Fałszerz Jako Bohater Romantyczny : Przypadek Thomasa Chattertona: [ The forger as a romantic hero : the case of Thomas Chatterton ]
Jan Kochanowski University, Poland. (IMS)

Abstract [en]

The article seeks to present the career of Thomas Chatterton, an eighteenth-century literary forger, whose title to fame lies in an attempt to hoodwink Horace Walpole and to persuade him to publish „medieval poems”, supposedly discovered by Chatterton in the cellars of his parish church. When his hoax was discovered, Chatterton committed suicide. His tragic story made him an inspiration for many Romantic poets. Chatterton's last moments also became the subject of a well-known painting by the Victorian artist Henry Wallis. he article studies Chatterton's „posthumous career” in the context of predominant themes of Romantic poetry, and especially the concept of Romantic hero.
