Summary/Abstract: The author of the book is interested in state of „insatiability” – in the escape from creative stability, the jail of scheme, in the desire of being constantly „before”, never in the rank annihilating the individuality. In higher dimension such state means the search for the aesthetic and the ethical solution in sparring with the material world of our contemporaneity, laying paths in the hidden passageways of the imagination and creation of own, ready to ovecrome, forms of expression. Selected writers (Tytus Czyżewski, Tadeusz Peiper, Mila Elin, Stanisław Grędziński, Lech Piwowar, Tadeusz Gajcy, Tymoteusz Karpowicz, Krystyna Miłobędzka, Andrzej Falkiewicz, Józef Bujnowski) wanted to be the artists of the new epoch, who undertake, „on their own account” of course, the eternal and universal problems: asking about God, existence, limits of perception, creating surreal transcodes or generating equivalents, searching epiphanous tracks, sometimes selecting paths of ideological involvement, confronting the glimmer and uncertainty of the symbolic presence. Nowocześni i nowoczesne… is a story about imagination, choices not only aesthetic in nature, the necessity of the inception of a poem, that pulls words into a centrifuge of augmented senses, meanings, semantic battles. With confidence in the value of the experiment.
