Father Józef Baka (1707-1780), a third-rate Polish poet of the Baroque period, was frequentiy a target for mockery during the Age of Enlightenment and in later centuries. Critics derided the queer form of his poems and contested their literary value. His poems were often parodied. One of the parodists was Aleksander Wehyra Darowski (1815-1874) who parodied Father Baka in his 'Diariusz podrózy do Warszawy' (The Diary of a Journey to Warsaw), a popular book which ran into four editions. In accordance to his taste for literary mystifications, Darowski gave the diary the form of an authentic account, allegedly created in the 18 century. However, none of the researchers into the works of Darowski has pointed out the Diary, a scanting satire on the nobility's conservatism, plagiarised an article which in 1817 appeared in 'Wiadomosci Brukowe' (Street News), a periodical published in Vilnius.
