Zofia ZARĘBIANKA, Loneliness and the Absence of God: Metaphysics in Tadeusz Różewicz’s Late Poems; An Interpretative Perspective

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

The article presents an attempt at a synthetic interpretation of the evolution, inherent in Tadeusz’s Różewicz’s poems, of the poet’s attitude to metaphysical and religious questions. His early works are expressive of his agnosticism motivated by the trauma of the Second World War, or even the the denial of God’s existence on the grounds of the impossibility to explain why good God allows evil, while the poems written in 1990s reveal a change in Różewicz’s attitude and his tentative recognition of a horizon of metaphysical meanings. The author of the article addresses also the connection between metaphysical issues and Różewicz’s views on the literary creation process and on the indispensability of metaphysical values for the existence of culture.

Keywords: Tadeusz Różewicz, poetry, metaphysics, God, atehism, existentialism, esthetics, culture
