Jan Twardowski

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.
