The work tends to classify the stylistic characteristics which can be found in those parts of Serbian folk poetry that deal with the motif of the 'end of time' vision. The 'end of time' is a Biblical topic about the curse and the final judgement that will lead to the destruction of the Earth due to the sins and lawlessness of the people living on it. The 'end of time' vision consists of a longer or a shorter listing of the human lawlessness and the events that foretell the coming of the end. In this world destruction the four basic life symbols will disappear: the sheep and the wheat, the bee and the flower. In order to express the apocalyptic vision of the world disaster, a specific 'scenario' is made; the 'scenario' in which the apocryphal picture of paradise and hell is given. That picture enabled the folk poet to produce specific poetic images with a lot of stylistic figures in a finely sharpened poetry.
