The collective volume In the circle of Dark Romanticism. Inspirations, motives, interpretations is a reflection on the literature of Dark Romanticism and ways of how this movement manifests in works from later periods. Therefore, the research material of the authors of the articles is diverse, and hence, the publication is of a cross-sectional character and allows observing the discussed topic across a wider spectrum. What is a merit of the book is undoubtedly the fact that there have been presented methods of analysis that were not previously employed for discussing the works of Dark Romanticism (e.g., Jung analysis in the context of Czarne oczy Black Eyes by Ludwik Sztyrmer) and interpretations of writings that were not previously associated with Dark Romanticism (e.g. the works by Bruno Schulz or Witold Gombrowicz)..
