Biography

Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer was a Polish poet, novelist, playwright, journalist and writer, who was a member of the Young Poland movement. He was half-brother of the painter Włodzimierz Tetmajer (1861-1923) and cousin of the writer Tadeusz Boy-Żeleński (1874-1941) and Professor Ludwig von Tetmajer (1850-1905) at the Eidgenössische Polytechnikum in Zürich. Przerwa-Tetmajer studied classics and philosophy at the Jagiellonian University from 1884-89. He then became a journalist at Kurier Polski.

Przerwa-Tetmajer combined all the most important topics of modernism philosophy, destructive love, women, Tatra, fate creation, and art threatened by civilization. Additionally, he largely appointed a canon of Young Poland topics and expressed new poetic lyricism. In 1940, he died homeless in a Warsaw hospital, mentally ill, after being evicted out of a hospice by the Nazis.
