Secrets of Lord Singelworth’s secret
Languages of publication
This article presents the figure of the Venetian historical improviser Tonin di Bonagrazia, one of the protagonists of Norwid’s novel Tajemnica lorda Singelworth [Lord Singelworth’s Secret]. The author reached the article mentioned by the poet in the footnote to the novella and image of the Italian actor and she put together the knowledge of the era with Norwid’s artistic creation. In the second part of the article, the author also pointed to the yet hypothetical inspiration for the title character of the novella – presumably the Greek poet Dionisios Solomos.
