About Henryk Sienkiewicz
Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846–1916) was Polish historian, journalist, and the winner of the 1905 Nobel Prize for lifetime achievement in literature. He is one of the best known historical figures in Poland. He has three museums dedicated to him in Poland, and there are statues dedicated to him in the Ukraine and in Rome. He was awarded honorary doctorates from both Jagiellonian University and Lwów University.
About Jeremiah Curtin
Jeremiah Curtin (1835–1906) was an American translator and folklorist. He graduated from Harvard in 1863 and worked for the U.S. State Department in Russia and Britain. Curtin mastered more than 70 languages, and reportedly knew little Polish when he began translating Henryk Sienkiewicz’s With Fire and Sword—something for which he has received considerable criticism. Yet, his translations of Sienkiewicz’s novels are credited with making the publishing house Little, Brown, and Company financially solvent.
