Milosz's poetry is commonly perceived as the voice of a moral authority and a moralist. What was the source of his ethical knowledge which enabled him to play this double role - both declarative, communicated in the texts, as well as practical, which allowed him to become a teacher and an example to follow? The poet explained he did not advocate any special moral code, understood as a collection of instructions, nor was he able to specify his rules of conduct. Following Julia Kristeva's idea, the author is trying to show that Milosz's moralizing is an integral aspect of his poetics; not a philosophical content in a decorative form, but a practical aim of the form itself.
