Synopsis: Two volume set, in modern translation by W. S. Kuniczak. Following on the success of With Fire and Sword, this second book of the classic Sienkiewicz Trilogy thunders across the vast historical canvas of Eastern Europe in the 17th Century, and its grest human message of war, struggle, love, betrayal and redemption rings just as powerful today as it did when it was first published in 1886. Set against the bloody background of the Swedish invasion of 1655-1657.
About the Author: Henryk (Adam Alexander Pius) Sienkiewicz (1846-1916) was a novelist, born in Wola Okrzejska, Poland. He studied at Warsaw, travelled 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.

Book Description Copernicus Society of America, Fort Washington, 1998. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. New Edition.. 1761 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. FICTION. A literary masterpiece, that sweeps across the plains and forests of Poland, Lithuania and Prussia in an epic tale of treasons, faith, selfishness, sacrifice and heroic valor, set against the bloody background of the Swedish invasion of 1655-1657, in an uncanny parallel to the events occurring during World War II, when an exploited and exhausted Poland threw off the yoke of foreign domination, reacquired freedom, and opened the doors to liberty in East and Central Europe. Told by a master storyteller who won the Nobel Prize for Literataure in 1905, this scorching tale of battles, passions, and intrigues is the structural and thematic heart of this Trilogy. Translated into English from the Polish by W.S. Kuniczak. "One of the most glorious epic journeys in literature . . . the famous chapters about the siege of the monastery of Jasna Gora and its deliverance by the Polish people and the Black Madonna of Czestochowa form one of the world's greatest war stories." -- D.J.R. Bruckner, The New York Times Book Review (Key Words: Polish History, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Poland, W.S.
