  1. A Polish poet and novelist; born in Ieziorno, near Warsaw, March 30, 1809; died at Aix, Provence, Oct. 8, 1866. His early literary career was interfered with by the distracted condition of his country, and he took refuge in France in 1831. Among his productions, "Songs of a Polish Pilgrim"; "Recollections of an Officer"; "Poems"; "Stories and Scenes from Aristocratic Life"; and two or three others, are prominent. He wrote in both Polish and French, and the literary studies to which he devoted himself in Provence are widely quoted as authorities on its language and people.
