Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz (Witkacy), a writer, playwright, poet, painter, photographer, philosopher and an art theoretician. Witkacy was a visionary ahead of his times, and yet a concretely pungent prankster, whose cutting-egde judgement and catastrophic prophesies allow new generations to rediscover his work time and again. One of the few Polish artists whose significance for world art history endures the test of time.

Jadwiga Kosicka was born and educated in Poland. She has translated numerous works from Polish which have appeared in many scholarly journals such as Theatre Quarterly, Theatre Three, Formations, The Polish Review, yale/theatre, New York Review of Books, Performing Arts Journal, SEEP (formerly called Soviet and East European Performance), among others. She has also translated and edited To Steal a March on God by Hanna Krall and A Dream by Felicja Kruszewska published by Routledge Harwood's Polish and East European Theatre Archive; and Jan Kott's autobiography, Still Alive (Yale University Press); and Zygmunt H�bner's Theater and Politics (Northwestern University Press), among others. With her late husband, Daniel Gerould--a professor of theatre at the Graduate Center CUNY (www.danielgerouldarchives.org)--she has done a number of translations of works by Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, and also co-authored A Life of Solitude, a biographical study of Stanislawa Przybyszewska, among others.
