Summary/Abstract: The material for this dissertation was selected from several Enlightenment editions of poetry and its translations. The annotations that were taken into account were selected exlusively from the volumes of poetry authored or translated by that period’s leading men of letters, whose assumingly mature creative awareness translated to creative decisions that were made. This article distinguishes several groups of annotations concerning the broadly understood poets’ „creative technique” and specifies their functions. A close analysis of the annotations regarding specific decisions and creative inspirations in the case of original poems and their translations, as well as of the poetry itself, allowed the author to distinguish another writer (beside Franciszek Dionizy Kniaźnin), who as a poet, translator, and editor exhibited much more activity in this regard than other men of letters of that time.
