Summary/Abstract: In his entire poetic career, only once did Władysław Sebyła reach for the charactersof Don Quixote and Hamlet. These two literary characters hold a conversation with each other in Sebyła’s Dialog w ciemności (A Dialogue in the Dark). In their conversation, they engage in a philosophical dialogue concerning the role of the word in the creation of a linguistic image of the world, as well as its influence on the extralingual reality. Thus, the following article constitutes an attempt at interpreting a literary credo of the poet from the lines of the poem, as well as an attempt at highlighting the importance of imagination in the creation of poetry and extralingual reality.
