Literary output[ edit ] Towards the end of his life Pasek wrote an autobiographical diary, Pamietniki, a copy of which was found in 18th century and printed in , making him posthumously famous.
In his memoirs, he depicts in vivid language the everyday life of a Polish noble Szlachcic , both during wartime and peace, with valuable batallistic scenes.
He mentions the tales of the 17th-century Swedish and Muscovite wars, the catastrophic last years of the reign of King John II Casimir —68 , the incompetent rule of King Michael Korybut —73 , and concludes his narrative with the splendid reign of King John III Sobieski — Since a number of opening pages of the first part is missing, it is now impossible to establish when Pasek begins his story.
Furthermore, as he wrote the diary many years after these conflicts, he frequently mistook some historic events and incorporated incorrect dates.
The diary is divided into two parts. Also, Pasek describes the Polish army raid over Denmark — Pasek colourfully writes about the military life, showing soldiers primary motivations, like curiosity, desire of fame and loot, and disregard for deep religious messages; for example, he describes Polish soldiers stealing prayer books from faithful Danes during a service at a Lutheran church in Denmark.
He describes his peacetime activities, conveniently missing some compromising facts, such as court orders, sentencing him to infamia. Also, he did not object serfdom and peasant social class oppression. Representing late Sarmatism culture, he views the szlachta social class as the only real representative of Poland. Pasek utilised different genres, such as: lyric poetry in a farewell to his beloved horse Deresz letters of King John II Casimir and Hetman Stefan Czarniecki speeches and dialogues popular songs of the era offensive jokes and mockery of Lithuanian peoples Furthermore, he used everyday language and swear words.
