Zygmunt Krasiński’s intercourse with German literature. An episode from the history of the German-Polish romantic culture transfer

The intercourse with the German literature and philosophy was an important factor for Zygmunt Krasiński’s intellectual biography. German literature was to him a truly aesthetic experience and inspiration, which he many times admitted. The most important German-speaking authors were Jean Paul, Novalis, Hegel, Friedrich Schlegel, and Goethe, whose Faust had a significant impact on the Nie-Boska komedia. Interesting reading and insight into the reception of the German culture is offered by Krasiński’s rich correspondence, which can be treated as a kind of commentary to the works of the Germans he read. The Polish romantic saw the key to the understanding of German poetry and speculative philosophy in pantheism, to which he himself had an ambivalent attitude.
