This article presents the issue of inheriting tradition, and of Adam Mickiewicz’s influence on aesthetic and ideological formation of Czesław Miłosz. Poets of the 19th (Mickiewicz) and 20th (Miłosz) century share the idea of the fight for the nation’s freedom, the concern for the “everyman”, and the problem of civic responsibility of an active man of culture. Mickiewicz and Miłosz were both born in the Polish eastern frontier territory, and their formation proceeded under the influence of the local folklore, customs, and the ways of life of the peoples inhabiting the region. Both poets made their “little Fatherland” the main character of their masterpieces, while their extraordinary artistic mastery made their poetry known all over the world.
