Stanislaw Rozewicz
Tadeusz Różewicz, one of the most outstanding contemporary Polish poets and playwrights died in the western city of April 24, aged 92 from natural causes.

He was one of the most innovative, versatile and creative authors of the Polish and international avant-garde.

Różewicz has written highly acclaimed volumes of poetry, over a dozen plays and several screenplays. In addition to plays and poetry, he was the author of novels, short stories, and works of nonfiction.

Różewicz became a key figure in Poland's 'Theatre of the Absurd', as exemplified by his debut play “The Card Index” (Kartoteka, 1960).

Some of his best known plays include “The Witnesses, or Our Little Stabilization” (Świadkowie albo nasza mała stabilizacja, 1962), "The Old Woman Broods" (Stara kobieta wysiaduje, 1968). "The Interrupted Act" (Akt przerywany, 1970), and "The White Wedding" (Białe małżeństwo, 1975).

Różewicz was the 2007 winner of the Prix Européen de Littérature, among many other international and Polish honours. His New Poems collection was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2008.
