Languages of publication
The article attempts to assess J. Slowacki's attitude towards the various seas he knew on the basis of his letters and poems. The discussion focuses on the following themes: the Black Sea as the poet's native sea, his cultural construction of the Mediterranean, his belief in the healing power of sea bathing, his belief (in the mystical period) in the cleansing and regenerative power of the sea, his search for transcendence in the aquatic infinity, the motifs of poet as a sailor and of life as a sea journey, and of the sea as his spiritual partner.
