Summary/Abstract: The author presented a number of Yehuda ha-Levi’s poems accompanied by their literary translation into Polish. Based on selected lyrical poems she presented ha-Levi’s artistic and philosophical attitude, and especially the changes it underwent during the author’s long life. The author paid special attention to the mystical themes in the works. The inimitable manner of portraying the intimate bond with the Absolute, the dreams, the recollections of Israel’s history, and the trip to Jerusalem as the climax, became a source of inspiration for generations of mystics. In order to encourage fuller and more comprehensive understanding of the phenomenon which Yehuda ha-Levi’s poetry represented, the author also included numerous commentaries serving as references to the author’s biography and the historical, cultural and linguistic background of his times.
