Summary/Abstract: As the title requires, our attention in this discourse will be focused on the role of exclamations as a means of expressing emotions in romanticist poetry. Namely, exclamations as unchangeable and dependent words do not serve as names, designations in natural language, but are used in expressing: wonder, grief, pain, sorrow, anger, joy, desire, disgust. They are therefore the most suitable means for expressing emotions in poetic language. Since emotions played an important part in the spiritual creations of romanticism, it is understandable that exclamations as a direct means of expressing emotional states of the man-poet were substantially present in romanticist poetry. This arises from the essential feature of romanticism – that it understands the world extremely subjectively, that it insists on the poetic image of the world, that it replaces reality by imagination, that it acknowledges only its own Self – and finally, that the romanticist poetry is the poetry of sorrow.
