|Anna Swirszczynska (1909-1984) was born in Warsaw. She studied medieval
and baroque literature at university. Her first poems were published in
literary magazines in the early 1930s, but her first volume of prose poems
appeared in 1936. During the Second World War Swirszczynska took an active
part in the Warsaw Uprising (1944), and it was her war experience which
had the greatest impact on her second volume of poetry, Budowalam barykade
(I Was Building the Barricade, 1972). Her last volume of poetry, entitled
i radosc (Suffering and Joy), was published in 1984.
