His major books are: Narodziny powieści poetyckiej w Polsce (Wrocław 1970), Poetyka – Gatunek – Obraz. W kręgu poezji romantycznej (Wrocław 1977), „Ażeby ciało powróciło w słowo”. Próba kerygmatycznej interpretacji literatury (Lublin 1991).

“Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Mt 5:44).

Usually, the lectures were conducted in the form of conversation classes. The plural form of the indicated didactic activity can be explained in at least three ways.
