Summary/Abstract: The author presents Zygmunt Krukowski (1951-2013), a local and little known poet from Nowa Ruda in Poland’s Lower Silesia. He analyzes Krukowski’s poems as rooted in a concrete local area and describes various modes by means of which the poet creates the regional space; the latter is consequently characterized as a literary construct. He points out that some of the poems may be interpreted in the context of the Heraclitean philosophical tradition. According to the critic, it is essential to preserve the memory of important (if neglected) representatives of regional culture and literature.
