Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the nature and function of images in Andrzej Busza’s poetry. Budzik is above all interested in the film image, exploring it both as a medium of expression and a source of inspiration. She considers the issue to what extent actual film techniques can be identified in Busza’s poetic texts. She constructs her argument by analyzing several poems, including Powrot Hamleta (Hamlet Returns), Łazarz (Lazarus) and Tajni Agenci (The Secret Agents), in which cinematic techniques are especially evident. One filmmaker, whose method of creating his “world” seems to appeal to Busza is Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Budzik refers to some of Pasolini’s ideas on the “cinema of poetry”. She further argues that the manner in which Busza structures his imagery is also indebted to painting; for example, the work of such artists as Rene Magritte and Edvard Munch.
