The author interprets Cyprian Norwid's correspondence applying to it the categories of truth and word. From this perspective, Norwid's letters testify that the quest for truth, which one can attain through words only, was the most fundamental goal of the poet's life. The author also notes that word, on Norwid's conception of truth, is spiritual in nature, and, since it comes from God, it appears as an act of divine creation. An analysis of Norwid's correspondence leads the author of the article to the conclusion that truth and word are mutually dependent categories, both in Norwid's letters and in his poetry.
