The second great poet of the romantic school who appeared in Poland after Mickiewicz was Julius Slowacki (1809-1849), born at Krzemieniec. In 1831 he left his native country and chose Paris as his residence, where he died.
The life of Slowacki has been published by Professor Anton Malecki in two volumes.
Mickiewicz and Slowacki were both more or less mystics, but even more we may assign this characteristic to Sigismund Krasinski, who was born in 1812 at Paris, and died there in 1859.
His friend Slowacki answered them in some taunting verses, and this led to a quarrel between the poets.
In some of the flights of his muse he reminds us of Slowacki, in the melody of his verse of Zaleski.
