Polish poet and dramatist. He published his poems in the collections Poezje (1869, 1872, 1880, 1894). He began his literary career in 1864-65. The fullest expression of his intellectualised poetry is the series of 30 sonnets, Nad glebiami (1883-94), owing to which Asnyk came to be referred to as "a poet-philosopher." This series comprises the poet's philosophical system, which was an attempt at reconciling idealism with positivist realism and scientism. He was leading poet of positivism period in polish literature.
