Adam Mickiewicz (1798-1855) left Russia on the grounds of ill health in 1829. He traveled throughout Germany but missed participating in the unsuccessful Polish insurrection of 1830. In the third part of Dziady (1833; Dziady III), which he completed in 1832, Mickiewicz views Poland as fulfilling a messianic role among the nations of western Europe by its national embodiment of the Christian themes of self-sacrifice and eventual redemption.--"Mickiewicz, Adam (Bernard)" Encyclopaedia Britannica Online <http://www.eb.com:180/bol/topic?eu=53803&sctn=1>
