Synopsis

This book is the first monograph on the works of August Antoni Jakubowski, the son born out of wedlock of Antoni Malczewski. It was based on source materials, that include the copy of the manuscript of Posthumous Letters of the poet, in drawing Marcin Rosienkiewicz up, imported by the author of this book from Polish Library in Paris. This work is an effect of conducted examinations both in Poland, as well as in the USA, where Jakubowski spent final years of his tragic life, ended with the suicide at the age of twenty-one. Reaching to many unknown until now information concerning the life and the works of the author of the first published in the USA book about Polish history, literature and the culture, written in English, was possible thanks to the help of lawyer Przemysław Jan Bloch, the founder of the Blochs Foundation dealing with the restitution of objects associated with the Polish national legacy, lost after the first partition of Poland.
As a result of conducted researches the unknown so far facts from the life of Jakubowski, as well as unpublished works of the writer, as Major Alexander were brought to light. Th is work begins with discussing the state of the current research on the artistic work and the biography of Jakubowski what constitutes the attempt to put together both Polish and foreign sources about the son of Malczewski. The author of this book systematized the poetic oeuvre of the writer, discussed not-analysed earlier poems by Jakubowski: It is weary and The Exile’s Song.
Malczewski’s son’s poetry was collected in 1839 and prepared to publish by Marcin Rosienkiewicz, who was also an exile and August’s companion. However, the poetry was stored in the archives of the Polish Library in Paris for 132 years. In 1971 Julian Maślanka found it and, in 1973, published it. It has not also lived to see its monograph. It’s about time that Jakubowski returned from exile and took place due to him in the history of literature.
