I know that it is a well-known, clever book showing the difference between XIX centaury Polish classes, with hidden symbols and meanings...
In spite of this I understood nothing and during reading I was praying for the end.

Je recommende fortement les Noces de Wyspianski a tout(e) Quebecois(e) qui a un partennaire Polonaise). Ce drame représenté pour la première fois en 1901 résume le débat qui a obsédé l'intelligentsia polonaise entre 1795 (quand les Russes, les Autrichiens et les Prusses ont divisé le territoire polonais entre eux) et 1990 quand Lech Walesa a reussi a se faire élire President de la Pologne dans des elections libre et mettre fin a presque 200 ans ou la Pologne a été sous une domination étrangere.
This doesn't deserve one star.

This is a fantastic book - sidesplittingly funny at times. It's not just stating the obvious about the classes being unable to mix - it's the razor sharp wit with which he illustrates it. The idiotic verbosity of the poet, the crude country dialect of The Bride, the drunken bluntness of Czepiec.. The rhymes as well - fantastic; juz by duzo mogli miec ino oni nie chcom ciec. I'll be translating this in fun, ebook form later this year.
Jak się przeczyta ten utwór bez otoczki polonistyczno - lekturowej, to jest nawet znośny. Ale po dołożeniu tzw. ideologii idzie już gorzej. Najlepiej przeczytać raz będąc w liceum, a później drugi raz dopiero po studiach.
Za pierwszym razem w ogóle nie zrozumiałem tej książki. Dopiero po omówieniu doceniłem ją. Podoba mi się zamysł.
It was readable for school standards.
