Opinie Sienkiewicza-epistolografa o kreacjach kobiecych : z warsztatu artystycznego twórcy
Epistolography is an ancient domain of literature, which has been recently underestimated and nearly forgiven. But considering letters of famous poets or writers, many secrets of their life and creativeness can be discovered; what’s more, many of these documents are simply masterpieces of the literature. Mails of Henryk Sienkiewicz are the endless source of knowledge about his writing and secrets of his writing techniques. One of the most interesting problems taken into account in his letters is a matter of heroines. In many letters to the family or his friends, Sienkiewicz shared his afterthoughts about women’s characters that had been described in his novels or stories. In this way, it is possible nowadays to learn about historical and literary prototypes of heroines and also trace their evolution in time; so it can be estimated, if the writer achieved his original intensions. Also in letters many characteristic attributes of Litwos’ writing like care of realism and psychological motivation of heroines, perfect observational sense and the talent of vital characters creation can be found.
