MetadataShow full item record
Jan Kasprowicz, lived in 1860–1926, whose fame and glory is nowadays in the shadow, in his time was considered one of the greatest and most important Polish poets and authors. He was a diligent translator, who made Polish public accustomed with a great number of pieces of worldwide literature. He made about eighty translations of different works which is a huge and rare number, especially when taking into account only one person who was at the same time an author of his genuine works, an academic scholar and a journalist. He was fascinated and inspired by Aeschylus from the time he was a schoolboy. And thus we may find many reminiscences of Aeschylus’ poetry in his genuine works. His fascination which lasted many years culminated with the translation of Aeschylus’ tragedies into Polish. As for Kasprowicz Aeschylus was ‘the king of the tragic playwrights and the most powerful worldwide author of the tragedies’.
