Summary/Abstract: This study, the blending of postwar Polish writer W. Szymborska (1923–2012) poetry with Carlos Bousoño’s verses (1923–2015), contemporary first generation of postwar poets in Spain, shows common trends amongst both: life projected through the means of poetry and the manifestation of life happenings through artistic expressive modes. Along with the creation of the self, to literary fiction, they choose drawing on mythology, painting, the Bible, literature itself… as demonstrations of cultural universality.
