Czesław Miłosz’s and Tadeusz Różewicz’s poetic dialogues

Anna Pytlewska

Abstract

There are no better known names and more poetically individual authors in Polish poetry of the 20th century than Czesław Miłosz and Tadeusz Różewicz. Although one was born one decade later than the other they created extremely different types of poetry, which have a significant influence not only on Polish post-war poetry but also international literature. The main scope of my PhD thesis is to study all relations between their writings. During 70 years they provided a dialogue which consists of obvious dedications, allusions, quotes and less evident signs such as specific metaphors and forms. They all have become a secret code that unveiled a lot of correspondences but also mutual antagonisms. All things considered the research material is so rich and unhomogenous that it was not possible to find one methodological key to analyse the texts. Therefore when I say ‘the dialogue’ I do not mean only simple intertextuality. I also resigned from the legacy of the dialogue philosophy. Seeking the dialogue in the poets’ works I use its simplest meaning, namely an existential act of speaking and understanding. The work contents ten chapters: 1st To find and lose without a proem, 2nd Greeting, 3rd To rewrite Miłosz. The try of apocrific lecture of ‘Anxiety’ by Tadeusz Różewicz, 4th Anatomy of watching, 5th Polixena’s pants – Nature’s and Culture’s dispute about corporelness, 6th Viciousness, wrongness, poorness, badness and all unthinkable evil’s forms that are yet to come, 7th On retirement, 8th Weak poems. Several remarks on the reading of the Elderly Masters, 9th Orpheus and the mole, 10th Not-conlusiosn on the end.
