- Explanation about 13th Chapter of "Sir Thaddeus". Sir Thadeuss in Polish "Pan Tadeusz" is our greatest national poem. It is written in rhyme and each line has 13 sounds. It was written by Adam Mickiewicz, and whole poem consists of 12 chapters - in last one title character marries young girl Sophie - that's the intro.
Now - 13th Chapter of Sir Thadeus is also a poem, 13 sounds in line and rhymed, and it was (supposely) written by Fredro, who was our greatest comedy/drama writers (I just love watch Fredro's plays on stage).
Now, the cherry: 13th chapter describes...trebles....
.... wedding night of Thadeus and Sophie!
It is very funny and very vulgar same time, description of activities and organs during that night are the best examples of metaphores and possibilities of our language.
