A Polish oculist, Dr. Ludovic L. Zamenhof, created Esperanto in the hopes of helping the world solve its problems by communicating in a single, apolitical language. Originally, the language was designated "La Internacia Lingvo" (The International Language), but it quickly came to be called "Esperanto", meaning "the hopeful one". Dr. Zamenhof published the first textbook of this language (called "Unua Libro" or "First Book") in 1887.
