'MIRACLES OF LOVE' BY JAN ANDRZEJ MORSZTYN. A FEW REMARKS ON POETRY AND PRECISION
Languages of publication
In his article the author presents a polemic with the readings to date of the baroque poet, especially with those which regard this poetry as 'cold, sophistic monologue', seeing in it mostly formal perfection, almost geometrical precision and virtuosity, and above all artificiality, and in which Morsztyn is reproached with emotional dryness, indifference, and coldness. The author formulates a hypothesis that Morsztyn's poetry is presumably not courtly deceptive appearances but an attempt to display the senses and truths hidden under those appearances. He wants to prove that the key to this poetry is 'the varying degree of authoritativeness of the thematized and implied information, as well as the information of different sending planes'. Refinement of the play into which Morsztyn invites us is nowadays often unclear and the paradoxes which we encounter during readings prove irresistible. Did the author of Lute plan such reception of his work?
