Summary/Abstract: This paper attempts to interpret "The Lausanne Lyrics" cycle, together with its lyrical subject, in a multidimensional manner. On the one hand, the article approaches "The Lausanne Lyrics" as a number of contexts by means of which it tries to bring out the lyrical ‘I’ from its incomplete and unauthentic entitativity and to bring into existence fresh and transcendent shapes of the ‘I’. All this involves metamorphosis, decentering, divert perspective as well as non-anthropomorphic forms of lyrical ‘I’. On the other hand, the article analyses "The Lausanne Lyrics" as a form of Lausanne retreat which reveals itself as an existential and spiritual insight into lyrical subject’s soul that the author’s ‘I’ employs in the cycle. What makes this article complete is the description of text forms that reflect various lyrical subjects Mickiewicz applied in "The Lausanne Lyrics" and which demonstrate: linearity, parallelism, and external and internal circularity. They are described as directly and explicitly available forms of the symbolic lyrical ‘I’ of the cycle.
