In this essay the author proposes a hypothesis: „sin and prayer” constitute one of the most complex metaphors of János Pilinszky's poetry. The study has a double structure: the vertical dimension is given by the examination of the dialogues coming from Pilinszky's poetry and Dostoievstky's, Kafka's and Camus' works, meanwhile the horizontal one places this intertextual analysis in the context of the poems, revealing the basic role of „sin and prayer”.
