The article is an attempt to interprete Czeslaw Milosz's rich literary creativity in the context of romantic tradition, especially Adam Mickiewicz's literary heritage. The methodological tool which allows to analyse Milosz's ambivalent attitude to Mickiewicz is Harold Bloom's theory of poetry which relies on the struggle of a 'born late' poet against powerful precursor poets. Discussing 'agon ephebe' in one of his most famous book 'The Anxiety of Influence', Bloom presents six revisional stages in which a 'strong poet' tries to free himself from the influence of the 'Father-poet' and to use him to sanction his own autonomy and original position. Numerous biographical iterations and literary similarities between the two poets in question started a turmulous relationship resulting in pathetic polemics which exemplifies Bloom's theory.
