Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on the coloristic code in the poetry of A. B. Šimić in relation to the metaphysical and ontological space of colors. This corresponds to a modern linguo-stylistic understanding of rhetoric code. Conceptualization of colors in Complete poems (Sabrane pjesme) and Metamorphoses (Preobraženja) by A. B. Šimić is being observed though the prysm of expressionism in visual arts. In this regard, the paper analyzes frequency of colors and their role in transforming perception into a subconscious sphere. Colors are observed as a structural element that in the poetry of Šimić establishes links between external and internal sensations, while the combination of these two creates a coherent poetic image within a specific rhetoric code.
