Manichejska podstawa zbliżenia Słowiańszczyzny w twórczości Czesława Miłosza
AbstractThe article is an attempt at explaining Czesław Miłosz’s interest in Bogomilism in relation to his lectures about Dostoevsky at the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California in Berkeley. Miłosz himself gave a partial explanation of this interest, citing existential and psychological reasons: his “Manichean temperament” as a disposition towards a pessimistic point of view. The author of the article, who accepts the thesis that the ethnogenesis of the Slavs is Iranian, claims that the predilection towards Manichaeism present in Miłosz’s works stems also from relicts of Iranian ethnogenesis that rest in the collective unconsciousness of the Slavs.
