A noted Polish poet; born at Bohaterka in the Ukraine, 1802; died near Paris, 1886. He passed his childhood in immediate intercourse with the Cossacks, but afterwards studied at Warsaw. After the revolution of 1830, he was obliged to leave Poland, and went to France. Many of his poems depict in vivid colors the scenery of his native country. His chief works are: "The Spirit of the Steppes" (1842); "The Most Holy Family"; and collections of shorter poems.
