M. Piechota, J. Ryba (red.), "Od oświecenia ku romantyzmowi i dalej... : autorzy, dzieła, czytelnicy. Cz. 4" (S. 101-110). Katowice : Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Śląskiego
The aim of the text is a comparative analysis of the last scenes of two Romantic
works: Krasiński’s drama entitled Irydion and Meyerbeer’s opera with Scribe and Delavigne’s
libretto Robert the Devil. Revealed similarities are to serve not only the support
of the hypothesis of intentional references to a great Romantic opera in a drama
by a Polish author as they become above all a starting point for considerations on the
basic outlines of a Romantic worldview.
