Pan Tadeusz


“Pan Tadeusz” begins just as Napoleon is preparing to invade Russia. It tells the story of two feuding families and the young lovers caught in the middle. A sultry coquette stands in the way of a beautiful young maiden and her smitten soldier, while opposing families waste precious bullets fighting each other rather than Russia, their occupier enemy. Woven into the historic tapestry are memorable characters such as corrupt Russian soldiers, fearless Polish swordsmen, wise old men and even a mysterious monk, who prays piously even as he shoots with deadly aim. Adam Mickiewicz (1798 – 1855) wrote “Pan Tadeusz” while exiled in France. His homeland was occupied by Russia, where he would not have had the freedom to write this ode to Polish history and heritage. His great work remains today required reading in Polish schools. This English version was translated by George Rapall Noyes in 1917. He wrote it in prose rather than the original poem structure, but it retains all the grand sweep of historical detail, rich cultural references and romantic passions of a time when Napoleon coveted Russia and Poles desired their freedom.
