The article concerns Jaroslaw Marek Rymkiewicz's 'Four Poems for a Dead Goddess' (from the 2006 volume 'Good bye rooks') seen as a cycle and set against the poet's other achievements. Founded on this, the author formulates a thesis that cyclicality is key feature of Rymkiewicz's creativity seen an a discourse displaying the paradox of disparity and repetition. The cyclicality in question consists in the writer's establishing among his texts the various relationships, links them into series, determines the proper idiom for them, and takes up the concept of eternal return. The interpretation of 'Four Poems' effects in formulating a conclusion that Rymkiewicz transforms a myth to display Dionysian vision of the worls and to make poetry affirmation of existing in nothingness. The cycle dedicated to Ariadna performs the destiny of the goddess, it is an act of transgression and benefaction, and at the same time a literary event which induces performative reading.
