Abstract: The studies on works and biography of Mickiewicz I have been conducting for almost 30 years prove that a poet, irrespective of the fact if it was formulating Filomat legislation acts, preparation for classes in school or at the university, writing a historical or poetical work, organising legion learning Turkish (the eleventh foreign language) when it turned out that its knowledge could be extremely useful in military actions against Russia, he always showed young enthusiasm if only a patriotic context, hope for gaining independence by Poland the generation of Romanticism dreamt of, were on the horizon. Mickiewicz always took care more of others than himself and family, even in the case of the correction of the book of Poezje by Stefan Garczyński, his friend, and turned out to be more scrupulous and creative than during his own correction of Pan Tadeusz. Because previous works on Mickiewicz, successfuly cumulated in 2000, were characterised by definitely monographic ambitions on the one hand, and popularising ones on the other, today, after a decade, I intend to present a reader more interested in „the greatest Polish poet” a selection of my works written at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, derived from various inspirations and grouped in 5 parts: 1) Filomat fulfillment and disappointment; 2) Motives, inspirations, phenomena; 3) Additions to ideas, relations, silence – that is why the titles of three chapters in this part involve the phrase „still about…”; 4) On editorial and, more specific, philological problems; 5) Polyglotism of the poet. Most often, these are the results of Poland wide and international academic sessions in which I took part (in Cieszyn, Gdańsk, Katowice, Ostrava, Ustroń and Vilnius), and papers presented between 1994 and 2008. In few places I decided on a rather subjective tone and placed a short note on the circumstances of the origin of the idea, an intriguingly designed title of the conference, sent a series of handbooks, and prepared an academic session on the occasion of a poetic competition for Icarus’ Wing, I was lucky to receive a special copy of Christian ethics by Vincent Houdry (Venice 1750) with a mysterious inspiration. Revealing the origin of the idea sometimes tells more not only about the source, but also a final result of academic investigations of the historian of literature, especially the literature from older times. Where the beginning part of the book title „A Word is a whole human being”. Studies and sketches about Mickiewicz comes from will be explained in chapter 10 about poet’s silence. Although I use the wery statement in a slightly different way than its author assumed, „work” is understood here in a broader sense, as a synonym of activity, not only a literary one, but also as a set of political and socio-cultural enterprises.
