    Re: Which Polish authors do you know?

    I `ve also read some poems by Tadeus Rozewic. I`m not sure if the name is right.

    Almost... Yes, he's known as well. Tadeusz Rózewicz, with "z" being a special Polish character.

    Yes, he is famous. His style is similar to G.G. Byron. A romantic.

    Discovering EMINESCU -"POEMS" English version by Corneliu M. Popescu [read the poem Lucifer and you`ll agree with me that he is one of the best]

    I'll have to look for his lyrics, then. Though I must say I am not that fond of poetry. And speaking of poetry and Polish authors, there are Czeslaw Milosz and Wislawa Szymborska, two contemporary Nobel Prize poets. Frankly, I thought they might be known...
