Long a symbol of opposition to totalitarianism, he received the 1980 Nobel Literary Prize for his lifelong poetic achievements amid the heady atmosphere of the Polish Solidarity movement's bold challenge to Soviet-style communist rule.
Initially a supporter of Poland's Soviet-imposed post-war regime, he served in its diplomatic corps from 1945 to 1950 before becoming disillusioned with communism and defecting in 1951.
He made his home in France before moving to the United States in 1960 where he taught literature at the University of California in Berkeley, wrote poetry and translated English literature into Polish.
In the 1990s, after Poland's largely peaceful revolution from communism to democracy he returned to Poland and settled in Krakow.
