Adam Mickiewicz sometimes tried to resolve the opposition between eternity and time by eliminating one of them. He was arguing then that the time was apparent and had no ontological ground, and its only source was a volatile world of human experience. More often however, he tried to make both sides of the oppositions compatible. He treated then time as a necessary link between two poles of eternity. This way, historical vicissitudes have been written into history of the Absolute as a valid step on Its way to the complete satisfaction. Quite another problem is that this idea of 'great compatibility' has remained only an extended suggestion. This is even more obvious considering that the poet at times thought that neither the human nature, nor the Creator's nature, is for themselves - both for the human being and God - completely transparent.
