Summary/Abstract: The subject of this article is commentary as a fixed component of an active reading of a literary work during past centuries, inextricably coexisting with the text. It has been discussed in many aspects: 1) there exists a great diversification of form of commentaries in the writings of past centuries; 2) its basic function remains unchanged – a reading guide, an efficient tool of consultation of the learned author with a reader; 3) its aim is to explain the content of the work in order to enable students to interpret it in many aspects; 4) commentary in the form of a lecture contained various explanatory notes; 5) some of the above mentioned forms of expression provided a foundation for the content commentary.Throughout centuries, commentary was undergoing extensive changes, from a lecture offering multifaceted interpretation of a literary work, an independent text similar to the contemporary monographic statement, to a brief, „typical” commentary from an editor.
