Czesław Miłosz’s Forest Traces
Languages of publication
The theme of this article has been suggested by Miłosz himself, who published in his Sub-jects to Let (the second part of Road¬ side Dog) the short essay Las [The Forest]. Author plaits the net of associations connected with the forest, which leads to reflection that this apparently obvious and exploited by generations of poets topic can still produce various contexts: geographical, natural, economic, political, cultural and literary ones as well as those of sym-bolic, mythical, historical and biographical character. This last context leads back to Miłosz, as a consequence of the reflection that the forest serves as a kind of symbolical frame for many plots present in his life and creativity. From a biographical and literary point of view, the poet leaves the forest. However, in 1997 (when Road¬ side Dog was published), toward the end of his long life, Miłosz returns to the forest in his poetry. He writes a separate text about it. There is a wide range of forest traces (literal, metaphorical, symbolical) between those two moments. They can be noticed in other books by Miłosz.
