Ille ego, czyli kreacja „ja" lirycznego w autotematycznych utworach literatury staropolskiej

Maja Jarnuszkiewicz


The present article describes the methods of creating the ‘lyric self ’ and contains interpretations of three poems: Pieśń XXIV ksiąg wtórych and Muza by Jan Kochanowski as well as Pszczoła w bursztynie by Jan Andrzej Morsztyn. The article is composed of three parts. The first part is devoted to exploring the ‘metaphor of a swan’. The second part deals with the interpretation of the ‘metaphor of a cricket’. The final part is focused on the ‘metaphor of a bee’. These three kinds of metaphors are connected with the methods of creating the ‘lyric self ’ in the abovementioned poems. The author wants to present himself as a poet, hence he writes about his talent and skills. To create himself in the poem, the author uses a specific kind of metaphor. Therefore we can talk about the ‘poet-swan’, the ‘poet-cricket’ and the ‘poet-bee’. One of the most important methodological contexts used in the article is the phenomenon of depersonalization, as these three metaphors deal with the construction of the ‘self in the text’, and not of the author himself. Moreover, in that situation, it is the reader who becomes the producer of the meaning of the text.
