Summary/Abstract: The interpretation, according to which Transakcyja... by Anna Stanisławska is an object of male ignorance, is debatable in two ways: first, in my opinion, there is no poetic artistry in this poem whatsoever. Also, I would like to mention that we should differentiate between two levels of competence in old-Polish literature: a didactic one and a research-analytic one. It is utterly unbelievable that academic lists of readings could pass in silence such authors as Stanisław Orzechowski, Maciej Kazimierz Sarbiewski, Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski or Wespazjan Kochowski. Both “The Canon” and “the canon” in their genesis belong to the ancient times and depend on the process of shaping the corpus of texts called the Holly Scripture and therefore appear to be culturally anachronic.
