Norwid’s Ancient Rome

Magdalena Karamucka

Abstract

The issue of the dissertation is to present the complex, ambivalent Norwid’s relation with the ancient Romanitas and the wide range of his references to the Roman antiquity. Hitherto there have not been any monographs on this subject. The first parts of the dissertation investigate the different meanings that Rome presented to Norwid and the poet’s visits to the Eternal City. As the introduction there is also an analysis of the significance of Italy and also Greek and Roman antiquity in the 19th century. The next chapter is focused on the Norwid’s relation with the history of the ancient Rome and its representatives. Within the scope of this topic the following issues are specifically examined: problem of state and nation in the ancient Rome, the turn of the eras and relation between Roma pagana and Roma Christiana, inter alia in the poem Quidam. The third chapter investigates Norwid’s view of the literature and art of the ancient Rome (also its ruins). Among the literary questions, aside from origins and character of the Roman literature, it analyses the references to the Roman “literary world” repeatedly used by Norwid to write about his own struggles with publishers, critics and readers. The last and the most philological chapter examines how the “Roman imagination” of Norwid influenced his poetry. There is also analysis of Norwid’s translations of the poems by Horace and Ovid. Furthermore, there is also presented the mechanism of the specific “Roman identity” that appears ,among others, in the correspondences by Norwid.
