Let's have a discussion about books and authors - not only Polish but any you deem worthy.
OK, I changed my mind. Iron has a new account now so he won`t mind if we take part in his old thread.
Adam Mickiewicz, the greatest Polish poet, wrote the greatest Polish epic poem called Pan Tadeusz - Mr Tadeusz - in 1830s.
The poem consists of 12 books/parts/chapters. Mr Tadeusz is a young nobleman who courts and finally marries a country gentry girl - Zosia - Sophie. There is also a rich patriotic plot based on Polish resistance to Russian occupation in Lithuania.
A dozen or two years after the publication the 13th chapter surfaced. A very indecent one. Certainly not written by Mickiewicz - another famous Polish playwright is suspected - Aleksander Fredro.The 13th Book of Pan Tadeusz - Adam Mickiewicz 's erotic travesty of Pan Tadeusz .
The piece is very professional, so it could have been written by one of the great poets. Its authorship is attributed to Aleksander Fredro, but it could also have been created in the 20th century. The poem is saturated with erotic obscenities and profanity . At the same time, it has a formal Mickiewicz style (thirteen syllables, Homeric comparisons , etc.). The poem is about Zosia and Tadeusz's wedding night.
