Henryk Sienkiewicz is universally recognized as the greatest Polish novelist and one of the very few masters of romance — a writer to be compared with Scott and Dumas in his story-telling gifts. In this novel, however. “Without Dogma“ he has followed the lead of most great novelists of the day and made a psychological study of a type of the century. His work bears somewhat the same relation to the intellectual and spiritual skepticism of era that brought us "Werther" did to the sickly sentimentality of the eighteenth century.

Although this is a "Novel of Modern Poland" and full of racial spirit and flavor, yet the hero is a man of the world; acquainted with the life of the capitals of Europe. He is a victim to the disease of analysis; introspection; lack not only of dogma but of faith in any activity. Yet he is capable of a great passion for another man‘s wife which by no means creates in is mind a merely philosophical mood.

As is the case with several other notable works of this kind, the story is told by means of a series of diary extracts and it is the record of emotion, thoughts, and impulses rather than of events.

Whether the book is an enjoyable one or not will depend entirely upon the mental state of the reader, but it is undoubtedly a distinctly strong and timely portrayal of a type very common in modern, over-refined human life.

The translation is by Iza Young and the original publisher, provide a brief but thoroughly interesting account of the famous author.
