'THEY WILL LEND ME HEARING, TIME, SUFFERING, ALL SHE HAS FORSEEN'. MUSIC IN STANISLAW BARANCZAK'S LITERARY WORKS
Languages of publication
Language, in Stanislaw Baranczak's poetry, parallel to adding a metaphysic sphere to the horizon of lyrical penetration, looses its former axiomatic value. With the weakening of the role of a word (seen as a mediator of transcendence), a reflection on music is born in the poetry. In poems 'Kontrapunkt' (Counterpoint), 'Z okna na któryms pietrze ta aria Mozarta' (From a window on some floor this Mozart's aria), 'Tenorzy' (Tenors) or 'Hi-Fi' we can talk about one, comprehensive philosophical project of music. If there is in this poetry a hint that allows for an insight into the metaphysical sphere, it is not a word, but sound. Music in this poetry is perceived as something the root of which is neither in human genius nor in history. It is presented in such a way that it could encompass the whole reality both as existence (determining the identity of the self) and essence.
