The article deals with the issue of contamination of romanticism and ancient motives in 'The Legion' by Stanislaw Wyspianski. In the drama Mickiewicz's romantic myth appears against the background of the Ancient Rome, associating the ancient use of metaphors with romantic visionary style. Particularly exposed theatrical character of space suits the creation of the main character, apparently stylized for the Mickiewiczian hero. The hero puts on masks of both Christ and Brutus, thus confirming the tragic situation of a man bound in history and social obligations. Wyspianski's Rome is the synthesis of the theatre of the world. Exaggerated mystification in 'The Legion' - an apparent game - is a desperate attempt to communicate between the modernist sender and the recipient.
