Tarcia polemiczne, „responsy” i trawestacje w szermierce poetyckiej schyłku XVIII wieku

Title variants

Polemic frictions, responses and travesties in the poetic skirmish of the end of the XVIII century

Languages of publication



The author refers solely to coexisting polemic poetic works (prints and manuscripts) adhering to a literary convention of an initiating text. The poems treat significant events from the final years of the First Polish Republic and became the seed bed of the ideological struggle. Their polemic character was usually indicated in their titles beginning with words such as answer, reply, response, travesty, “tit for tat”, or with prepositions “on” (“on poetry”) or “to” (“to the author”). Perhaps they would not have won much renown if it was not for their presence in poetic skirmish. This paper indicates various battle methods used by polemicists and the propaganda impact of these works.
