Summary/Abstract: This article is dedicated to the recently deceased prof. Marian Maciejewski, an outstanding scholar of Polish Romantic literature. Maciejewski authored groundbreaking studies on the epoch’s literary genetics (the gawęda, the poetic novel), detailed discussions of the lyrical works produced by the most outstanding Polish poets of the first half of the nineteenth century (Malczewski, Słowacki, Mickiewicz), and a book on Mickiewicz’s Lausanne works. Besides his emphasis on literary genetics, these studies presented the Polish Romantics’ achievements against the backdrop of the evolution of verbal art. What is more, Maciejewski is the author of the kerygmatic criticism project, which many have seen as controversial. This article sketches out the scholar’s work, attempting to evaluate his most important achievements in the context of Polish literary studies, and opens up to a reflection on possible developments in research on Polish literature.
