Summary/Abstract: The transition to modernity, which takes place at the end of the nineteenth century, is accompanied by a cultural paradigm shift. It is manifested by the phenomenon of desacralization, against which the modern man takes two attitudes: nihilist and socialist. This moment is captured and illustrated in Władyslaw Sebyła’s poetry, where two ways to participate in the world are shown, the attitude of an engineer and a rat catcher. At the same time the poet observes helplessness of these social structures against questions about the meaning of life. Described in this way, the situation of a cultural crisis is a good moment to proclaim the Good News, which the poet recognizes in the love of another human being.
