Abstract

Justine Wynne, the countess Rosenberg-Orsini (1735?-1791) writes the novel The Morlacchi (Les Morlaques) in 1788, inspired by an allegedly true event. Relying on various sources she strove to give the reader a trustworthy story of Morlacch life and their primeval community, still unspoiled by civilisation. This article attempts to answer the question how successful she was in this. The portrait of the Morlacchi that Justine Wynne offered was obviously interesting and appealing to the audience of the time. In the atmosphere of a new European literary fashion of interest for the distant and unknown, the novel The Morlacchi also found their place. Justine Wynne took her place among authors (Macpherson, B. de Saint-Pierre, Herder, Goethe, Mme de Stael, Ch. Nodier and others) who at the turning point of the century, through their interest in the primeval and exotic, introduced a great new literary epoch, the period of Romanticism.
