Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska Maria

Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska Maria (18911945)

Polish poet whose work is representative of modern lyrical poetry. She is particularly notable for the urbane sensitivity of her poems. As a daughter of the well-known painter Wojciech Kossak, Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska grew up in an artistic and intellectual milieu. Her first collection of poems, Niebieskie migdaly (1922; Idle Dreams), was warmly acclaimed by the poets of the Skamander group. Up to 1939 she published a dozen more small volumes of her lyric poetryincluding Pocalunki (1926; Kisses) and Surowy jedwab (1932; Raw Silk)in which she dealt with such subject matter as the loves, the disenchantments, and the carefree life of a sophisticated modern woman. During World War II she immigrated to France and later to England, where, lamenting her exile, she expressed her feelings in Róza i lasy plonace (1940; A Rose and Burning Forests) and in Golab ofiarny (1941; The Sacrificial Dove). Many of her poems can be found in English translation in the volume Butterflies: Selected Poems, translated by Barbara Plebanek and Tony Howard.
