Tuwim, who was born in Lodz, was one of the outstanding Polish poets of the first half of the 20 th century. His mother, an assimilationist, educated him in a staunchly Polish spirit. Tuwim studied in Warsaw and was one of the founders of the literary group associated with the Skamander monthly. Here his hero was the ordinary man suffering from poverty and oppression. The last work appeared in full ten years later in Despite his clearly expressed sympathy for the poor, Tuwim was remote from the proletarian revolutionary movement at this period, his poems merely voicing an isolated intellectual's protest against the grim effects of the capitalist system.

He was a major figure in Polish literature , admired also for his contribution to children's literature. Tuwim was born into a family of assimilated Jews. His parents, Izydor and Adela, provided Julian with a comfortable middle class upbringing. He was not a particularly diligent student and had to repeat the sixth grade. Initially Tuwim's poetry, even more than that of the other "Skamandrites", represented a decisive break with turn-of-theth-century mannerism. It was characterized by an expression of vitality, optimism, in praise of urban life. His poems celebrated everyday life in the city, with its triviality and vulgarity.
