Gruszecki, Artur


Born Aug. 24, 1852, in Sambor; died Apr. 16, 1929, in Warsaw. Polish writer.

From 1884 to 1888 Gruszecki published the weekly Wedro-wiec, which represented the views of the adherents of naturalism in literature. Gruszecki was one of the first Polish writers to depict the Uves of workers and their hard labor in mines and factories, for example, the novel The Moles (1897; Russian translation, The Coal Miners, 1900). The novels The Locusts (vols. 1–2, 1899; Russian translation, 1903) and The Vanquished (1899; Russian translation, 1901) portray the national oppression of Silesian Poles by the Germans. Gruszecki also wrote historical novellas for young people.
