Summary/Abstract: The subject of the article is the phenomenon of the Silesian young poets anthologies published after 1989: Inny świt by Marian Kisiel, W swoją stronę by Paweł Majerski and Martwe punkty by Dariusz Pawelec. The poetry collections in question present a different kind of poetry created in Silesia – different meaning, on the one hand departing from manifesting regionalisms in literary works, dissenting from regarding being‑Silesian only in relation to poetic schemes, while on the other still recording this very quality, subconsciously registering it. The authors of the anthologies have been looking for a common sensitivity amongst the individualities of all writers whose works have been collected. Yet, what the published collections were to show above all, was that there is something happening in Silesian poetry, that it is not stuck in a rut, quite to the contrary: it is changing, moving forward, has its storms and revolutions, and that with each new author comes a new poetics.
