Boleslaw Prus *

a.k.a. Aleksander Glowacki

Author Code: OBPR

Born: Aug. 20, 1847 - Hrubieszow, Poland

Died: May 19, 1912 - Warsaw, Poland

Born in the Russian-controlled section of Poland, Prus left school at 15 to fight in the 1863 Polish Uprising. He suffered serious injuries in the battle of Bialka and was imprisoned for a time at Lublin Castle. When he was released, he returned to his chooling, first at the Lublin Gymnasium and subsequently at Warsaw University. He left university due to financial difficulties, but later studied at the Pulawy Agriculture and Forestry Institute. He was later expelled and thereafter studied on his own while earning a meagre living as a tutor. In 1872, he began a career as a journalist and began writing a successful weekly column. His interest in mathematics and science strongly influenced a number of his works for which he often used his real name of Glowacki. He adopted the pseudonym of Prus, which was derived from the family coat of arms. In 1882, he became editor of the Warsaw-based Nowiny newspaper, however the paper failed after a year. Prus was a lifelong agoraphobic, which greatly affected his travel and his life. Nevertheless, he emerged as one of Poland's greatest authors. In addition to his journalistic work and numerous stories, his works include Souls in Bondage (1877), The Outpost (1886), The Doll (1887), The Paris Tower (1887), The New Woman (1893), Pharaoh (1894), Ode to Youth (1905) and Visions of the Future (1909).
