Abstract

The paper questions the philosophy of Amir Brka’s poetry, but not with the aim of presenting the truth as philosophy does, but to point out the impossibility of expressing it – because the truth is not to be known and described but comprehended. Accordingly, this poetry rests on what is outside the world, thus seeking to realize awareness of the misfortune as well as the evil that accompany humanity. Brka’s constant questioning of the possibilities of poetry brings an answer to silence and  emptiness, so it is not surprising that irony is central. Being intellectual in its essence, this poetry tries to conquer all the nothingness and loneliness, with which the poet himself deals with.
