About the Author:

Tomasz Rózycki, a contemporary Polish poet and translator, was born in 1970 in Opole (Silesia, south-western part of Poland, a region that bears the mark of a distinct mixture of cultures). Rózycki studied Romance Languages at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. Alongside his work he translated poetry from French, publishing a translation of Stéphane Mallarmé's Un coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard in 2005. He is the author of five collections of poems to great acclaim: Vaterland (1997), Anima (1999), Chata umaita (2001), Swiat i antyswiat (2003) as well as the long epic poem Dwanascie stacji (2004), for which he was awarded the Koscielski Prize, the most prestigious literary prize for Polish writers under forty. He thus joined the ranks of Poland's most important writers, among them Slawomir Mrozek, Zbigniew Herbert, and Adam Zagajewski. His later work, Kolonie (2007), brings together seventy-seven poems whose exotic titles such as "Tawerna w porcie" (Tavern at the Harbour), "Ziemia Ognista" (Fire Earth), and "Cynamon i gozdziki" (Cinnamon and Cloves) present a striking contrast to the depictions of everyday Polish country life and the melancholic thoughts they contain. His work has been translated into numerous European languages and published in Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, and Slovakia. Rózycki has also received the Krzysztof Kamil Baczynski Prize, the Joseph Brodski Prize from Zeszyty Literackie, and has been nominated twice for the Nike Prize, Poland's most important literary award. He lives in his native city Opole with his wife and two children.
