Summary/Abstract: The Essay constitutes two selected poems, which authors presented during the lyrical performance. These two essays consists of two sketches. The First sketch refers to the most famous Friedrich Nietzsche's masterpieces, well known as Beyond Good and Evil and Cheerful Knowledge. The Second one becomes an inspiration of Odyssey, which has written by the great Greek father of epic and Greek poems. The Poem is a philosophical dispute, which has concerned about two aspects: animal and human. In fact these two poems deal with these two issues and make a description of this phenomenon in anthropological discourse. From the first volume has appeared questions about - what does it mean 'human' in this era? Why the world become such a human place? The Answer consists of philosophical paradigms - where the cheerful enjoying voluntarily has been chosen using by lack of space and homeliness as a corner. The Reader will come across many anthropological aspects (typical in this science), such as the limits of being a human, the limits of moment, when man as a human being becomes an animal. Especially it is noticeable in such a phrase - an animal is an threat youth, which we lost irrecoverably/ Strangely beautiful is a man, who becomes an animal. During the lecture, reader also will find aspect, which shows the reversing limits. In such as situation as well as man hurts, it was the end of the limits: he roars as animal. On the other hand, the reversing limits it is noticeable not only in the condition of human being, but also it is clearly visible in three sketches, which make an essence of crucial division, for example: dog is barking- takes the view, who has forgotten by human speech; cat's meow - legalizes, what lived in the wildness of each poet word; bird sings-liberates spirit, which haunts spirit corridors of philosopher homes. The Distinct conclusion makes a reflection, which perfectly shows quotation - only animal has met a human, because it adopts within an animal, in facts these two animals revere of some God, which make a confidence.
