Jan Kochanowski, a poet, translator and playwright, was the greatest Polish poetic genius until Romanticism arrived. Moreover, he was the first poet of such brilliance in Poland. He was born 1530 in Sycyna and died 1584 in Lublin. Among other of his works, we will review his Treny (Laments) which were modelled on lamentations and songs of mourning of Greek poetry. They were inspired by the death of the poet's infant daughter Urszula.
