Summary/Abstract: The starting point and the main subject of analysis is the changing status of poetry in Poland, viewed in the context of postcolonial theory. The first part of the article analyses the contemporary cultural texts in which the status of poetry has been thematised in the Polish tradition (Paweł Demirski’s art, Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauze’s film Papusza, and the latest novel by Małgorzata Musierowicz). The second part presents deficiencies in the Polish humanities since 1989 in terms of their critical analyses of the restoration of capitalism, and the paradoxes resulting from these weaknesses. In the last part, two “politically incorrect” poems are reinterpreted: Szczepan Kopyto’s “Who killed Jolanta Brzeszka” and the anonymous poem “On the death of Dominik Szymański of Bieżuń”.
