Summary/Abstract: The book is an outcome of almost thirty-year-long scholarly experience of the author. It includes themes discussed during academic classes and lectures delivered as a part of Polish Philology course. Amongst the discussed creators are the likes of Adam Mickiewicz and Juliusz Słowacki, but also the less renowned ones. All of the foregoing is, however, seen by the author against the backdrop of other epochs in the arts and literature, especially the Enlightenment that directly preceded Romanticism, and dynamically progressing history of literature. And so, for instance, we may learn about notorious disputes involving representatives of Romantic and Classicist movements; folk-, nation-, and history-inspired Romanticism; the November Uprising, and the Great Emigration; Romantic Messianism; the semiotics of landscape, and the Genesis from the Spirit-period Słowacki. Therefore, the book is rather subjective yet legitimized by the acquired experience an angle on Romantic literature.
