The aim of this article is presenting the literary portraits of children in selected novels and humoresques written by Maria Sadowska (1835?-1892, she used the pen name Zbigniew) in relationships with family, peers, social environment, and therefore in the literary images of her child characters. Sadowska is the author of humoresques, novels of manners, realistic and fantasy novels, which ironically and humorously presents the contemporary social roles, including roles assigned to children. Sadowska, who created a gallery of children literary portraits, is a sensitive psychologist: she moves the reader, makes us think about the fate of a young character. The writer clearly condemns the so-cial acceptance for child abuse (both physical and mental) and the lack of understanding by members of families who were not often able to be beloved mothers or fathers. The author sees the child as a separate entity, which has its own psyche, dreams, concerns and her/his unique inner world. The images of a child in the prose of Sadowska corresponds with those elaborated in romantic prose and realistic prose from the second half of the nineteenth century. In the 180th anniversary of the birth of Maria Sadowska, it is worth taking the oppor-tunity to recall this interesting author hiding under a male pseudonym, who does not hesitate to criticize the model of contemporary Polish society, together with the positivists, for whom the aim of literature was to fulfill an important social mission. The literary voice of Sadowska can thus be seen in the mainstream of positivist aspirations, where the child became a full-fledged and the main literary hero.
