Norwid’s forgotten manuscript in the collections of the National Library of Ukraine in Kiev

Title variants
Languages of publication
The article presents the place of keeping (National Library of Ukraine in Kiev), the state of preservation and the juxtaposition with well-known publications of one of Norwid’s late poems, which is a kind of ironic mockery of the idolatry attitude of the French Republic of that time towards Victor Hugo. The manuscript has not been previously used as an important material in any editorial compilations of Norwid’s works; they used the first print of the poem published as part of Władysław Chodźkiewicz’s feature in the Warsaw periodical “Bluszcz” 1880, vol. 39, and its copy, which Chodźkiewicz received from Norwid. The article presents textual differences (relating mainly to punctuation) between the known versions of the poem and its Kyivan autograph.
