Summary/Abstract: The works of Władysław Sebyła are closely connected with their cultural contexts,and they have remained an important reference point for the subsequent generationsof poets. Imageries, motifs and stances exemplified in Sebyła’s poems reappear later inthe works of many other poets, including Andrzej Bursa. Regardless whether the connectionsbetween Bursa and Sebyła are doppelganger themes or conscious references,they testify to the continuity of the historical and literary process as well as the connection between the catastrophic tendencies of the second half of the interwar periodand turpism, accompanied by the critique of reality, in the times of the Polish People’sRepublic. The comparative analysis of Władysław Sebyła’s Zmierzch księżyca (Dawn ofthe Moon) and Andrzej Bursa’s Zgaśnij księżycu (Fade, Moon) serves as an illustrationof the aforementioned connections.
