From Library Journal:
The first Polish novel ever written, this 18th-century satire views the nation's society and politics through the eyes of a young nobleman. The naive Nicholas experiences a full range of corruption and bribery, wastes his inheritance, and escapes his creditors only by sailing to the New World. Shipwrecked there and taken in by a primitive tribe whose values contrast sharply with those of the ``civilized'' world, Nicholas eventually returns to Europe and proselytizes for his benefactors' superior ethics: His efforts lead to his commitment to an insane asylum. Reminiscent of Swift and Voltaire, this introduction to 18th-century Polish manners and morals will appeal not only to students of Polish literature but also to those interested in utopian fiction, satire, or the culture and literature of the Age of Enlightenment. Highly recommended.
