Summary/Abstract: The main subject of the following article is an analysis of a few important poems by the renowned contemporary Polish poets: Czesław Miłosz’s „My faithful speech” („Moja wierna mowo”) and „Oeconomia divina”, Adam Zagajewski’s „The Truth” („Prawda”), and Zbigniew Herbert’s „To Mark Aurelius” („Do Marka Aurelego”). The author of the article focuses on the axiological aspects of the above mentioned texts and concludes that the Polish poets living in the 1970s and 1980s have contributed to a discussion on the new shape of the post-communist Polish society, which, in their view, should be founded on such important ethical values, as truth, beauty, peace, and freedom.
