Jasieński wrote his early poetry under the influence of Severyanin and Mayakovsky. Jasieński's first book of poetry, +But w butonierce= (+A Boot in a Buttonhole=), witnesses the impact of Severyanin's +Gromokipiashchii kubok= (+Goblet Seething with Thunder=). Besides borrowing some of the motifs and images, the Polish poet imitates Severyanin's formal technique-his profound use of Gallicisms, neologisms, and metric elegance. The influence of Mayakovskyis most apparent in Jasieński's long poem +Pieśń o głodzie= (+A Song of Hunger=), which is a paraphrase of +Oblako v shtanakh= (+A Cloud in Trousers=). A textual analysis of both poems reveals the similarity of the systems of motifs, stylistic devices, and ideological connotations.
