Summary/Abstract: This literary sketch is devoted to Czesław Miłosz’s translations of Anglo-American poetry,which the poet incorporated into Nieobjęta ziemia [Unattainable Earth] — one of silvic poems in his literary oeuvre. Against the background of the whole collection, two quoted here translations of poetry by David Henry Lawrence and Walt Whitman mark themselves as especially interesting. The article is an attempt to decipher the author of Trzy zimy [Three Winters’] intention as well as to answer the question of what determined the choice of these particular poems from amongst the realm of Anglo-American lyrical poetry. The authoress tries to discern whether, and if yes, in what sense, Miłosz identifies with Whitman’s and Lawrence’s ruminations or even certain philosophy that can be construed based on their poems.
