Abstract: The aim of the article is to describe the nature of poetic imagination in Andrzej Busza’s work. Ewa Bartos begins by referring to Busza’s “Notes To-wards a Poetic Credo”, a series of aphoristic statements, written in the late sixties, which coincided with the virtual end of the poet’s so- called Polish phase. Among Busza’s tenets are links between life and poetry through the poet’s mythopoeic activity, poetry’s heuristic function, and the therapeutic effect of poetic order on the poet’s inner and outer sense of disquiet and chaos, in part a consequence of his fragmented life and cultural dislocation. Bartos then proceeds to develop the various themes by means of a detailed contextual reading of a number of poems. Thus, the poem “Mikrokosmologia” serves to illustrate the role of art, culture and mythology in the structure of Busza’s poetic world. Science appears in Busza’s world in the form of astronomical and cosmological imagery; while poems such as “Niepewność” (Uncertainty) and “Trzeci Testament” (The Third Testament) interweave religious metaphysical thought and ideas relating to quantum physics. Created from a panoply of im-ages, allusions, and symbols, the world of Andrzej Busza’s poetic imagination seeks to convey the complexness of both the micro- and the macro- cosmos.
