Stanislaus Seraphinus Jagodynski (Sixteenth Century)

Jagodynski, Stanislaus Seraphinus (yä-gō-din’skē). A Polish poet and prose-writer, who flourished in the sixteenth century, and was, it would seem, a laureate and epigrammatist at court, distinguishing himself by his wit and eloquence. ‘Presents for Saxon Ladies,’ a biting satire against the corruption of the times; ‘The Courtesans,’ a volume of epigrams; and ‘The Escape of Rugiera,’ a drama, show him at his best.
