The article deals with the subject of the Tatra landscape in Kazimiera Alberti’s debut poems published in the yearbook „Wierchy” (1926) and in the volume „Avalanche revolt” (Bunt lawin) (1927). The author, referring to the earlier achievements of the Tatra literature, especially the Young Poland period, presents the most important motifs concerning the mountains in the Polish poet’s work – symbolism of nature, fascination with highlander culture, embedding the action of works in Tatra space. All this adds up to a special “tatro(geo)graphy”, which is an underspecified, poetic map of the Tatra Mountains and their surroundings.
