The aim of the article is to interpret a selection of Bohdan Zadura's poems which can be called "the festival poems" in the light of anthropology of festivals (Jean Duvignaud) and the so-called postsecular thought. Starting with the idea of the art-of-living, the sacred-profane opposition (Mircea Eliade) and Piotr Sommer's essay on the festive and commonplace poetry, author distinguishes four stages of the poetical anthropology of festivals in Zadura's poetry, ranging from complete sacralization in the first "neoclassical" period to complete secularity in his recent books. Currently the former appears as a starting point in the long-term poetical practice of sanctification of the secular and profanation of the sacred. The latter can be captured as an attempt to elaborate a new postsecular mode of spirituality.
