I grew up reading Borodino Mikhail Lermontov s romantic poem on the deadliest battle of the Napoleonic wars and along with War and Peace it formed a certain understanding of the time period in my head Now that I m starting to delve into Russia s imperial history and trying to understand the postcolonial circumstances all across the region I love looking at things from the other perspective And Pan Tadeusz in a fresh new translation by Bill Johnston is perfect for this purpose To see the struggle of the war of 1812 the European one you know through the eyes of the colonized by Russia was refreshing illuminating and very interestingI could have read it in Russian because I feel like the proximity between Polish and Russian languages offers insight into the original style but I like my translations of old texts to be as fresh as possible so I don t have to spend time being annoyed with the hubris of old time translators there s enough with the dead authors themselves That said Johnston s translation is remarkable because I felt like I was hearing Slavic rhyming throughout my reading experience I think this is uite an achievementThe text itself accomplished a lot epic and sweeping in its take it offered anything from the microcosm of a couple s relationship to a macrocosm of Poland s history and nature I m always iffy about nationalism and observed from the time of right wing sentiments on the rise in contemporary Poland it was sometimes hard to find distance between the praise for a nation state emerging from the constraints of colonialism in Mieckiewicz s verse from the sad aftermath of it we currently see in the 98% National majority country Also the numerous jabs at Jewishness irked me a ton Like I can picture some contemporary neo Nazi somewhere in Rzeszow reading Pan Tadeusz and be like hell yeah Although to be fair most of them read much dumber books and also the constant switch between Poland and Lithuania of the confederate years would probably be a bummerI will need to reread one day because I got completely lost in the huge cast of characters and surely missed some important in betweens But on the overall a great book that is very much worth reading to understand the contemporary world better

единство и подкрепа ?. 2018 English translation by Bill Johnston published by Archipelago Books Pan Tadeusz is the Polish classic the national epic In English there isn t a sole work with comparable stature and ubiuityGiven my heritage the way I d felt about not having read Pan Tadeusz was much as if I hadn t read or even really known the stories of Pride and Prejudice or Jane Eyre or Oliver Twist as soon as I could But I m also particular about translations I didn t want to read Tadeusz in an old translation with poor style It was easy not even to try given the disgraceful lack of Polish classics in UK bookshops and from major British publishers Pre internet I didn t even know of English translations and I ve certainly never seen one to browse in a shop or library whereas I stumbled on the Oxford edition of the Finnish national epic The Kalevala in a bookshop round about 2002 The sing song style of Kenneth Mackenzie s 1964 translation preview here if you scroll past the introduction was one I knew I could not enjoy nevermind love or recommend without apology Long seuences of obvious line end rhymes don t sound good in contemporary English worse than in some other languages Mickiewicz s hero and near contemporary Byron may have used them in English but a twentieth century translators aren t Byron and b I don t really like the sound of them in Byron anyway The lack of a great new translation of Pan Tadeusz in the late 00s 2010s had puzzled me given the current enthusiasm for translated books in the English speaking literary world and the visibility of Poles in Britain by the biggest foreign born minority and for some years before that the second It had been so long that I d become resigned to never reading it my whole life and just watching the Andrzej Wajda film instead I watched a few of his in the spring but now it seems luckily hadn t got round to his Pan Tadeusz So I don t think I ve ever been as delighted to see a book appear in my Goodreads feed as I was to sight this Bill Johnston s new translation of Pan Tadeusz just over a week ago Bill Johnston who translated my favourite contemporary Polish book Dukla by Andrzej Stasiuk a thing of intoxicating atmosphere and exuisite descriptions Thank you very much to Lee Klein for posting about the advance review copy he d received from Archipelago and thereby alerting me to the book s existence I went straight over to Edelweiss which I hadn t been on for about 18 months and was able to get an e ARC there Reading it has been accompanied by strange synergies learning of a direct ancestor named Tadeusz whose lifetime overlapped the fictional one and this morning finding the Windows Spotlight random lockscreen picture was of another entirely different ancestral area