Emilia Kiereś’s dialogue with Romanticism

Keywords: Emilia Kiereś; Świteź; Świtezianka;Romanticism;
Summary/Abstract: The study familiarizes the readers with Łowy, the novel by Emilia Kiereś published in 2012, based on the motifs of two ballads by Adam Mickiewicz: Świteź and Świtezianka. The author of the article attempts to acquaint the young readers of Ballady i Romanse with the early times of its author . During the analysis and interpretation, the author of the article points to the romantic motifs and literary themes of the story, simultaneously demonstrating that the story of Emilia Kiereś has a double recipient. For a child it will be a story from the border of fairy tales and fantasy, for adults — a literary play, tempting to compare it with Mickiewicz’s ballads. The author of the study also exposes Emilia Kiereś’s association with Lithuania and her fascination with Mickiewicz’s works leading her to create her own story. If Łowy were included in the canon of school reading, it would be an excellent preparation for Romanticism and Mickiewicz’s ballads, and a fascinating reading adventure.
