Abstract

Vincenz’s Carpathians. Myth — mountains — literature

 

The present article examines literary analogies in descriptions of the landscape in various distant areas of the Carpathians. The vision of Chornohora and its inhabitants created by Stanisław Vincenz in his tetralogy Na wysokiej połoninie [On the High Mountain Pastures] is confronted here with selected descriptions of the Tatras and the Pieniny Range in works of past and contemporary Polish writers. The striking similarities testify on the one hand to Vincenz’s excellent knowledge of the literature devoted to the Carpathians, and on the other — to the landscape and cultural unity of the entire range. In addition, Vincenz’s extraordinarily vivid, mythologised vision affects the perception of the entire Carpathians, constituting a kind of “imagination score.”
