Wladyslaw Reymont

a.k.a. Wladyslaw Stanislaus Reymont

Author Code: OWSR

Born: May 6, 1868 - Kobiele Wilkie, Poland

Died: Dec. 5, 1925 - Warsaw, Poland

Reymont received most of his education at home and from his uncle who was a curate. Through his uncle, he had access to the parish library where he read as much as he could. His father provided him with musical instruction, but Reymont's true interest was in writing. He began writing poetry when he was only nine. When he was older he moved to Warsaw, but was expelled by the Russians for suspected subversion. Reymont took various jobs over the next few years including surveyor, lumber salesman and actor in a touring company. He then began to write short stories with some success. In 1893, he returned to Warsaw and the following year published Pilgrimage to the Mountains of Life, which was well-received in literary circles. In 1896, he published his first novel, The Comedienne drawing on his theatrical experiences. In 1902, he moved to Paris and worked on his masterpiece, Peasants, the final volume of which appeared in 1909. He returned to Poland in 1914 where he remained, apart from some visits to the USA in 1919 and 1920, for the remainder of his life. In 1924, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. His other works include Ferments (1897), Justice (1899), The Dreamer (1910), ROK 1794 (1913-1918) and a large collection of short stories.
