Adam Mickiewicz >>
The cultural influence of Vilna University produced the poet Mickiewicz and others.
These beautiful elegies have been justly praised by Mickiewicz; they are enough to raise Kochanowski far above the level of a merely artificial poet.
This species of poetry was afterward to be carried to great perfection by Mickiewicz and Gaszynski.
Mickiewicz is very loud in his praise, and considers him one of the best followers of Theocritus.
