Mikolaj Sep Szarzynski (c. 1550 - c. 1581) was an influential Polish poet of the late Renaissance who wrote in both Polish and Latin. He was a pioneer of the Baroque and the greatest representative of the metaphysical movement of the era in Poland. His love poems are often classed as mannerist. Jan Blonski has called Sep Szarzynski a "mystical poet full of abstraction ", and Wiktor Weintraub has called him "the most outstanding poet of the times of Jan Kochanowski ". The poet's status in the history of Polish literature is controversial.
