Summary/Abstract: The article attempts to present the stages of Wilhelmina Zyndram-Kościałkowska’sapproach to reflection on Miriam’s understanding of aesthetic and artistic principles.A critical diagnosis related to the understanding of art and culture by Zenon Przesmycki ispossible due to observation of Kościałkowska’s holistic reflection on the concept of cultureand modernist literature (including the essence of translation, the meaning of modernistart, drama specificity and the concept of “art for art”) contained in manuscript intimistcollections. The analysis includes diaries, notes, “extracts” from life and people, calendarskept throughout the life of the Grodno writer deposited in the Lithuanian State HistoricalArchives in Vilnius. The method of examination and the nature of the approach are definedby the author of the article as a coffin portrait.
