Summary/Abstract: The paper examines a poem by Anna Akhmatova Высокие своды костела… as translated by Jerzy Liebert. This translation was not included in any volume released in Liebert’s lifetime. It came out posthumously. The author of the article evokes broad biographical context inscribed in the poem by the Russian poet and also compares Liebert’s rendition of the poem with the one that appeared at the same time by Józef Kramsztyk. The Polish poet’s rendition of the poems seems to be a mere sketch; however, it shows Libert’s fascination with the Russian poetry of the Silver Age – symbolic and going beyond the principles of this trend.
