Sienkiewicz, Henryk, Curtin, Jeremiah


For most readers this book will have a double interest: the interest attaching to a picture of Polish life, and the general human interest inseparable from characters like those presented in the narrative of Pan Stanislav's fortunes.The Poles form a part of the great Slav race, which has played so important a role in the world's history already, and which is destined to play a far more important one yet in the future.The argument involved in the career and meditations of Pan Stanislav is of interest to every person in civilized society; it is an argument presented so clearly, and reinforced with such pointed examples, that neither comment nor explanation is needed.Henryk (Adam Alexander Pius) Sienkiewicz (1846-1916) was a novelist, born in Wola Okrzejska, Poland. He studied at Warsaw, traveled in the USA, and in the 1870s began to write articles, short stories, and novels. His major work was a war trilogy about 17th-c Poland, beginning with Ogniem i mieczem (1884, With Fire and Sword), but his most widely known book is the story of Rome under Nero, Quo Vadis? (1896), several times filmed, notably in 1951 by Mervyn Le Roy (1900-87). He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905. Jeremiah Curtin translated this authorized, unabridged edition from the Polish.Sienkiewicz, Henryk is the author of 'Children of the Soil' with ISBN 9781589635555 and ISBN 1589635558.
