The subject of the article is Juliusz Slowacki's literary activity in the first period of his stay in Paris (September 1831 - December 1832), after the collapse of the Polish November Insurrection (1830-1831), among the Polish émigrés and in the French communities (among others, his contacts with Marc-Antoine Jullien, the editor of 'Revue encyclopédique'). Slowacki prepares his literary debut ('Poezje' (Poetry), vol. 1-2, 1832), strives for his recognition by critics and considers writing in French. The aim of the paper is a description of the relation between Slowacki's literary pieces in Polish and in French (En s'éveillant nous suit de ses regards pensifs..., Le Roi de Ladawa, Béatrix Cenci) and an explanation of the reason of his failure in reaching a satisfactory literary position.
