Summary/Abstract: In her article the author discusses aspects of the functioning of the texts written by the members of the Na Dziko poetry group in the context of the anthology of Silesian poetry. Being an extraordinary phenomenon in the literary lives of the younger generations of Silesians, the formation not only played an important role in the local culture, but also granted an utterly new cultural status to the region (until then mostly perceived as peripheral) and its literary milieu. The texts of the Na Dziko authors were extraordinary because of their artistic qualities, but also because of the common literary principles they voiced. The author undertakes a chronological review of particular anthologies comprised of texts written in Silesia, wherein the pieces by the group members have been included. The consecutive anthologies presenting the poetic accomplishments of the groups’ authors thus symbolically mirror the development of the group itself: from its formative phase, initiated by the anthology Inny świt, through the period of integration and collective activity (W swoją stronę), until the final phase of the formation’s functioning (the anthology Martwe punkty).