Once or twice as I started the book I felt foolish for not having read an earlier translation cover to cover that I wouldn t be writing a full scale comparison in a review But a uick look back at the beginning of the Mackenzie and the Project Gutenberg age Noyes prose translation made me glad as first impressions have a stronger effect on me than they ought that I was reading it for the first time in a version which I could love in the way that I love a few great English classicsThis is a seriously impressive feat of translation Johnston s webpage indicates he s been working on it since 2013 I think I ve only read two other volumes of translated poetry I found as good in themselves Edna St Vincent Millay s version of Baudelaire in a class apart and a reworking as much as a translation and the New Collected Poems of Tomas Transtromer translated by Robin Fulton I also loved Keith Bosley s translation of the Kalevala which I now hanker to re read but much of that was for the story and atmosphere and I often wondered how lines would have sounded in the original than marvelled at the construction in English Mickiewicz wrote Pan Tadeusz in a characteristic Polish meter thirteen syllable alexandrines Johnston has transposed it into the classic English iambic pentameter and made wonderful use of enjambment half rhymes and similar devices that feel like real poetry which has stood the test of time and sound right to the contemporary reader The meter also augmented the uality of the multiple wedding ending by association with Shakespearean comedy The rhyming couplets do not weigh down the ends of lines as they would from a lesser pen Johnston states in his introduction that this is also a line by line translation As someone who has never been able to write so much as a decent limerick I find that phenomenal There is the occasional line or word that doesn t uite work on than a scansion level but in such a long poem that is only to be expected and the great stuff by far outweighs the misfires I didn t realise how little I knew or maybe how much I d forgotten about Pan Tadeusz before I read it Tadeusz himself is only nineteen He first appears in a wonderful scene of returning home after finishing university one which in some respects could only have occurred so far in the past and in a large country he didn t visit during his studies nor hear much news from relatives but which is also beautifully familiar in its evocation of how a place once known has changed and seeing one s old room repurposed He is present in many scenes but is by no means at the centre of all the action I can see why the poem has an alternative subtitle It is contemporaneous with parts of War and Peace and is another of the 19th century great works springing from the Napoleonic Wars and of course the ominous Great Comet of 1811 is sighted Then hauling them north toward the polar starAll Lithuania filled with dread untoldNightly would watch this spectacle unfold An evil sign with other auguriesBirds of ill omen gave portentous criesAnd gathered in empty fields bills sharpened massedAs though expecting corpses for a feastDogs rooting obstinately in the earthHowled and howled shrilly as if smelling death Betokening war or famine forestersSaw the Plague Maiden in the graveyard firsHead higher yet than where the treetops standA bloodied scarf aflap in her left handThe portent is left hanging in the air because as Johnston explains in the introduction the text largely conveys a sense of hope by ending before battle when the Napoleonic army might still help Poland Lithuania free itself from the Russians Even snapshots of historical defeat can sound victorious to the uninitiated Next comes Jasi ski handsome young unbendingAlongside Korsak his bosom companion standingOn Praga s ramparts on heaped Russian deadHacking down as Praga blazes redOld Maciej one of my favourite characters is circumspect about the forthcoming battle but is finally shifted aside for this opinion Emotionally the story s ending feels happy even if you know it s not actually going to be later It s evident why Pan Tadeusz endured and sustained Poles through partition and the Soviet bloc years A lot of the poem is made up of two types of scene There s pastoral description which I love I m one of the few people who would have liked Anna Karenina better if there were of it but the sheer uantity of scenery probably has a lot to do with the low rating of the book by Poles for whom it is a permanent national fixture on their euivalent of the A level syllabus And secondly large scale largely drunken fighting Most of the conflict is related in a detailed and exciting way which worked brilliantly for me as a fan of action films I liked hearing about the characters lots of the retired badass trope a favourite of mine and their histories and weapons and there was just the right number of them enough to give a feeling of scale but not so many it was confusing or that they were reduced to the sort