5-0 out of 5 stars If you like Sienkiewicz novels, don't overlook this jewel.
This storyis about a young man and his two friends, one a girl and the other a boy.Both boys love the girl.A familiar plot but as told by this master storyteller, very engrossing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Read Hania and you'll be hooked on Sienkiewicz forever
There's nothing to add really to the previous review, I would just like to stress that Hania (the second story) is so good it would deserve 5 stars on its own.

4-0 out of 5 stars Two out of three ain't bad when they're this good.
"The Little Trilogy" is three loosely related stories from thepen of Henryk Sienkiewicz, most famous for "Quo Vadis" and hisTrilogy.

I discovered Sienkiewicz through "With Fire andSword", the first book of the Trilogy, and I have been stalking hisremaining books like a ravenous wolf ever since.This man constructs plotslike Alexander Dumas and ranks with Tolstoy's greatest novels for sheerscope.He is, quite simply, the best writer I have ever been exposed tofrom a literary standpoint as well as from the sheer enjoyment I've gleanedfrom his novels.

"The Little Trilogy" is only a peek at whathe's really capable of, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.The first story is acharming example of his ability to create characters that you just fall inlove with.The second story is the longest of the three and, by far, themost fully realized.It's a romance that transforms itself into a story ofalmost gothic tragedy.The characters grab you, and I could not put itdown!The last piece is a military story that meanders a bit and lacks thecharacterization and tight plot structure that are Sienkiewicz's hallmarks.

Enjoyable, beautifully written, but probably essential only toSienkiewicz groupies. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not very useful
This book is not an overview of the historical times in the Trilogy, but rather a description of the translation and publication issues that were faced in order to origonally produce the novels. There is a brief description of Poland's history in the beginning, but it was simply an overview defining the organization of the rulers and the Commonwealth; with very little historical explanations which can not be found on a simple Google search, sadly. There are also chapters dedicated to how the books were accepted by their readers from when they first appeared to when the world-wide crowds got a look of them, saying that "It is a phenomenon that approached the Bible, Sienkiewicz's trilogy became a national bestseller which would stay on the top charts in Poland for 100 years...."

The only useful segment for people eager to understand or at least have a firmer grasp of the books is a character glossery near the back, featuring a very fine list of over 50 names. One would find it difficult to find such a useful list anywhere else.

The only reasons to buy this book are to understand the translation issues as well as the problems faced during the publication, as well as the glossery in the end. Any historical curiosity of the books' plots' time periods will prove this companion to be a failure.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly thin
I was hoping that this book would provide details of the historical background of the trilogy, and place the literature in the context of the events it represents.Instead, the historical information is about what one would find in a typical encyclopedia article on Poland.The rest of the book consists introductions originally written for the three volumes of the trilogy in the Kuniczak translation, but no longer published with them, and some discussion on the history and problems of translating Sienkiewicz.These latter seem intended to glorify the Kuniczak translation, but I for one was not convinced by the examples provided.I read With Fire and Sword in the Curtin translation and The Deluge in the Kuniczak, and I was put off by the modernisms and obvious inserted connective material that appears in the latter.

On the other hand, it was fun to read about how Sienkiewicz produced his work, and his relationship with his contemporary translators.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good aide to reading the trilogy
Henryk Sienkiewicz's trilogy can be difficult to get through without a good grasp of Polish history, which, to be truthful, is hard to come by here in the States.I therefore recommend this guide to all those who wantto really understand the books instead of just taking them for face value. I think that having this guide really involved me in the books and gave mesomething extra that the average reader would leave the book lacking. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
[This] sprightly new translation demonstrates that even the passage of a century cannot disguise the wit or lessen the bite of these three novellas by Sienkiewicz, the Polish writer best known for his historical novel Quo Vadis? Charcoal Sketches uses broad humor to depict the plight of the common folk in the village of Woollyhead who are subject to the rule of the Russian Tsar and, more directly, to the whims of his appointed representative, Mr. Skrofulowski...Bartek the Conqueror is a darker tale of a peasant from a Prussian-occupied area of Poland who is sent off to war only to discover that it's easier to fight against the French than to live with the Germans. In On the Bright Shore Sienkiewicz ridicules Polish expatriates living the high life in Monte Carlo."" - Publishers Weekly. ""These novellas continue Sienkiewicz's close examination of Polish culture and history, providing a rich perspective for modern readers."" - Library Journal. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Whither Quo Vadis? offers an engaging account of how the Roman world and its history are represented in film and the way in which the different adaptations reflect the shifting historical situations and ideological concerns of their own times.



  • Explores five surviving film adaptations – Guazzoni's of 1912; D’Annunzio/Jacoby of 1925; Mervyn LeRoy's of 1951; the Italian TV mini-series of 1985 by Franco Rossi; and Kawalerowicz’s 2001 Polish version
  • Examines how these different versions interpret, select from, and modify the novel and the ancient sources on which it is based
  • Offers an exceptionally clear view of how films have presented ancient Rome and how modern conditions determine its reception
  • Looks at rare and archival material which has not previously received close scholarly attention
