Summary/Abstract: The book Cyprian Norwid. A Poet of the Nineteenth Century is first and foremost devoted to Norwid’s poetic oeuvre. For the author of the monograph, a major point of contention remains treating Norwid mainly as a brilliant philosopher and theologian, which has lately become quite customary. The monograph addresses the issue of Norwid’s belonging to a particular literary period: until not so long ago, it seemed obvious to everyone that he was a Romantic, and this view has only recently been challenged. Hence the title of the book – indicating the complexity of the Norwid phenomenon, the poet whose output cannot be contained within a single artistic movement and who, therefore, needs to be studied through a prism of the “nineteenth-century-ness” concept that has been advanced in the recent years.
