Portre of Mare, Walter de la
Portre of Somlyó György

Back to the translator

Napoleon (English)

'What is the world, O soldiers?

       It is I:

I, this incessant snow,

This northern sky;

Soldiers, this solitude

Through which we go

       Is I.'

Napóleon (Hungarian)

„Mi hát a világ, katonák?

    Én vagyok;

e hómezők, e ködbetűnt

egek, e zord fagyok;

katonák, ez a pusztaság,

amelyben elveszünk,

    ez Én vagyok."
