Translation: Pan Tadeusz or The Last Foray in Lithuania. A Tale of the Gentry during 1811–1812 in Twelve Books of Verse.
Comment: Tadeusz (Thaddeus) is the first name of the main character, Tadeusz Soplica. Pan is an honorific, then reserved to noblemen, roughly equivalent to "Sir". Mickiewicz explains the term zajazd (here translated as "foray") as an armed execution of a court order carried out by the plaintiff's relatives and neighbors.
