abstract

Natural phenomena appear in almost every poem of Ajgi and develop a specific semiotics that evolves over the course of his career. Ajgi very often turns to trees. The trees are signatures of the speaker’s mutually changing relationship with nature and God. The mystical path to the experience of God takes place in transformations that can be traced by the changes in the poetic representation of the trees. As the willow-poems demonstrates, the mystical path to the experience of God in Ajgi’s work leads from the pantheistic and immanent to the Christian and transcendent.
