The subject of the article is an interpretation of Juliusz Slowacki's 'Kordian' from the perspective of the mother being evoked but absent from the stage. As based on the analysis of this figure and the relations drawn out in the work between mother and son, the author of the paper wants to show the significance the canonical drama had to 19th century generation of young conspirators. The interpretation of the drama from the perspective of Kordian's mother allows to review the myth of Polish Mother formed in the Polish Romanticism. Slowacki's drama shows that apart from Marian motherhood marked by an agreement on the son's suffering (in the name of the country) there is also motherhood suffused with love for body and life which the mother gave rise to. The other side of the myth - Polish Mother antinomy - immensely affects Slowacki's imagination and thus leads to a meaningful pushing the mother into the shadow of the drama in question.
