Franciszek Mirandola

(1871–1930) was born Franciszek Pik. He was a poet, prose writer, and translator. He came from an accomplished family with a patriotic and intellectual legacy. Influenced by his father, he entered the Faculty of Pharmaceutics at the Jagiellonian University, though his interests lay elsewhere. He made his debut in Krakow in 1898 with Liber tristum, which was very warmly received by the critics. He published poems and short stories in a variety of journals in Krakow and throughout Galicja. Although his work was of great artistic quality, he is mainly remembered as a translator. Some sources claim that he translated Italian, French, English, German, and Scandinavian literature, altogether over two hundred works of poetry and prose.
