Summary/Abstract: SzóstakThe present article is a polemical voice in a dispute on the author of Gusła [Hexes], who is regarded in the literature on the subject as a religious poet with an incontestable and dogmatic attitude to faith. Liebert is depicted as the artist who searches for such a formula of transcendence which would allow him to reconcile indelible contradictions, that is, thirst for faith in a benevolent creator guarding the world, comprehension and explication of evil or pantheistic view of nature conjoining beauty with the horror of biological determinants. The metaphysical elements of Liebert’s poetry express a yearning for the Absolute that was understood as an ideal of divinity of the universe, whose uniqueness is a proof and a sign of its purposefulness and sense.
