Les Chevaliers teutoniques

République des Lettres
1

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Henryk Sienkiewicz. "Les Chevaliers teutoniques", qui pourrait aussi se traduire par "Les Chevaliers de la Croix", marque le retour du Prix Nobel de littérature au roman historique, genre dans lequel il a déjà fait ses preuves avec son célèbre "Quo Vadis ?". Il y brosse le Moyen Âge polonais, gonflé d'un grand souffle de mysticisme, pendant la Guerre du royaume de Pologne-Lituanie contre l'Ordre Teutonique. Dans la plus pure tradition romanesque, deux chevaliers polonais, Macko, lent, méditatif, malin et inflexible, et son jeune neveu Zbyszko, impulsif et invincible, voyagent vers Cracovie. Chemin faisant, ils rencontrent Lichtenstein, messager des "Chevaliers de la Croix", que Zbyszko offense. Il devrait, en conséquence de son acte, être condamné à mort, mais il est sauvé in extremis par Danusia, fille de Jurand, héros spirituel de cette épopée. L'amour naît entre le jeune homme et sa libératrice, et ils se marient secrètement. Danusia est ensuite enlevée par les Chevaliers teutoniques, et Zbyszko la retrouve, après de longues recherches et d'innombrables aventures, folle et malade. Elle meurt pendant le voyage de retour. Zbyszko, dont la douleur s'apaise, épouse la courageuse et intrépide Jagienka. Cette fable se déroule sur le fond dramatique de la lutte étemelle entre le monde slave et le monde germanique, entre les Polonais et les Chevaliers teutoniques, et se termine par la puissante description de la bataille de Grunwald.
