The article discusses a selected group of metatextual comments made in the 3rd edition of Marcin Bielski’s Kronika published in 1564. The analysis focuses on those referring to the contents of his Chronicle, i.e. the comments informing about what Bielski has already written and where he has written it, what he is about to mention, what and for what reason has been omitted or added by the author when compared to his sources, and what he has only treated superficially. A review of the variety of the linguistic methods used for constructing these metatextual comments allows for disclosing the possible motivations behind the writer’s choices: his wish to direct the reading process and to lead the reader into assuming that the presented content is credible and accurate, combined with an educational and moralistic drive.
