Władysław Reymont's 145th Birthday - Google Doodle May 07, 2012

Google doodle today May 07, 2012 in Poland, come with a theme Władysław Reymont's 145th Birthday.

Władysław Stanisław Reymont (Kobiele Wielkie, May 7, 1867 – December 5, 1925, Warsaw) was a Polish novelist, writer and novelist, one of the main representatives of realism with elements of naturalism in fiction of Young Polish. And the 1924 laureate of the Nobel Prize in Literature.
His best-known work is the award-winning four-volume novel Chłopi (The Peasants).

Reymont's baptism certificate lists his original surname as Stanisław Władysław Rejment. The change of name from "Rejment" to "Reymont" was made by the author himself during his publishing debut, as it was supposed to protect him, in the Russian part of Poland, from any potential trouble for having already published in Galicia a work not allowed under the Tsar's censorship. Kazimierz Wyka, an enthusiast of Reymont's work, believes that the correction could also have been meant to remove any association with the word rejmentować, which in some local Polish dialects means "to swear".
