Zapolska, Gabriela (1857–1921)

pseudonym of Gabriela Korwin-Piotrowska
Polish dramatist. She wrote novels, short stories, and theatre reviews, but is best
known for her plays, which deliver sharp, comic invective against provincial middleclass hypocrisy. The tragi-farce
Moralnosc pani Dulskiej/The Morality of Mrs Dulski
(1907) is regarded as a classic of the Polish theatre.
