The article focuses on the characteristic features of the category of transgression
with reference to Zygmunt Krasiński’s worldview – one of the prominent representatives
of Romanticism. The author provides interpretation of the aspects of transcending
borders (found in correspondence) from the ideological, historical and economic
perspectives. The examination of the human – nature relation is to illustrate that
Romanticism was an epoch when individual fate was more a matter of conscious choice
rather than accommodation to set patterns.
