Abstract:

Hymnic genre awareness in Czesław Miłosz’s poetry is included into metadiscursive statements. Poetic self-commentary often leads to encapsulating the entire work in the hymnic genre. The hymn becomes an identification of the author`s poetic and develops into a literary type. Is there a nonthematized hymn in this poetry and, if so, in what way ca nit exist? From his debut until Last poems Miłosz is observed to carry out a long-lasting process of codification of the qualities of hymnic expression which is being accomplished in a constant dialogue with the forms already attested. Referring to the analysis of metatextual statements found in Miłosz’s poetic texts, the article concludes that the use of the term in question goes beyond its narrow literary genetics meaning. The presensce of the hymnic code is seen as one of the elements which unites Miłosz’s literary output. Miłosz’s notion of hymn crosses the limits of his poetics. Hymnicity, then, stems from experiencing the sacred but is primarily viewed as an existential project.
