He cannot be described by one adjective or called one name, as he presents himself as a sensitive poet who can be equated with Mickiewicz , a confident Romantic, a pilgrim in a spiritual sense , a traveller, an exile or refugee, and an outsider.
I have studied mankind and know my heart I launch myself across the dry and open narrows, My carriage plunging into green as if a ketch, Floundering through the meadow flowers in the stretch.
I pass an archipelago of coral yarrows. On naked spars the banner-shaped sails hang at ease. The vessel is in chains now, leeside facing west, Lulled by slow rocking. Passengers lampoon in jest, Swabbies sigh to one another, slapping knees.
Blithe Sea! Among your jolly living creatures is The polyp, sleeping in your depths when dark clouds swarm, Wielding longish arms amid each starfish grave.
Sweet dreams! Below, a hydra of remembrances Sleeps in the middle of mishaps and raging storm, And when the heart is calm, its pincers flash and wave. Urging my horse into the wind, I spare No spur.
Woods, valleys, rocks, in surge rush by And vanish like a torrent's furious foam; And by the swirl of images I'm stunned. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed. About Adam Mickiewicz. Adam Mickiewicz. To a Pole, the name Adam Mickiewicz is emblematic of Polishness and greatness. He is a cultural icon, a name inextricably connected with Polish literature and history, and one mentioned with pride.
Mickiewicz stands out in the consciousness of Poles both as a man of letters and a political leader. Despite his unquestionable status and fame, however, much of Mickiewicz's biography is shrouded in mystery. Even the generally accepted date of his birth, December Nor has it been established conclusively whether Mickiewicz was born in Nowogrodek or at Zaosie, a mile or so apart. Many biographical facts, particularly those pertaining to his relationships with women, were deliberately obscured to preserve a flawless public image of the poet.
Likewise, his interest in mysticism and involvement in mystical cults tended to be minimized, especially during the years of Communist rule in Poland when the official line was to shun spirituality of any kind, not to expose the poet to ridicule.
Mickiewicz's son. Likewise, many critics and scholars tended to overlook significant facts in the poet's biography, as well as significant themes and issues in his writing, to sustain the idealized view of Mickiewicz as a Polish national bard. This tendency to carefully "whitewash" Mickiewicz is hardly surprising. Born three years after the final partition of Poland, Mickiewicz became a spiritual leader of the Polish nation. Given the history of Poland and the long streak of political oppression and subjugation, the need for heroes and the idealization of Mickiewicz as a leader are perfectly understandable.
Yet already in the s, there were critical voices against the bowdlerization of Mickiewicz's work since some editions of his works eliminated the more racy passages and objections were raised against the cover-up in renditions of his biography. In recent years, a much more vast and thorough re-examination of Mickiewicz' life and oeuvre has occurred.
This is partially due to the overall re-examination of Polish history and Polish literary tradition after the collapse of Communism and, generally. Thus, much has been written lately about the white spots in Mickiewicz's biography. The evidence of Mickiewicz's fascination with mysticism is overwhelming, and there is some basis for the allegation of his mother's Jewishness.

Sonety krymskie. Sonnets de crimée
The Crimean Sonnets Sonety krymskie are a series of 18 Polish sonnets by Adam Mickiewicz , constituting an artistic telling of a journey through the Crimea. They were published in , together with a cycle of love poems called the "Odessan Sonnets" Sonety Odeskie , in a collection called "Sonnets" Sonety. The Crimean Sonnets is an expression of Mickiewicz's interest in the Orient , shared by many of the students of the University of Vilnius. Involuntarily residing in Russia, Mickiewicz left Odessa and went on a journey, which turned out to be a trek to another world, his first initiation into "the East" . The Crimean Sonnets are romantic descriptions of oriental nature and culture of the East which show the despair of the poet—a pilgrim, an exile longing for the homeland, driven from his home by a violent enemy.
