Abstract [en]

The task of this paper is to examine and compare the use of Christmas as a theme in the poetry of Czesław Miłosz, and the Swedish poet Hjalmar Gullberg. Both of them thematize Christmas at about the same time and use it in a somewhat new poetic function. Neither of them had a firm Christian belief and they use the theme in a number of common ways: to mark a poetical simplicity, to connect their poetry to a common European cultural tradition, to express the agonies of the Second World War and, as claimed, to invoke belief when no simple belief is possible for modern man.
