„Kto chce malować świat w barwnej postaci”? Malarstwo w Świecie Czesława Miłosza

Michał Mrugalski

“WHO WANTS TO PAINT THE WORLD IN COLOUR”? PAINTING IN THE WORLD BY CZESŁAW MIŁOSZ

Martin Heidegger is commonly considered related to Czesław Miłosz. The author draws conclusions from this assumption. Reading The World referring to Heidegger’s Source of a Piece of Art by Heidegger, he exposes an ironic tension between the poems on faith, hope and love on the one hand and the poems on pieces of art on the other. They both are contradictory. Lyrical reflections deny the philosopher’s thought, while ekfrases come close to Heidegger’s Source... — a major 20th-century work studying truth-art relations. Yet, what brings Miłosz’s poetry close to Heidegger’s philosophy is the conflict within the poem.
