Overview

Quo Vadis, the record-breaking international bestseller for which Henryk Sienkiewicz won the fifth Nobel Prize for Literature, is as compelling today as the moment it was written. An epic saga of love, courage, and devotion in the last days of the Roman Empire, it portrays the corruption and debauchery of Nero's rule alongside the agony and glory of early Christianity.

Written over a century ago and translated into over 40 languages, Quo Vadis has been the greatest best-selling novel in the history of literature. "Sienkiewicz wrote Quo Vadis for the entire world and the world took it to its heart," commented James Michener.

Now, in a sparkling new translation which restores the original glory and splendor of this masterpiece, W.S. Kuniczak, the most acclaimed translator of Sienkiewicz in this century, combines his special knowledge of Sienkiewicz's fiction with his own considerable talents as a American novelist.

    Amazing

    It's like a breath of fresh air to finally read something that is morally satisfying. The book is written beautifully with vivid descriptions and powerful characters. It's a book that'll inspire you.

    A Magnificent Epic

    This book has all the themes that make classical literature great. Proportionately dispersed action and romance, life and death, heroes and villains that come to life or face their fate with each turn of the page. This book is one of the reasons the Nobel prize for literature should exist. A epic in every sense of the word.
