Description  more details

In the series of "European Classics", translated from the Polish by Bill Johnston, one of the best Polish novels. "It is a complex, dramatic, masterfully told story in which a passionate love affair is played out against a background of wartime privations, and the Polish struggle for independence is set against other conflicts of gender, sexuality, and class. (-) This exquisitely constructed and lyrical novel is set in a rambling manor house in central Poland during the doomed January Uprising of 1863 to 1864, when a volunteer Polish army futilely fought the Russian occupation of the eastern partition."
Northwestern University Press Evanston, IL 1999, 179 pages (soft cover)
