Awangarda – niebezpieczenstwo – przygodnosc. Dialektyka nowoczesnosci w poezji Jozefa Czechowicza
AVANT-GARDE – DANGER – CHANCE. DIALECTICS OF MODERNITY IN JOZEF CZECHOWICZ’S POETRY
Languages of publication
The text on dialectics of modernity in Jozef Czechowicz’s poetry is an attempt at reconstructing a model of modern thinking present in his literary creativity. Starting point of the article is the distinction between avant-garde dogmatic model proposed by Tadeusz Peiper, and incohesive, labile structure preferred by Czechowicz. Inconsistencies and lack of clear borders are closer to modernist theories, thus Czechowicz seems to be more consistent and profound in his understanding of the modernity. Moreover, his attitude to such challenges of 20th century thinking as the need for “human self-validation” (Blumenberg) in the world free from metaphysical sanctions, in the world of individual’s functioning within the limits of resources the individual is a part and dominated by technical vision make Czechowicz a consistent and conscious artist and thinker of the Polish avant-garde.
