Mediator between two cultures: Louis Adamic’s translation of Alojz Kraigher’s short story in to english

In 1924 Louis Adamic translated Aljoz Kraigher’s short story “Martin Klobasa”; his translation titled “Builders”, however, is an adaptation which on the one hand enabled Adamic to test his English where as on the other hand it proved that his understanding of literature was rather unique.
