Poetic prayers by Zygmunt Krasinski
Languages of publication
The poetical prayers by Zygmunt Krasiński are pessimistic about life. Their authors proves the tragedy of human existence. According to his poetical view nothing else is left but to say prayers for the grace of sudden death, which equals with human's liberation. The poems are - on the one hand - typical in the Catholic way of expression; on the other hand, due to Krasiński's desire of new afterlife connected with the existence despair, they went much beyond the Catholic outlook. Entire anthology of the lyrics is very much related to the poet's life, therefore it gets this particular autobiographical character.
