Rhetorical composition of the poem Zaklęcie by Czesław Miłosz

The author demonstrates that Czesław Miłosz’s poem Zaklęcie from volume Miasto bez imienia (1969) possesses rhetorical arrangement, especially such a one which is characteristic of a treatise, lecture, dissertation or essay. The author distinguishes two main parts of the poem, and each of them is composed of a thesis and an argumentation (or in logic terminology: problem and evidence). This schema derives from Aristotle, who claimed that speech (oratio) should contain two essential parts: statement and proof.
