Summary/Abstract: The aim of the monographic study is to analyse and interpret Old Polish literary texts containing folkloric themes and motifs, using various research methods. In the introductory part of the book the author presents reflections which have appeared in the last twenty years in Poland and concerned the ways of researching early literature; she also expresses her own thoughts and proposals for reading sixteenth- and seventeenth-century texts on ludic themes. The author implements her suggestions in the interpretative chapter III, which includes, among others, the analysis of literary motif and poetic language, cultural and genological analysis, as well as stylistic and rhetorical analysis. In this chapter, the functions of the ludic text in social communication are also considered. The final conclusions of the work show various functions of ludic motifs, which appeared in literary texts of various themes and purposes (not necessarily related to recreation and fun).
