The article includs an interpretation of „Anhelli”, the poem by Juliusz Słowacki and his subsequent lyric
that begins with the words: „I wstał Anhelli… z grobu… za nim wszystkie duchy…”. The analysis of
both works is focused on the issues of death (physical and mental /emotional), sadness, lack of hope,
revival and resurrection. The aim of this article is to present images of the suffering and dying of the
poem’s characters and the degree of their initiation into the death. An important point of the poem’s
interpretation is a description of the place of action — Siberia, which is called the Land of Graves. Very
important is also the analysis of the end of the poem and its comparison with the subsequent lyric, and
the relation of the second work with the philosophy of the last period of Juliusz Słowacki’s output.
