Although seemingly immodest in the expanse of thematic purview it suggests, A World of Slavic Literatures: Essays in Comparative Slavic Studies in Honor of Edward Mozejko is actually but a partial indicant of the scope of Mozejko's contribution to Slavic scholarship in a number of disciplines.

In spite of political and military defeats suffered between 1772 and 1863, and, most tragically, the loss of independence, Poland "had not lost her life yet." Considerable credit for her survival and subsequent rebirth must be given to Adam Mickiewicz, Juliusz Slowacki, Zygmunt Krasinski, and Cyprian Norwid, the...
