Milosz's 'Traktat moralny' (The Moral Treatise), as a manifestation of the poet's proactive attitude toward the reality, cannot be made subject to rigours of a philological analysis. This Treatise is Milosz's most daring political work. The authoress' argument is that if the 'political-commentary' aspect of this poem is neglected, the piece gets deprived of its poetic vein. Hence, a course of reading should be sought for which would enable confrontation of various orders of meaning.
