Summary/Abstract: The question whether Mickiewicz used a doggerel verse in "Pan Tadeusz’s" invocation posed by a layperson in the subject of literature immediately implies poet’s incompetency in the art of rhyme. Hence it has become a springboard for a discussion accounting for the nature and function of the rhymes employed in Mickiewicz’s invocation. The allegations of applying a doggerel verse have been set forth by a number of other literary historians against a number of otherliterary works, among others, M. Piwińska – against Maria by A. Malczewski or J. Brzozowski – against Lausanne lyrics by Mickiewicz. A detailed study, taking into consideration a definition of a doggerel verse, proves unambiguously that the answer to the question posed at the beginning of this essay should be a definite ‘No’. Mickiewicz did not descend in his poetic skill yet, aiming at the simplicity of a text as well as the expression of real feelings, he resorted to this unsophisticated type of rhyme.
