Rhetorical composition of the poem Zaklęcie by Czesław Miłosz

The author demonstrates that Czesław Miłosz’s poem Zaklęcie from volume Miasto bez imienia 1969 possesses rhetorical arrangement, especially such a one which is characteristic of a treatise, lecture, dissertation or essay. The author distinguishes two main parts of the poem, and each of them is composed of a thesis and an argumentation or in logic terminology: problem and evidence. This schema derives from Aristotle, who claimed that speech oratio should contain two essential parts: statement and proof.
