January 12 – Invocation from Pan Tadeusz by Adam Mickiewicz
Since Mickiewicz published his poem as an exile in Paris, he was free from the Russian censors to talk openly about the occupation. The fact that the Polish national poem begins with the words “O Lithuania” largely stems from the fact that the 19th-century concept of nationality had not yet been geopoliticized in his time.
All works of Mickiewicz including Pan Tadeusz are in the Polish language. He had been brought up in the culture of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealtha multicultural state that had encompassed most of what today are the separate countries of Poland, LithuaniaBelarus and Ukraine.
