Metaphor, allusion, euphemism, concept, joke… The tabooisation of human sexuality in selected works of Stanisław Trembecki This treatise discusses sexual metaphors in the poetry of Polish Enlightenment. Such impressions were conveyed in the poems of Stanisław Trembecki, particularly. The analysis of the poems is aimed at defining the poet’s peculiar strategy, the use of clever concepts, euphemisms, witty and ingenious sexual metaphors or sophisticated and subtle definitions of intimate parts of human body, thus enriching intimacy with lyricism. This work attempts to prove that the discussed poems made the then erotic culture attractive and, in a subtle manner, presented stimuli and sexual occurrences not only to entertain a reader, but also to sublimely acquaint with this delicate and extremely important aspect of human life.
Keywords: sublime erotica, Enlightenment poetry, concept, ingenious sexual metaphor, wit, entertainment, making erotic culture attractive
