Meritul lui Tadeusz Dolega Mostowicz e acela de a-şi fi asumat responsabilitatea de a exprima întreaga complexitate a societăţii într-un singur roman. Şi a reuşit. Nu vreau să spun că alţii n-au făcut-o -sau poate nu am luat eu contact cu ei-, însă tot ce citisem până acum fusese fragmentar.
Deşi la adresa dilogiei "Vraciul. Profesorul Wilczur" se poate remarca un început şi un sfârşit -opera având caracter biografic-, eu cred că vraciul, alias profesorul Wilczur, rămâne o eternă întruchipare a

The first part was awesome, the second part was interesting, but not like the previous one.

4,5 звезди.
По-философска от "Знахар", особено първата половина. Тук липсва този свръх позитивизъм и непоклатима вяра в доброто. Сякаш е написана не 2, а 20 години по-късно от вече по-улегнал и вглъбен в чувствата и отношенията автор. Прочитайки кратка биография на Мостович, този факт не ме изненадва.
И тази книга много ми хареса, но истинското очарование за мен си остава "Знахар".

Această dilogie este dominată de Rafal Wilczur care întruchipează o sinteză a valorilor umane, eroul singuratic care pune binele semenilor mai presus de sine și de aspectele materiale. Deși ar putea trece și a și fost de altfel catalogat ca literatură de masă amenințată de melodramă, romanul abordează în mod interesant o serie de contraste cum ar fi binele și răul, posibilitățile și aspirațiile sau egoismul și altruismul. N-o să argumentez această afirmație, pentru că va trebui să o fac cu exemp ...more

Dupa lectura acestei carti am ramas cu un sentiment straniu, poate unul de nostalgie ca am finisat frumoasa mea calatorie alaturi de profesorul Wilczur. Profund impresionata de experienta acestui om puternic, a Vraciului, care si-a sacrificat intreaga sa existenta intru binelor oamenilor din jur, un om care m-a asigurat ca totusi mai exista oameni buni si marinimosi, ca intelepciunea umana si bunatatea chiar nu au limite, ca linistea sufleteasca nu tine de avutie si bunuri materiale.

A fascinating story about a genius surgeon who loses his memory and ends up wandering the Polish countryside, later taking up the role of a village healer. Dragged too much at the end though.

The first part was exceptional, I read it in one sitting. The second part was also interesting, but it lacked the first part's excitement.

Takich książek i bohaterów brakuje mi w polskiej literaturze. Książka wzrusza mimo, że ma już 70 lat. Dołęga - Mostowicz chyba czuł, czego chcieliby czytelnicy.

Tadeusz Dołęga-Mostowicz was a Polish journalist and author of over a dozen popular novels. The best known, which in Poland became a byword for fortuitous careerism, was The Career of Nicodemus Dyzma. It is claimed by some that the book subsequently inspired the 1971 novel Being There by Jerzy Kosiński.

Tadeusz Mostowicz was born August 10, 1898, at his family's village of Okuniewo, near Vitebsk in

“-Nu voi pleca. Raman. Ce vrei? Te-am indragit. Te-am indragit pentru ca esti prost, imaparate.
Wilczur zambi.
-Prost... repeta.
-Da. In vremurile de astazi, cand mintea exista numai pentru a face rau, ce este prostia daca nu cel mai de pret bun? Si ce este binele daca nu intelepciune? Viata devine un paradox. Atunci poate intelept e si faptul ca tu, carissime, traiaesti pentru a aduce fericire altora.
-Poate ca pentru asta am fost facut, spuse Wilczur dus pe ganduri.
-Tu traiesti pentru altii, altii pentru ei insisi, numai eu nu stiu pentru cine si pentru ce traiesc... De ani de zile caut raspunsul, il caut pe fundul fiecarei sticle. Si nu-l gasesc... Se vede ca nu nimeresc sticla potrivita. Dar nu-ti fie teama! Vine si randul ei... Am s-o gasesc si in ultima inghititura voi afla adevarul...”
