"Traktat poetycki" (1957) Czesława Miłosza - biohistoriozoficzna synteza

Jan Miklas-Frankowski


The paper analyzes the original historiosophic synthesis made in A Treatise on Poetry. Historicity is seen as the rescue from both the nihilism of depersonalized historicism such as Marxism or Heglism and unreal, ahistorical contemplation of being. Historicity is a very vague term, which tends to be more precise in Miłosz’s poetry. The poetical historicity is a synthetic balance between historicism and contemplation. Miłosz considered a human being as a part of nature, which is distinguished by possessing awareness. Historicity, for Miłosz, is the memory of human species, community of the dead and the living. It is the continuity of cultural tradition, thanks to which one can find the rules and values resistant to historical progress.
