Antoni Lange – poeta metafizyczny XIX stulecia. Barokowe konteksty "Rozmyślań"
Antoni Lange – metaphisical poety of the 19th century. The baroque context of "Rozmyślania" ("Musings")
Languages of publication
The article is devoted to the relationship between "Rozmyślania" ["Musings"] by Antoni Lange and the baroque poetics, with special focus on the sixteenth and seventeenth century metaphysical poetry. The starting point is the stylistic perspective – Lange’s cycle was interpreted as the nineteenth century creative implementation of metaphysical style elements, formed in the Baroque. The fragments of "Rozmyślania" ["Musings"] are compared to the poetry of Mikołaj Sęp Szarzyński, Daniel Naborowski, Sebastian Grabowiecki and Jan Andrzej Morsztyn. The perspective of the Polish Baroque was extended to the European context, most of all to the English metaphysical poetry. The significant issues are Lange’s conceptismo and his attitude towards art as a value.
