„First of all, there is, and always will be, our good old mongrel...” Dog motifs in chosen Polish poems from the 20th century

The aim of this paper is to discuss the motif of the dog occurring in the twentieth century Polish poetry. This will entail two research outlooks: 1. the dog as the author of alyrical monologue, per­ceiving the world from an animal’s point of view Monologue of a dog ensnared in history by Szymborska and A dog’s dream by Gałczyński; 2. the dog as the source of interest for the subject of a poem First of all, the dog by Herbert, Dogs by Baczyński, and Stroking a dog by Pawlikowska-Jasnorzew­ska. The paper serves the role of an introductory article, touching upon the most important issues, foundations and literary devices used in depicting the dog motif in the above-mentioned poems.
