart even more towards God and His Son, Jesus Christ. As much as we try to find love, as we try to live a perfect life, and as we try to become that prefect christian we find that we need God even more. God has blessed me with so much but I still fall short of His glory, my heart burns with the desire to love Him that loved me first. God told me to keep my eyes on him. I pray that God continues to use me and these poems to touch your heart as they have touched mine.
