Cyprian Kamil Norwid was a Polish writer (1821-1883).

His work, rediscovered today, provides an insight into the mind of an artist trying to make sense of the world in his unique way - through his religion, upbringing, language and history.

Having his work read by future generations was one of his hopes.
