 Selected Poems by Cyprian Kamil Norwid: SR, JANUARY 2005
Norwid’s “Their Strength” (“Siła ich”) illustrates a few strengths and weaknesses in Czerniawski’s work as well as certain problems which Norwid’s poetry presents to a translator.
Though Czerniawski maintains Norwid’s idiosyncratic punctuation, his compulsion to duplicate the formal structure of an epigram-even though he ends up substituting couplets (AABB) for Norwid’s original ABAB rhyme-results in distortion of meaning.
English speakers might benefit from a footnote alerting them to Norwid’s unusual diction as well as providing relevant background information about censorship and political oppression which Poles were subjected to by their German and Russian occupiers in the nineteenth century-and prophetically in the twentieth.

 Books | Longing for nobility
It is equally rare, in the English-speaking world, to come across a work of translation that is a labour of love, a painstakingly crafted instrument that resonates with the melody and the mystery of the original, rather than a factory-made music box.
And so was Norwid himself, a wholly idiosyncratic person, who cultivated idiosyncrasy not because he wanted to, but because it was thrust upon him by his marginalisation.
Here Norwid's poetry attains a grandeur that, like Chopin's music, is not achieved by deploying a hundred-strong orchestra equipped with kettle-drums, but through the use of certain cross-border harmonies that make the listener proud to be a native of Europe and a product of her culture:

During the Nazi occupation, Norwid's thoughts reinforced our hope in God, and in the period of the unjust and contemptuous dealings of the Communist system, he helped us persevere along with the truth, given to us as a duty to be lived with dignity.
Norwid's poetry was born from the travail of his difficult life.
Norwid's scientia crucis enabled him to evaluate men according to whether they knew how to suffer with the Saviour who "is and was and will be the root of all truth" (Letter to M. Trebicka, May 1884, VIII, 213).

 Gerard Manley Hopkins and Polish poet, Cyprian Kamil Norwid
Cyprian Kamil Norwid, now generally considered the best Polish poet of the second half of the nineteenth century, was born in 1821.
Like Norwid, Hopkins was not a poet dedicated to singing songs to while the time away; rather, to use Norwid's phrase, he kept writing about what he was pained by ("ja to co pisze boleje"), concerned not with poetical padding but with the truthfulness of experience.

Cyprian Kamil Norwid was, in the view of the outstanding Slavist Roman Jakobson, "one of the greatest world poets of the later nineteenth century".
Norwid likens the man who spurns memory to a child in a moving cart thinking the trees are moving.
Norwid offers an enchanting point of departure for thoughts about imaginative language, the mysteries that can be conjectured through grammar, and what is ultimately true.

Although Norwid's letters have been a primary source for both the reconstruction of his biography and for the study of his ideas, they contain a self-modeled image of Norwid that can neither be classified as fiction nor can it be considered his true portrait.
It further raises a series of theoretical issues related to the study of private correspondence such as self- referentiality, the illusion of non-fictionality, the paradoxical nature of letters, and the flexibility of letters stemming from their status on the edge of literature.
By extracting from his private experiences matters of universal importance, Norwid created an epistolary "I" that remained consistent throughout his life and was subordinated to wider social, national and philosophical concerns.

Cyprian Norwid, born in a small village outside Warsaw, is perhaps one of the most interesting figures in the canon of Polish writers.
Cyprian's mother died when he was four and her husband followed her 10 years later.
Norwid's conviction of his own genius remained throughout, and on more than one occasion he took umbrage with the literary critics of the day in his poetry.

 Letters: SR, April 2005
As regards Czaykowski, I pay tribute to “his poetic sensibility and his deep understanding of Norwid.” Brajerska-Mazur and Czaykowski may not be native English speakers, but I am prepared to claim that their command of the language exceeds that of some 90 percent of the native speakers in the United States and Great Britain.
If notoriously obscure poets like Norwid and Emily Dickinson are indeed not untranslatable, perhaps prose translations combined with glosses and notes can provide a more direct and intimate reading experience for the general reader than versified renditions.
The prevailing tendency to claim that Soviet mass murders of Poles in Spring 1940 included only military officers distorts history and is disappointing to the families of the thousands of civilian prisoners who had been imprisoned and executed together with the military.

 Warsaw Voice - Cyprian Kamil Norwid (1821-1883): Part Two   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
This week we return to the poetry of the Romantic poet Cyprian Kamil Norwid (see Part One in Nov. 2, 1997 Voice), with a poem that reveals something of the workings of his classical mind.
With the exception of a few special translations of Horace's poetry, Norwid's classical material is personal and unique, inspired by his travels through Italy and Greece.
In this week's poem, Norwid muses upon the decadence of ancient Rome, where citizens took delight in the spectacle of men fighting to the death and the mass slaughter of condemned men and women.

 POLISH CULTURAL INSTITUTE
Krzystof Kamil Baczynski (1921-1944), though his life was cut short in the Warsaw Uprising, is one of the most outstanding and extraordinary poets Poland has ever produced.
Cyprian Norwid, born 1821, was orphaned in early childhood, left Poland forever at 21, was befriended by Chopin, traveled widely, even to America, was dogged by financial crises, arrested for debt, and from 1854 lived in Paris, forced to spend his final years in a hostel for Polish orphans and veterans.
Single-minded and largely self-taught, he created a unique and seemingly uninfluenced brand of poetry that was only recognized long after his death as among the best of Polish literature.

The Myth of Sparta in Juliusz Słowacki and Cyprian Norwid’s Dramas:
Influenced by philhellenism and driven by the inspiration coming from his voyage to the East, Słowacki creates a vision of Sparta–Poland and a concept of a heroic individual in his literary output.
On the other hand, Norwid’s reception of Antiquity has a less national character, it is more a reflection upon the identity and future of European culture, defined by its two most significant traditions: pagan Antiquity and Christianity.

 Norwid
Poet, philosopher, sculptor, draftsman, historian of art, simple worker - Cyprian Kamil Norwid was the only of the four great Polish Romantics to have set foot in the United States, where he spent sad and lonely two years.
Although initially appreciated in his lifetime, ended his life in a Paris poorhouse.
His major works, few of which appeared in his lifetime, include Promethidion (1851), a treatise on art in verse and a collection of poems, Vade-mecum (written 1865-6, published 1947).

Two great Poles — Norwid and Malevitch — had that “universal language’ (I say this without forgetting the profound “Russianness” of the great Kazimir).
Poetry does not create an inert melody preserved in language, but the Verb and the Doing turned in a new way “with crackings” of the Master-Builder / here I am once more in complete solidarity with Cyprian Norwid /.
* According to Norwid (1821-1883), the “consummatum” is the synthesis of the “Letter” which is the thesis (of an “incompleted” work, with no hidden meaning) and the “Spirit” which is the antithesis (“Unsaid”-”Complement,” “silence).
