It is considered one of the greatest works of both Polish and European Romanticism. The drama's title refers to Dziady , an ancient Slavic and Lithuanian feast commemorating the dead the "forefathers". The drama has four parts, the first of which was never finished. Part III joins historiosophical and individual visions of pain and annexation, especially under the 18th-century partitions of Poland. Part III was written ten years after the others and differs greatly from them.

While, at times it is clear that the text was written over a long span of time, and that the author had little intention of connecting the Parts or acts? Warning: the Parts do not go in order.

As a Pole, what can I say about "Dziady"? I decided to leave it unrated, just because you can't really look at "Dziady" as a text It's an experience that every Pole shares, a testament of Polish Romanticism and the partitions period.
Like "Ulysses" that I'm currently trying to read in English; god help me , it's highly allusive. Almost impossible to appreciate if you're unaware of undercurrents of Polish history and Romantic thought inhabiting every line. As As a Pole, what can I say about "Dziady"? As if this weren't enough, it's written in Aesopian language, only welcoming to insiders. Polish high school students are notoriously exasperated by this maddening text :D I highly recommend reading and analysing "Dziady" - or "Pan Tadeusz", for that matter - to any foreigner who wants to gain a deeper understanding of Poland and Poles.
This isn't to say you shouldn't take it with a grain of salt - but since every generation is shaped by the previous one, there's still something left in Poles from the partitions period. Mickiewicz compiles the legends, griefs and hopes of that time, all soaked in the delicious, feverish phantasmagoria of Romanticism.
Przeczytanie tego mnie na ten moment przerasta. Nov 27, cerasuspage rated it did not like it. Romantyzm i Mickiewicz - nope. I can't be objective when it comes to Mickiewicz's works. I feel like I'm inclined to admire him. Yes, I'm Polish, but my sympathy comes mostly from knowing the Mickiewicz family personally. While that certainly adds to the enjoyment I get from reading, still, he is a great writer, and nothing can take that away from him.
Some parts obviously I find better than others, but 'Forefather's Eve' is an amazing work that I'll be fond to go back to in the future. Also, I had to read part 2 for Polish in I can't be objective when it comes to Mickiewicz's works. Also, I had to read part 2 for Polish in middle school. With the help of my teacher, the whole grade gathered in a basement at our school in the evening to read it. We lit some candles, dressed up a little to imitate the ghosts, everyone had their own part to read, and that's what we did - we read.
I can't describe the atmosphere there, it was unbelievable yet beautiful. Literature should definitely be admired in that way more often, as it really gave me the chills; I could taste the climate of the novel in reality.
Probably the best reading experience I've ever had in my life. Feb 11, Ewa rated it it was ok. I think I'm just too stupid to understand it. It's a work of art, and I just didn't really like it. It's hard to read I mean, I read "Faust" a few years ago and it also was hard to read, but I really like it. No, not really. It seems chaotic to me. Forgive me, Mister Bard.
