Wladyslaw Stanislaw Reymont

Wladyslaw Stanislaw Reymont was born (May 7, 1867) in the village of Kobiele Wielkie, near Radomsko as one of nine children of Józef Rejment, an organist. He spent his childhood in Tuszyn, after his father moved there to work in a richer parish. After a few years of education in the local school he was sent by his father to Warsaw into the care of his eldest sister and her husband to teach him his vocation of journeyman tailor (1885) - the only formal certificate of his education for profession in which he did not work a single day.

Reymont's literary output includes about 30 extensive volumes of prose. In November 1924 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for his work Chlopi (The Peasants, 1904- 1909). Reymont could not take part in the ceremony in Sweden due to his heart illness. The certificate and a cheque for 116,718 Swedish kroner were sent to France where he was being treated.

In 1925, when his heart recovered somewhat, he went to a farmers' meeting in Wierzchoslawice near Kraków, where Wincenty Witos welcomed him as a member of PSL "Piast" (the Polish Peasant Party) and praised his writing skills. Soon after that event, Reymont's health deteriorated. He died in Warsaw and was buried in the Powazki Cemetery. The urn with his heart was laid in one of the pillars of the Holy Cross Church.
