Summary/Abstract: In this article I presented a general assumption of hermeneutics as a theory of literature and a research attitude. I used its various elements in my interpretation of the poem Blues o Wielkim Ptaku of the modern Polish poet, Kazimierz Świegocki. I put the general hypothesis of interpretation and then I verified it by examining the specific elements of the text. I discussed the role of the title and date of creation, the way of speaker’s creation and the lyrical hero, the importance of symbolism and shape of the world presented. I described this poem as referring to issues of cosmogony, ontology, metaphysics and hermeneutics as explaining the order of the universe.
