Summary/Abstract: Belarusian poetry is defined by the presence of many common worldwide literary archetypes: the House, the Stranger, the Boundaries, the Transformation, the Sacrifice, and others. It is believed that in poetic works of J. Czykwin one archetype often means an emphasis of the other. A combination of several archetypes is clearly manifested in the verse, the primary basis of which serves a daily human life and its surrounding reality. The image of the House in the works of J. Czykwin is conceptually multidimensional, emotionally and spiritually rich, full of ontological content. J. Czykwin’s poetry embodies a unique spiritual experience, national cultural code of the Belarusian people, which occurs through the use of archetypical images and motives inherent to the Belarusian culture.
