Dialogi pisarzy młodopolskich z Lillą Wenedą Juliusza Słowackiego
Modernist writers’ dialogues with “Lilla Weneda” by Juliusz Słowacki
Languages of publication
this article analyzes connections between the romantic idea of spiritual development and modernist search for the truth of existence. the patron of activities directed in this way was Juliusz Słowacki, whose works and life inscribed in artistic-philosophical actions of modernist artists and the text which most fully expressed the analyzed issues was the drama entitled Lilla Weneda. Modernist writers, for whom the problems of the strength of the character, the will, inner transformation or lack of it, initiated a dialogue with the tragedy by Balladyna’s author in their texts (w. Berent Próchno , M. wolska Swanta, a. Lange Wenedzi, J.a. kisielewski, Sonata). this dialogue took place along several lines (fate, symbolism of a ritual, the figure of a priestess, mysterious objects, the figure of the Bride, the idea of wedding, the desire to be reborn). the present analysis has indicated strong semantic-symbolic connections between the text by Juliusz Słowacki and his modernist ‘interlocutors’.
