Aastakümneid on proovitud Toomas Nipernaadi olemust lahti muukida küll koolikirjandites, ülikoolide lõputöödes, teadusartiklites, teatrilavadel ning kinolinal.

Kui üldjuhul sellised ränduritest pajatavad teosed on mind rõõmustanud oma kerguse ja lihtsusega, siis Nipernaadi on tõsine ja sünge.
Mees, kes võlub maatüdrukuid oma juttudega, äratades igatsust kodukülast enama järele, ja kes jätab need tüdrukud siis sinnapaik
