Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer
Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer (12 February 1865 – 18 January 1940) was a Polish poet, novelist, playwright, journalist and writer. He was a member of the Young Poland movement.



Young Poland (Polish: Młoda Polska) was a modernist period in Polish visual arts, literature and music, covering roughly the years between 1890 and 1918. It was a result of strong aesthetic opposition to the earlier ideas of Positivism which followed the suppression of the 1863 January Uprising against the occupying army of Imperial Russia. Młoda Polska promoted trends of decadence, neo-romanticism, symbolism, impressionism and art nouveau.


Tetmajer belonged to a landowner’s family from the foothills of the Tatra Mountains. He studied philosophy in Kraków and in Heidelberg, Germany. Much of his lyric poetry received publication in the Kraków periodical Życie (Life). His nostalgic and pessimistic Poezje (Poetry), published in eight series between 1891 and 1924, shows the influence of the Romantic poet and playwright Juliusz Słowacki and of French and Belgian verse. Tetmajer’s collection of sketches and tales
Na skalnym Podhalu (1903–10 Tales of the Tatras), written almost entirely in the local dialect, is considered his best work. Based in part on ancient legends of the Tatra Mountains area, these colourful stories describe the mountaineers, their violent lives, and their intense love of freedom.
