Stefan Garczyński (1805–1833)

Garczyński, Stefan (gär-chin’skē). A Polish poet; born in Kosmovo, Oct. 13, 1805; died at Avignon, Sept. 20, 1833. He took part in the revolution of 1831, and then fled to France. His epic poem, ‘The Fate of Waclaw,’ and his minor poetry, display a pronounced tendency to mysticism; but they are an earnest expression of the Polish spirit of independence and its yearning for a national life.
