ALEKSANDER FREDRO

“A count and comic playwright, writer of fables and memoirs, poet. Born on the 20th of June 1793, at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains in Surochów near Przemyśl to a wealthy noble family.

Fredro's writing coincided with two great eras in Polish literature: Romanticism and Positivism. Today, he is best known as a comic playwright, but one should not forget that he was also great at writing poems for kids.”
