This play, which first appeared in 1834, is generally regarded as one of the most important works of the romantic period in Eastern Europe, one of the major classics of Polish dramatic literature. Zygmunt Krasinski (1812-1859) is one of the great Byronic poets of Poland's heroic 19th century. The play not only dramatises the hero's conflict between high ideals and the sordidness of real life but also, prophetically, confronts him with the revolutionary forces of the mass uprising of the following century embodied in a great rebel leader who foreshadows Lenin and Stalin.
