Zimorowic, Jozef Bartlomiej.
Zimorowic, Jozef Bartlomiej or Zimorowicz, Jozef Bartlomiej, original name Jozef Bartlomiej Ozimek (b. Aug. 20, 1597, Lwow, Pol. [now Lviv, Ukraine]--d. Oct. 14, 1677, Lwow)
Polish writer who was a prolific author of satirical and erotic epigrams.
When well-advanced in years, Zimorowic published a series of verse descriptions of Ukrainian peasant life, Sielanki nowe ruskie (1663; "New Ruthenian Idylls"), under the name of his more gifted younger brother Szymon (1608-29). This collection also included two versified narratives of the Cossack rebellion in 1648-49 against Polish rule in Ukraine, Kozaczyzna ("The Cossacks") and Burda Ruska ("The Ruthenian Skirmish").
