Summary/Abstract: "Zima miejska" [Winter in Town] has so far been interpreted mainly in categories of classicistic debut of the romantic poet. The crucial issue in this perspective is Mickiewicz’s attitude to classicism. This article assumes a different approach which is the reinterpretation of the poem in the light of rococo aesthetics. In this way we can abandon the disputable question on the relations between classicism and romanticism (which appears to be insignificant in this particular poem) and emphasise the importance of Mickiewicz’s debut poem.
