Summary/Abstract: Kornel Ujejski’s Dla Moskali, published in 1862, was a poetic reaction to patrioticdemonstrations in Warsaw and many other towns of Congress Poland, which preceeded theJanuary Uprising. In the foreword Ujejski strongly believes that the callous power of tsardomand the cruelty of Muscovite myrmidons will be defeated by the moral strength and prayers ofthe oppressed victims. Ujejski was an epigone in his forms of expression, he mostly rehashedromantic ideas. Nonetheless, he was able to create a new category – popular poetry, whichwas meant to reach more readers, who were eager to see inspirational examples of RussianEuropeanisation through Polish spirit.
