Abstract

The article offers a new reading of the works by Maria Dąbrowska, who used to be perceived as a stoic. However, as it is argued, Dąbrowska’s stance is marked by the influence of the aesthetics of dark Romanticism. In her 1958 short text, “Sine Ira et Studio”, she defended Marek Hłasko, who was criticized for spreading pessimism and for his “dark” outlook on life. For Dąbrowska, dark aesthetics uncovers the mystery of the world, and does it in an engaging, fresh way. That is why, she was interested in “nihilistic”, “despairing” and “rebellious” literature until the end of her career. This is testified in the entries of her Diaries, some of them dedicated to Antoni Malczewski’s Maria, a masterpiece of dark Romanticism.
