In romances such as Judyta, Wirginia, Syloret, Lidia, Potocki developed Biblical and ancient motifs (the latter came from Ethiopian Stories by Heliodor and Metamorphoses by Apuleius, both popular at that time) with their unusual adventures, journeys, intrigues, unexpected turning points.
W romansach, takich jak Judyta, Wirginia, Syloret, Lidia, rozwija³ Potocki motywy ju¿ to biblijne, ju¿ to antyczne (te ostatnie wywodzi³y siê z popularnych wówczas Historii etiopskich Heliodora i Metamorfoz Apulejusza) - z ich niezwyk³ymi przygodami, wêdrówkami, intrygami, nieoczekiwanymi zmianami akcji.
Potocki zapewni³ sobie w³asne, odrêbne miejsce w dziejach literatury dawnych epok - g³ównie dziêki takim dzie³om, jak Transakcyja wojny chocimskiej, Ogród nie plewiony i Moralia, w których objawi³ siê jako znakomity œwiadek swoich czasów, uwa¿ny obserwator i odpowiedzialny moralista.

 Wacław Potocki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wacław Potocki (1621-1696) was a nobleman (szlachcic), moralist, poet, and writer in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
They give a vivid picture of ideas and manners among the szlachta (Polish gentry) towards the end of the Golden Age of the Commonwealth, and of many political and religious conflicts.
Wacław Potocki was born to a minor szlachta family, belonging to the Arian Christian sect of the Polish brethren.

 Antipas Christadelphians: Brethren In Christ, by Alan Eyre
The Potockis were also a renowned family among the Polish Brethren.
Waclaw Potocki (pronounced Vatswav Pototski) was raised in the atmosphere of the Truth, deeply imbibing its spirit.
In the eyes of modern Polish communist scholars, he was "the most remarkable poet and the greatest in the old Polish literature"." His poems vividly describe the traumatic conditions in Europe during the 17th century wars of religion (see POTOCKI ON JAMES 5).

 Sydney Art Theatre   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The age was characterized by ambition to write heroic epics--a preoccupation to be explained perhaps by historical events: wars with Sweden, Russia, and Turkey, internal revolts, and attempts to introduce constitutional reforms.
The Italian poet Torquato Tasso's Gerusalemme liberata (1581; "Jerusalem Liberated"), brilliantly translated by Piotr Kochanowski, inspired attempts at epics on national themes, notably the vigorous Wojna chocimska (written 1670, published 1850; "The War of Chocim") by Waclaw Potocki.
Another epic, the Psalmodia polska (1695; "Polish Psalmody"), by Wespazjan Kochowski, was written under the impact of John III Sobieski's victory over the Turks at Vienna in 1683, at which Kochowski was present.

However Polish society - nobles with their beloved French literature, French language and French everything, patriotic gentry in their impoverished properties, admiring everything what's Polish and creating their own Polish history, made this mighty country inwardly broken.
This duality had it's reflection also in Polish literature - on one hand there were artists whose poetic works were imitating Marini (Jan Andrzej Morsztyn, Daniel Naborowski), on the other - gentry epic of Waclaw Potocki and philosophical contemplation on time and life passing (Mikolaj Sep-Szarzynski).
As it is well-known in Polish literature to change completely after some period of particular type of creating poems, the Baroque with it's gloss transformed into an era of mind, science and reforms.
