Artikelomschrijving

"God hath denied me that angelic measure / Without which no man sees in me the poet," writes Zygmunt Krasinski in one of his most recognisable lyrics. Yet while it may be true that his lyric output cannot rival in quality the verses of the other two great Polish Romantics, Adam Mickiewicz and Juliusz Slowacki, Krasinski's dramatic muse gives no ground to any other.

The Glagoslav edition of the Dramatic Works of Zygmunt Krasinski provides the English reader, for the first time, with all of Krasinski's plays in the translation of Charles S. Kraszewski. These include the sweeping costume drama Irydion, in which the author sets forth the grievances of his occupied nation through the fable of an uprising of Greeks and barbarians against the dissipated emperor Heliogabalus, and, of course, the monumental drama on which his international fame rests: the Undivine Comedy.

A cosmic play, which defies simple description, the Undivine Comedy is both a de-masking of the Byronic ideal of the poet, whose nefarious, and selfish devotion to the ideal has evil consequences for real human beings, and a prophetic warning of the fratricidal class warfare that was to roil the first decades of the twentieth century. The Undivine Comedy is intriguing in the way that the author presents both sides of this question - the republican and that of the ancien regime - with sympathy and understanding. It is also striking how - in 1830 - the author foresaw the problems of the 1930s.

As Czeslaw Milosz once put it, Krasinski was insightfully commenting on Marxism while Karl Marx was still in high school. The Dramatic Works of Zygmunt Krasinski also include the unfinished play 1846, which hints at how the author would have handled a work meant for the traditional stage, and the Unfinished Poem - the Dantean "prequel" to the Undivine Comedy, on which Krasinski was working at his death.

This book was published with the support of the Hanna and Zdzislaw Broncel Charitable Trust.
