The article is an attempt to (and a proposal of) a new reading of Krzysztof Kamil Baczynski's poetry. Initially, analyzing the ways of functioning of the romantic tradition and its different faces in the Inter-War period - the epoch which shaped the young Warsaw poet - the author starts a polemic with the legend of a 'second Slowacki'. Granted the existence of reception stereotype, according to which Baczynski's references to the romantic tradition are made mainly to the author of 'King-Ghost', the author maintains that it is advisable to find in his poetry also (and presumably above all) the traces of Mickiewicz. The author thus carries out an analysis and interpretation of two ballads: Baczynski's 'Chase' and Mickiewicz's 'Water Nymph'. The conclusion leads the author to the statement that with great certainty the romantic tradition in Baczynski's poetry develops via dialogue and polemics with the author of 'The Forefathers'.
