Where Is the Forest? On Poetic Imagination in Feliks Netz’s Concord

Summary/Abstract: Feliks Netz betrays a particular sensitivity towards the nature. He describes the complicated relationship between nature and man; who on the one hand supports it – creating its “constructs” (forests; sanctuaries; or parks) through living in and growing alongside nature – but on the other hand contributes to its degradation. The latter seems to be more frequent than the former: nature is being destroyed by the passage of time and the superiority of one law of nature over the other from the one side; and by the civilization from the other side. The article focuses on the metaphor of the forest in the poems included in the volume of Feliks Netz’s poetry entitled Concord. The green space described by the poet – as Barbara Zwolińska says – “at the brink of destruction and under the threat of fire or felling; feels reminiscent of a house falling apart.” The poet sees both of those spaces in a very similar manner.
