Who is the national poet of Poland?

Mickiewicz is widely considered as Poland's national poet and a venerated figure in Lithuania. He is also regarded as one of the most important Slavic and European poets.

Mickiewicz was born on 3 April 1798 in Żagań, then part of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. His father was a wealthy landowner who served as a senator in the Lithuanian Sejm. Mickiewicz showed an early interest in literature and poetry. When he was only fifteen, his first poem was published in a newspaper in Wilno (Vilnius). A few years later, he moved to Warsaw where he worked as a journalist for several newspapers including the Gazeta Polska which became famous after the French Revolution. In 1821, Mickiewicz went back home and entered local government service but was soon lured back into journalism by another newspaper in Vilnius called The Free Press. In 1826, he finally decided to settle down and built a house near his birthplace. There, he wrote many poems including two books that have never been published in full until now: Dzieła ("Works") and Pisma króla Bolesława ("Letters from King Boleslav").

In 1893, President Grover Cleveland invited Mickiewicz to come to America and give speeches about his country.

Why are so many people leaving Poland for the UK?

A reading of Adam Mickiewicz, one of Poland's most famous romantic poets, emphasizes this: his most widely read poem discussed desire for the Polish country from abroad. When individuals leave Poland for employment in the twenty-first century, major historical antecedents are re-enacted, whether knowingly or unconsciously. These include the Irish exodus to England after the 1690s William and Mary regime or the Italian exodus to America after 1815.

Poland's modern history also includes forced migrations. During and following World War II, millions of Poles were expelled from Soviet territory under the terms of the Potsdam Agreement. More recently, following its invasion of Ukraine in 2014, Russia arrested several hundred Poles and charged them with espionage and other crimes related to the conflict.

The UK has long been a destination of choice for Europeans looking for better opportunities. In fact, between 2007 and 2016, there were more than 1 million net departures from Poland, mostly to the UK and Germany. The main reason for leaving is that Poland's economy has been declining since it joined the EU in 2004. The price of oil, which accounts for nearly 10% of Poland's exports, has fallen dramatically since 2011 when it was above $100 per barrel. This has had an adverse effect on the country's economy, which is dominated by energy production and trade.

There have also been protests in Poland against what many view as government corruption and increasing authoritarianism.

Who was the leader of Romanticism in Poland?

Elements of mysticism began to emerge. There was the poeta wieszcz's concept (the prophet). The wieszcz (bard) served as the spiritual head of the nation while it fought for freedom. Adam Mickiewicz was the most well-known poet to get this honor. He wanted to make a difference by writing poems that would help his countrymen deal with their suffering and give them hope.

Romanticism was a movement in European art, literature, philosophy, and music between 1776 and 1832. It was inspired by ideas of antiquity but also reflected the concerns and conditions of its time. Philosophically, it emphasized the individual's relationship with God and his or her feelings rather than reason alone. Artistically, it sought inspiration from nature but also used imagination to create new things.

Poland had its own version of romanticism called golden age poetry. Writers such as Henryk Sienkiewicz, Juliusz Slowikowski, and Zofia Nałkowska were among those who wrote about the past glory of Poland. They wanted to show that Poland could produce great writers and artists even though it was under foreign rule.

In Poland, romanticism evolved into national poetry. National poets expressed their love for their country through words and deeds. They fought for independence from Russia and Austria.
