Tales By Polish Authors

By Various.

The writers in this collection include: Adam Szymański, Stefan Żeromski, Wacław Sieroszewski and Henryk Sienkiewicz. All the stories were good – particularly the short one from Żeromski – ‘Twilight Tempation’. The common theme throughout was the study of rural life and the sufferings of the peasants and the poor. Szymański’s story was excellent as well: the participants were exiled to Siberia – but rather than focus on the physical hardships it looked at the homesickness and memories of the two characters. As I said – all the stories are well worth reading – it’s a window into a different world. The book is free from Amazon.
