Summary/Abstract: The article is devoted to the latest volume of poetry published by a Polish poet living in Vancouver; Canada. The author analyzes the poems from a broadly understood culturally-oriented perspective. She notes the variety of different narrative threads in her poetry; traces the poetic techniques and points to the mythological inspirations; intertextual and philosophical allusions; discusses the metapoetic elements and emigration dilemmas. The article argues that it is possible to see in the poetry of Grażyna Zambrzycka the continued amazement at the world and the extolment of the entirety of its existence—both the suffering and the joy; as well as the pursuit of artistic activities.