of brief mentions that IMO made parts of the Iliad little than a casualty list A foray here is a kind of armed raid by neighbours that took place to enforce a court decision in an area without police and there seems to have been something of a raiding culture although not as lawless as the ScotsEnglish Border Reivers which had declined through the later 18th century and which by the time Pan Tadeusz is set had pretty much disappeared under Russian rule For those who love to absorb social history through fiction and poetry especially this kind of rural setting found in Tolstoy and as Johnston points out Thomas Hardy now I want to read Hardy Pan Tadeusz is a feast And boy are there feasts in this bookSome readers may wish to be forewarned that there are hunting scenes these occur in much the same way you d find in Tolstoy couched in descriptions of nature and landscape The age of one of the female love interests may bother some English speaking readers although from the perspective of historical understanding I found the way she was presented interesting When Zosia first appeared I read her as 16 17 or 18 and with her peasanty clothes and habit of using windows as doors I imagined her looking like a slightly younger version of Malina in Wajda s Brzezina Throughout the story if it hadn t been for the one scene in which Zosia s aunt mentions that she is 13 and now of age I would have assumed that she was in her mid to late teens She simply seems to be regarded by society in a way that in an English novel of the same period reflected a girl a few years older I have seen a few genealogical records of 15 year olds married in late 18th 19th century Poland and this was a region in which the West European Marriage Pattern did not apply The aunt Telimena probably in her 30s may not always be so flatteringly portrayed later in the poem as she is at first but what stuck with me most strongly was the first scene in which she appears So she asked about new books and how he ratedTheir authors she spoke in French while his repliesLed to uestions touching on his viewsAnd then well then she turned to music danceArt sculpture too Her knowledge was immenseWhether of canvas score or printed wordHer learning left Tadeusz stunned and scaredThat he d end up exposed to ridicule He stammered like a pupil uizzed in schoolThis is a work that has a place for an intelligent woman in a way that by no means all 19th century literature does even if it s later indicated she might be a bit too much of a pretentious hipster and too modern view spoilerShe doesn t meet a bad end either it s a pragmatic one even if she doesn t remain on a pedestal hide spoiler

Pan Tadeusz Or The Last Foray in Lithuania A tale of the Gentry in the Years 1811 and 1812by Adam Mickiewicz translated by Kenneth MacKenzie To think of such things in a Paris StreetWhere on my ears the city s noises beatWith lies and curses and with plans ill fateAnd fiendish uarrels and regrets belatedAlas for us who fled in time of pestAnd timid souls took refuge in the west I longed to fly a bird of feeble flightBeyond the thunder and the stormy zoneAnd seek the sunshine and the shade aloneThe homely plot and endless childhood daysOne happiness remains when evening greysYou sit with a few friends and lock the doorAnd by the fireside shut out Europe s roarEscape in thought to happier time and tideAnd muse and dream of your own countrysideThus writes Adam Mickiewicz as he completes Pan Sir Tadeusz in the early 1830s His country had been partitioned between Austria Prussia and Russia in 1793 the last piece went in 1795 That Poland had included what is now Lithuania Belarus and Ukraine so this tale of Lithuania is nevertheless the national epic of Poland By the time Mickiewicz wrote it he had been arrested by the Russians who ruled his share of Poland in 1823 due to his membership in a university student society been sent to serve time in Odessa as a teacher become known as a writer in Moscow gone on the grand tour of Europe returned to Poland for the failed Warsaw insurrection in 1830 and then fled with many others to Paris for the rest of his lifeA lifelong supporter of Polish statehood he wrote Pan Tadeusz as a revolutionary artist often does setting the scene that stands for the present oppression in times past or another country He chose 1812 and the brief hopes that the Lithuanians fixed on Napoleon as the potential liberator when he headed across eastern Europe toward Russia Leaving the great battles to Tolstoy and Stendhal though he shrinks the conflict down to local suabbles It took me a while to see the structure however as the first half of the book is a bit tedious Mickiewicz paints multiple large scenes of local color First a landscape of the forested country and manor with lush kitchen garden Then an intrigue a young man Tadeusz torn between a worldly older woman and her innocent pubescent ward Then a Montegues and Capulets family feud among the gentry The count the leader