Languages of publication



The following sketch is the first attempt to address the issue that will enhance the knowledge about the specific vocabulary used in the creation of one of the famous representatives of Polish literature late 19th and early 20th centuries. Until now studies about works of Bolesław Prus were mostly carried out by experts in the analysis of literature regarding the interpretation of individual works or specific literary forms practiced by the writer’s assumptions influence philosophical thought and the events of his life in the shape of the poetic imagination and creativity. The works of Bolesław Prus ware not described from the lexical, hence my interest in this issue and the intention to fill the gap in this area of knowledge about the work of the writer. This time the concern was addressed by floral vocabulary, used by the writer.
