MICHAL KAZIMIERZ OGINSKI AS A POET. THE CANNON OF TEXTS AND ATTRIBUTION PROBLEMS
Languages of publication
The article refers to Michal Kazimierz Oginski, the Grand Hetman of Lithuania, a patron of the arts, originator of an exceptionally remarkable artistic estate in Slonim, who was also an interesting poet. His poems were edited anonymously in four volumes. Bibliographers and literary historians (Bentkowski, Estreicher, Korbut) showed disagreement in the attribution of those poems. A part of them was attributed to Michal Kleofas Oginski, while a meritorious monographer of Oginski’s estate Andrzej Ciechanowski suggested Oginski’s cooperation with the Hetman’s secretaries in composing them. Still, an analysis of the manuscript of a collection of songs, the only volume signed with Oginski’s name and unknown to authors of earlier studies, and a stylistic analysis of the lyrics make it possible to state that Michal Kazimierz Oginski is the author of all the analysed volumes of poetry.
