The essay is an interpretation of Tuwim’s cabaret song maintained in a street ballad style, Ostatnia dziewica, which was written for a Qui Pro Quo star Mira Zimińska. Ostatnia dziewica is a parody of the folk song Za Ebru falą, one of the most popular compositions of the 19th century. Tuwim’s work is a witty comment on a literary and social image of spinsterhood. Although Tuwim considered his cabaret creation as a commercial and lowbrow product, he never abandoned the frivolous muse. Not only was this first “mass poet” the main author the Qui Pro Quo, he also provided songs, sketches and monologues (signed with one of his thirty three pseudonyms) to numerous variété theatres. He was a co-founder of the Pikador literary cabaret and collaborated with cabarets Bi-Ba-Bo, Miraż, Czarny Kot, Sfinks, Perskie Oko, Banda, Cyganeria, Stara Banda and Cyrulik Warszawski.
