Poland’s Angry Romantic:
Two Poems And a Play by Juliusz Slowacki

by Juliusz Slowacki
edited and translated by Peter Cochran, Bill Johnston, Miroslawa Modrzewska, and Catherine O’Neil

Cambridge Scholars Publishing, November 2009

Juliusz Slowacki (1809-1849) is one of Poland's most important writers, but his poetry and plays are little known in the West. This book provides an introduction to him. It contains his popular play Balladina, his meditative poem Agamemnon's Tomb, and his hilarious mock-epic Beniowski, in the style of Byron's Don Juan. This volume brings together new translations by celebrated translator Bill Johnston (2007 Found in Translation Award winner), Miroslawa Modrzewska, and Catherine O’Neil.
