## Ecopoetics (im)possible. Nature in women's poetry after 1989

### Daria Lekowska

#### Abstract

The doctoral dissertation was dedicated to the issues of nature emerging from Polish poetry written by women after 1989, analyzed from an ecocritical perspective. The main challenge of the work was to study the relations between the writing subject, the poem and non-human nature, as well as the linguistic strategies of establishing these relations. The aporetic axis of the research reflection was determined, on the one hand, by the reflection on poetic language, understood as a structure capable of performing ecological work, and, on the other hand, by the question about the (im)possibility of developing an universal model of causal, ecological narration. The (eco)poetic projects that were analyzed in the first place, refer to the question of the sources, necessarily breaking the caesura of 1989. Therefrom the presence of Urszula Kozioł, Krystyna Miłobędzka and Wisława Szymborska. Next, taking into consideration the cross-sectional and generational nature that emerged from the selected poetic material, as well as the diversity present in individual projects, the poetry of Marzanna Bogumiła Kielar, Elżbieta Michalska, Julia Fiedorczuk, Urszula Zajączkowska were interpreted, as well as, poetic undertakings of the youngest poets, born in the 1980s and 1990s. This insight into the newest poetry, made it possible to look for an answer to the question of how literature reacts to contemporary problems, tendencies and worldview transformations, as well as their potential impact on the shape of nature co-created in a poem.
