Summary/Abstract: In an interpretative essay devoted to a poem by Jerzy Liebert Colas Breugnon, the author of the article searches for the signs of affirmation, which – as it seems – should permeate into the poem by means of intertextual dialogue. Such a dialogue is held with a famous novel by Romain Rolland, considered as a manifesto of life optimism. The relation that seems to have conjoined these two texts is less obvious than one could think. A figure of Colas Breugnon served Liebert not only to demonstrate the eulogy of life in all its positive aspects but also to point to the hardships in one’s faith in God that required from man the acceptance of also those experiences that are beyond the delights of life.
