Pan Wołodyjowski (The Trilogy #3)

3.92  ·  Rating Details ·  1,577 Ratings  ·  29 Reviews
Pan Wołodyjowski jest powieścią stanowiącą zwieńczenie Trylogii. Jej bohater pojawił się we wcześniejszych częściach cyklu, zyskując coraz bardziej na znaczeniu: w Ogniem i mieczem był przyjacielem Skrzetuskiego, w Potopie - już postacią niemal pierwszoplanową. Bez wątpienia Sienkiewicz dostrzegł w Michale Wołodyjowskim olbrzymi potencjał. Kreując jego postać, wzorował sie ...more

Wonderful literature. The poles should be re-named The People of Job as they have suffered unawares for centuries while at the same time have defended western civilization with truly uncommon valor and integrity. The west owes a debt of thanks to these honorable people. It is crazy that they languished under the yoke communism after WWII and that we "blessed" it.

One important note... if you read the trilogy in English, be sure to read the translation by Kuniczak. I started reading one by a different translator and the difference was night and day. It was like reading a wooden story by an author of adventure books for young adults instead of a well written story by a great author. If you read a poor review I wonder if the reviewer didn't read the other translation.

The books in the trilogy read like a mix of "War and Peace" and "The Three Musketeers". Thi

Before read this book I had committed a mistake, to read in somewhere (and I do not remember where) that the best part of Sienkiewicz's Trilogy is the second. To get things worst, the initial chapters of Pan Wolodyjowski were boring, and not by the romantic plot, but for the choices Michal had made. And then, some years have gone, some things changes and the story turnabout. Thankfully for the best.

With border skirmishes and battles, the old pan Michal returns and the war with the turks takes fo

Since you have read the first two volumes of Sienkiewicz's Trilogy, (that is to say the 1200 page "With Fire and Sword" and the 1700 page "Deluge"), you might as well finish the job by reading the final instalment, "Fire in the Steppe" which is a mere 700 pages in length. Its relative brevity comes as quite a relief. By finishing it you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you did not leave the job undone.
As a whole, the Trilogy has great value for its portrayal of Polish history during it

Rozważałam dać dwie gwiazdki z litości dla naszego ukochanego Noblisty, ale wtedy zauważyłam, że tyle dałam Potopowi, a "Pan Wołodyjwski" okazał się nieporównywalnie gorszy. Zdecydowanie najnudniejsza część trylogii! Nic tylko bitwy, bitwy i bitwy. Jedynym w miarę interesującym wątkiem było to "porwanie", ale jeden na 600 stronach to jednak dość mało. Poza tym tylko bitwy, okrucieństwa i oblężenia. To mi się nudziło już w "Ogniem i mieczem", a po przeczytaniu całej trylogii mam już zdecydowanie ...more

Pan Wołodyjowski, będący ostatnią częścią Sienkiewiczowskiej trylogii okazał się być równocześnie jej najokrutniejszą ale i najsłabszą częścią. Czytelnik może czuć ukontentowanie chyba jedynie zakładając z góry, że tytuł powieści nijak ma się do jej zawartości. Dość paradoksalnie pan Wołodyjowski jawi się na kartach tomu jako wątek ściśle poboczny, służący do wtłoczenia między wiersze dużej dawki historii. Gdybym miała być złośliwa (a przecież nie jestem ;)) doszukiwałabym się tu nieudanej próby ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who thinks history is old news.

Interesting finale to the entire Trilogy. The last volume seemed to get away from making the history of the period the main focus. The characters and their beliefs were more focused. While saying that, the story shows how deeply people can feel about issues, such as religion, honor, patriotic pride and self serving selfishness.

The trilogy is a microcosm of the world we live in today. Sadly, the human race has not found a way to live with each others beliefs and ideals. Rather amazing when you th

"Pan Wolodyjowski", trzecia czesc slynnej "Trylogii" H. Sienkiewicza. Wielka ta powiesc nie mialem dotad ochoty i odwagi czytac, podobnie jak "Krzyzakow", przekonany, ze sprobuje wchlonac mnie swiat pelen szowinistycznych stereotypow oraz nacjonalizmu. Ale jakze! Jest to wspaniala opowiesc historyczna nasycona akcja, przygodami, sporkami milosnymy, zdrada, miloscia i zazdroscia, walkami i pojedynkami ze staroswieckich powodow, i czym jeszcze potrzebnym rozrywkowym ksiazek lub filmom.

Después de mucho buscar este libro, finalmente llegó a mis manos. Sin duda continua en la linea de su predecesor, pero en mi opinión, no llega a superarlo. Miguel Volodiovski es un gran soldado (aunque no tan memorable como Andrés Kmita) que se entrega por completo a la lucha por la libertad de Polonia. La escritura de Sienkiewicz es impecable y para quienes gustan de la novela histórica, recomiendo mucho este libro.

Outstanding tale of faith, loyality, and courage in the face of adversity. This translation by W. S. Kuniczak is extremely readable; I highly recommend it. In his last book of "The Trilogy", Henryk Sienkiewicz once agian provides characterers that I will long remember, including the heroine, Basia. Although I could go on about Fire in the Steppe, I think I will sit down to enjoy some warm mead and listen to the tales of Pan Zagloba.

In the tradition of Jane Eyre and Sense and Sensibility, this novel should have been made into a movie long ago. It has all the elements of those English classics, but the the setting is Eastern Europe.

It started quite slow but got more interesting towards the end. I still think the first book in the trilogy is my favorite.

I listened to the audiobook version read by Janusz Gajos and he did a wonderful job.

I can't remember how I found this, but Polish history has been a soft spot for me for decades. I really liked reading it, especially the "supporting" characters.

Final volume in The Trilogy but also the weakest. Good story but very short and not as detailed and interesting as the others.
I really wanted to love this book, but ultimately found it boring enough to not carry me through the whole thing. I don't say that about very many books.

Henryk Adam Aleksander Pius Sienkiewicz (also known as "Litwos"; May 5, 1846–November 15, 1916) was a Polish journalist and Nobel Prize-winning novelist. He was one of the most popular Polish writers at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1905 for his "outstanding merits as an epic writer."
