STANISLAW WYSPIANSKI, NON OMNIS MORIAR
Languages of publication
This year's 100th anniversary of Stanislaw Wyspianski's death may well be an occasion to revisit the mostly forgotten publications whose authors paid tribute to the great dramatist. What is striking about the vast outpouring of occasional verse, elegies, poetic obituaries, personal reminiscences, essays and studies is their uniformly lofty tone and high-flown patriotism. The true significance of all those commemorative tributes exceeds their documentary role as a record of the solemn atmosphere and patriotic grandeur of Wyspianski's funeral. They played a major role in creating a handful of stereotypes and giving shape to the Wyspianski myth, which determined the reception of his work for decades to come, especially in the interwar period.
