The article is an interpretation of Poręcz, a poem by S. Barańczak. Barańczak
was classified by A. van Nieukerken as a representative of a metaphysical
current of the ironic conceptism type, whereas the poem was
considered by the author as a realization of such a creative attitude. What
is analysed is the concept based on linguistic ambiguity determining two
aspects of man’s condition. The first of them is connected to a sensual experience
and refers to phylosophical concepts by I. Kant. The other relates to
a perspective o f transcendence, and through intertextual reference to Lousanna
lyrics by Mickiewicz, quotes a Romantic theory of cognition by
means of water reflection described in works by M. Maciejewski and I. Opacki.
Both aspects, as the author shows, are reflected in the genre form of villanelli,
revealing metaphysical issues in the final part of the poem.
