'Perhaps some day I'll disappear forever,' muses the master-builder Psymmachus in Cyprian Kamil Norwid's Cleopatra and Caesar, 'Becoming one with my work...' Today, exactly two hundred years from the poet's birth, it is difficult not to hear Norwid speaking through the lips of his character.The greatest poet of the second phase of Polish Romanticism, Norwid, like Gerard Manley Hopkins in England, created a new poetic idiom so ahead of his time, that he virtually 'disappeared' from the artistic consciousness of his homeland until his triumphant rediscovery in the twentieth century.Chiefly lauded for his lyric poetry, Norwid also created a corpus of dramatic works astonishing in their breadth, from the ShakespeareanCleopatra and Caesarcited above, through the mystical dramasWandaandKrakus, the Unknown Prince, both of which foretell the monumental style of StanisA aw WyspiaA ski, whom Norwid influenced, and drawing-room comedies such asPure Love at the Sea BathsandThe Ring of the Grande Damewhich combine great satirical humour with a philosophical depth that can only be compared to the later plays of T.S. Eliot.All of these works, and more, are collected in Charles S. Kraszewski's English translation of Norwid'sDramatic Works, which along with the major plays also includes selections from Norwid's short, lyrical dramatic sketches - something along the order of Pushkin'sLittle Tragedies.Cyprian Kamil Norwid'sDramatic Workswill be a valuable addition to the library of anyone who loves Polish Literature, Romanticism, or theatre in general.
