MARIA PAWLIKOWSKA-JASNORZEWSKA’S FOUR UNKNOWN LETTERS FROM THE YEARS 1935–1939
Languages of publication
The four letters by Maria Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska (1891–1945) to Rosa Bailly (1890–1976), a French poetess, Polish literature translator, founder of Les Amis de la Pologne association, attest to the friendship the two women developed in the 1930s, to their intimacy and reciprocal admiration of one another’s poetry. The letters, making up a fragment of their correspondence, have survived in Rosa Bailly’s archive in The Polish Library in Paris. Three of the aforementioned letters date back to 1935 and 1936 and touch upon first and foremost the translation of Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska’s poems into French and her family situation after Maria’s marriage to Stefan Jerzy Jasnorzewski, while the fourth letter, dated November 1939, is devoted to the plans of leaving Romania for Paris.
