Aleksander Wat, (born Aleksander Chwat; 1900-1967) was a Polish poet,
writer and art theoretician, one of the precursors of the Polish futurism
movement in the early 1920s. His nine years spent in the Soviet Union cured
his Communist sympathies and Wat was considered not reliable enough by
the Soviet-sponsored Communist authorities of Poland to allow him to publish
his own works. In 1959 he emigrated to France and settled in Paris, where
he died July 29, 1967.
