Abstract: In the article attention is mainly focused on the perception of history in Platelis’ works and the images, motives and philosophical arguments prevailing in them. The philosophical thought of Jean Baudrillardabout and the transformation of history in the postmodern epoch are taken as a theoretical presumption of the article. The mechanism of civilization destroying history, myth and identity of historical individuality is reflected in the majority of Platelis’ poems. The history in his works is perceived through two groups of images: a growing seed and natural cycle in one group and logically arranged straight lines in the other. The cyclical mechanism of history embodies the growth of and the development of culture, myth and art. According to Platelis, the nature of seed involves anthological and physical fate of history and this fate in the history of the world is perceived by art which gives an important metaphysical perspective for human existence. But in the world of a modern person and in the world of art there is a gap between historical experience and its ontological resources. In the presence of historical illusion and simulation we can see the most important problem of history revealed in Platelis’ poetry. Comprehended historical movements and natural rhythm of the end of the 20th century turns into the boredom of a disclosed. Mystery copies the world according to the same matrix. This is witnessed by the dominance of the fabula and ironical relationship of the author with the repeated matrix of the plot. In the works of Platelis and other modern poets a mysterious historical event is transformed into the fabula and stylistic device is related to the feeling of the worn-out code of matrix and dissipated information and gets quite a new meaning in literature. In Platelis poetry this meaning can be read directly: a typical hero of Platelis poetry, Odisey, who inherited all the suffering, blame and fate of antique, has lost the sense of history and fate in the environment of modern civilization. The experience of the impact make a necessity to create an individual metaphysical perspective.
