Summary/Abstract: The author, starting with the already existing research findings regarding Władysław Sebyła’s poetry – concerning the Romantic tradition present in his works – attempts to primarily showcase his links with the late Lausanne poetry of Adam Mickiewicz.Focusing on a poem by Sebyła entitled Poeta (The Poet) – even though the article abounds in references to other texts – the author postulates that the creative dialogue between Sebyła and Mickiewicz was not restricted to the questions of poetic imagery. An analysis of aquatic motifs in Sebyła’s poetry, which draw abundantly from the Romantic poetics, serves to fully showcase his artistic originality. As the author of the article emphasizes, Sebyła’s poems, due to their intertextual nature which heavily references the Romantic tradition, became texts of a universal character, transcending their “current limitations” (the issue of socialization of poetry), attempting a diagnosis of the existential human condition soon before the greatest tragedy of the 20th century.