of one of the families is also contending with young Tadeusz for both the women This eventually leads as the tinder for a flare up of the older bigger issue of who is entitled to the castle and its lands to the foray of the title A foray was a sanctioned raid by one group of gentry against another to enforce a judicial decision that was not being observed With the definitions of decision and observed somewhat loose it seems So begins the structure of ever widening conflicts each representing a conflict over property First the tussle between Tadeusz and the count then a uarrel between the two families then an armed conflict between all their gentry partisans At last however all the Poles set aside their differences and conduct a wildly unorthodox battle with the local Russian militia in the courtyard of the manor house As the epic closes the Polish officers who are part of Bonaparte s march on Moscow bivouac at the manor for a few days linking the local skirmishes to the outside world One of the main characters is a Bernardine priest who acts as a secret agent for the Polish nationalists always on the move stirring up support for Bonaparte s eventual approachThat is the plot but Mickiewicz is as much interested in celebrating Lithuanian country life as he is promoting rebellion He works the nostalgia bellows for all they re worth The epic is full of colorful characters with very individual and eccentric weapons and running jokes about which hound is the better at chasing down a paltry hare in a chase a pompous student trying to apply German analytic method to the uestions before the hotheaded gentry a anecdote that never gets beyond the first sentence and so on There are lots of descriptions of local country food costumes customs etc Mostly though there is the Lithuanian land itself Each book of the epic except the last opens with a lyrical description of the countryside that sets the tone for the action of that book For the last book Mickiewicz saves the landscape for the end and paints a sunset Most of the descriptions are uite beautiful There are three examples below but it s necessary to mention here that the translator has chosen to work in rhymed couplets as the original is written in that form To fit the sense in English into such a constrained structure tells I think that is why I struggled with the first half of the book Eventually I got interested in the politics and the larger structure and could overlook the occasionally unnatural syntax but the effort was always there And often I forgetful of the chaseSat down within a copse in some wild placeThe bearded mosses silver greyed the barkStreaked with the garnet of crushed berries darkThe heather hillocks gay with cowberryWere ruddy with a coral rosaryNow earth and sky alike were hidden from sightObscured by night and storm black than nightThe horizon split from end to end anonThe angel of the storm like some vast sunLit up his face then wrapped as in a shroudWas gone behind the crashing doors of cloudOnce the storm and rain grew intenseThe darkenss almost palpable denseBy now the sun was setting in the west Twas warm and still the circle of the skyWas rosy to the westward blue on highAnd strewn with little clouds these were a sign Being bright and fleecy that it would be fineLike flocks of sheep asleep upon the grassOr groups of teal Across the west a massTransparent purple edged with pearl and goldHung like a curtain draped with ample fold Still with the western light it glowed and burnedTill slowly yellowing to grey it turnedThe sun had drawn the cloud around his bedAnd with one last warm sigh laid down his headTwo last random notes There are only two women characters The young girl is the most pathetic romantic nonentity who disowns all knowledge and will A Dickens female is a flaming feminist in comparison The other is a fickle woman willing to transgress social strictures and of course in the end is disdained by Mickiewicz for being opportunistic most of the male characters really outrageous riotous behavior is of course seen as Polish and apparently condoned The second observation is the place of the Jew Jankiel in the story While he is always identified as a Jew and slightly separate yet at the end he is clearly recognized as a fellow Pole and an important player in the rebellion Moreover at the closing country celebration the locals all demand he play the dulcimer and he pluck and strums powerful Polish anthems like The Massacre of Praga and The Polonaise of May the Third Mickiewicz writes of Jankiel And when at last his eyes Dabrowski met one of the Polish generals marching with BonaparteHe hid them in his hand for they were wet Our Lithuania has waited long for you He said as Jews for their Messiah doOf you the singers long did prophesyOf you the portent spoke that filled the skyLive and wage war He sobbed the honest JewHe loved our country like a patriot trueDabrowski gave the Jew his hand to kissAnd thanked him kindly for his courtesies
