Tadeusz Kosciuszko: Poland's National Hero in British Art and Literature Other events...
A public lecture by Thomas McLean, Senior Lecturer in Nineteenth-Century British Literature, University of Otago, New Zealand.

Most Australians know Kosciuszko as the name of a mountain. But Tadeusz Kosciuszko was one of the most important figures of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

This lecture will offer a brief overview of Kosciuszko’s remarkable life—his youth in Poland, his service in the American Revolution, his attempts to bring a similar revolution to his homeland, and his life in exile after the failure of the Kosciuszko Uprising. But its main focus will be the literary and artistic works created in Great Britain to commemorate the Polish general.

This event is free and open to the public.
