Franciszka Urszula Radziwiłłowa: Selected Drama and Verse

P. Corness (Editor), B. Judkowiak (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology or Edited Book


This edition presents, for the first time in English, a selection from the repertoire of the first Polish woman dramatist, Princess Franciszka Urszula Radziwiłłowa (1705–1753), with a historical-biographical Introduction incorporating interpretations of her works. Radziwiłłowa’s plays treated complex issues concerning intimate relationships. In her poetry she explored new, very personal, means of expression for intimate declarations, in a form of language capable of conveying the emotional distress that could not find expression under existing conventions.
