Jan Twardowski, born1915 in Warsaw, published his first collection
of poems Powrot Andersena [Andersen's Return] in a tiny edition
of 40 copies in 1937. His early poetry was to some extent influenced by
Czechowicz and the Polish avant-garde. It was not until 1959 that a subsequent
collection was published in Poznan Wiersze [Poems]. Since his third
book in 1970 Znaki Ufnosci [Signs of Faith], he has been a prolific
writer endearing himself to the Polish reader (as well as books for children
and theological commentaries) as one of the most widely read Polish poets
currently across all generations. Since his becoming a priest after the
war, all his poetry in some shape or form has been an appraisal of the
individual and their place in existence as an affirmation of faith.
