Adam Mickiewicz - Pan Tadeusz
THIS IS A LOVELY BOOK.
Pan Tadeusz (full title in English: Sir Thaddeus, or the Last Lithuanian Foray: A Nobleman's Tale from the Years of 1811 and 1812 in Twelve Books of Verse; Polish original: Pan Tadeusz, czyli ostatni zajazd na Litwie. Historia szlachecka z roku 1811 i 1812 we dwunastu księgach wierszem) is an epic poem by the Polish poet, writer and philosopher Adam Mickiewicz. The book was first published in June 1834 in Paris, and is considered by many to be the last great epic poem in European literature.
Pan Tadeusz is recognized as the national epic of Poland. It is compulsory reading in Polish schools. A film based on the poem was made in 1999 by Andrzej Wajda. It is written in Polish alexandrines.
THIS EDITION IS FROM 1950 I THINK. ITS A HUGE TOME WITH MANY MAGNIFICIENT FOLD OUT PRINTS DEPICTING SCENES FROM THE EPIC.
