“Poetry Is a Sudden Burst of Illumination”. Literary Criticism by Władysław Sebyła

The article deals with the issue of literary criticism by Władysław Sebyła, who was publishing his reviews of contemporary poetry both in literary magazines and on the Polish radio (texts of broadcast reviews have not been considered yet as sources by scholars). The line of thought focuses on the attempt to reconstruct crucial concepts of Sebyła’s understanding of poetry. Among them one has to mention: poetical imagination, creative imagination, emotional side of poetry and its referential ability. Poetry was perceived by Sebyła as a particular way of understanding the man and the world around him.
