Summary/Abstract: Jan Goczoł (born in 1934) as a poet acts the role of literary patron of his family village Rozmierz located near Strzelce Opolskie and its neighbourhood. In the perspective of natural environment of this corner and character of its inhabitants, distanced from different reality of dominating country, Goczoł becomes an emigrant coming to Opole from out there. In the clash of his rusticity – perceived as a natural culture of the region – with the space of the city colonized by industrial and demographical changes that infected Opole region and its villages after World War II, he discovers the essence of being Silesian and evaluates the present state of culture in his home land
