Romantic Nationalism in Eastern Europe

This chapter defines the dominant idioms of Polishness for every specific configuration of an imagined community, which allows us to draw an analytical model of the Polish national imagination of the 1830s–1840s. By analyzing the language intellectuals used when speaking about Polishness, that is, the variety of cultural and political idioms, it shows how intellectuals imagined and represented Polish nationality, how inclusive it was, and whether it depended on different ideological stances.

Keywords:   Polish national identity, nationalism, Polishness, imagined community, political idioms, cultural idioms
