Wojciech Wencel; classicism; radition; poetic imagination
Śląskie Studia Polonistyczne, Nr 2 (2015), s. 285-303
The article attempts to read Wojciech Wencel’s poem Imago mundi,
focusing mainly on the process of opening up the Polish literary tradition by the poet
(both the classic genre forms and stylization, direct references to the particular authors
or symbols common in the Polish literature). Moreover, the author examines the poet’s
“forces of imagination,” his characteristic way of depiction, small “obsessions” and the
otherness of the analysed poem.
