An anthology of papers produced as part of the Henryk Sienkiewicz Year events.
2016 marks the 170th anniversary of Henryk Sienkiewicz’s birth and the 100th anniversary of his birth. The Sienkiewicz Year is supposed to commemorate the Polish Nobel Prize winner and to popularise his work. As part of this project, the National Centre for Culture presents a collection of essays exploring various aspects and facets of Sienkiewicz’s writing. The contributions to the volume have been selected by Kajus Augustyniak from among the best studies on Sienkiewicz produced over the last dozen years. Often mutually polemical, the papers offer a comprehensive and up-to-date account of Sienkiewicz’s oeuvre, valuably showcasing its relevance to present-day concerns.
