Part IV of Adam Mickiewicz's monumental drama Dziady [Forefather's Eve] continues the saga of Gustaw: a young man tragically separated from his love. Although ostensibly a Wertherian apology for romantic love, in an age when financial concerns and social status often determined who marries whom, Part IV is actually a metaphysical discussion of Christian love for one's neighbors, living and dead.
