Maurycy Beniowski existed. Back in the 1950s, the British ambassador in Madagascar reported that he saw the grave of the self-proclaimed king of the “only Polish colony”. The journey of the Polish Don Quixote from Kamchatka to Baltimore is also marked by other wives, children, mistresses abandoned by him … It is not surprising that Slavic fantasy, passion and faith that it is not mind and heart that need to be interested in Słowacki, becoming a literary challenge for the poet for two decades, because that’s how much it took to write a poem about ghosts, witches, ancestors barrows, Bar Confederation and Khania Giraju.
