Overview

With Fire and Sword (Illustrated) by Henryk Sienkiewicz

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

At a time when the state of Poland was constantly undergoing political turmoil, Henryk Sienkiewicz wasn’t afraid to ruffle feathers. Having already achieved success in his career around the end of the 19th century, the Polish journalist negatively portrayed the Teutonic Order at a time in which his audience lived under German rule. At the same time, he meticulously included historical language in his works, a sort of celebration of authenticity and the past. He would earn a Nobel Prize in 1905 for "outstanding merits as an epic writer."

Sienkiewicz mastered historical novels that vividly put readers in places as distinct as 17th century Poland and Ancient Rome. He is still well regarded today for novels like "With Fire and Sword", "The Deluge", “Quo Vadis”, and "Fire in the Steppe".

This edition of Sienkiewicz’s With Fire and Sword is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Sienkiewicz.

This is really good story which shows how was it then ... I`m Polish and I had to read this book when I was at High School, but it wasn`t so easy. I read it but without understanding. When the film came I could finaly enjoy it. It`s a pity that the film is sooooo long .... at least may be a bit dull. The costiums and actors playing well.
