    • Abstract:
      By analysing an example of self-published (some would call it amateur) poetry, this article attempts to position the concept of joy in the conceptual apparatus of literary criticism. In the polemical debate, it stands on the side of materialism, idiotism and silliness as opposed to certain unreflected criteria – idealism, intellectualism, seriousness – that define which works of poetry are considered artworks worthy of discussion even before they have actually been critically discussed. Being polemic, the article does not develop joy as a fully-fledged tool of literary criticism, but tries to serve as an introduction to the possibility of including the usually overlooked elements of poetic language into the field of artistic work and expression.
