Title variants

Orality, Literacy, and the 19th-Century Criticism of the Print Civilization. The Norwid Case

Languages of publication



The article starts with a brief overview of the problems of the media studies approach to Polish Romanticism. The aim of the introductory remarks is to pinpoint possible research directions in this respect. Then I elaborate one of them in the main argument of my text. The media studies approach (following W. Ong, E. Havelock and J. Goody) is used to view Cyprian Norwid's oeuvre as a literary reflection on the media as culture creators, and also to analyze how complex media environment influences Norwid's poetry.
