9780313262227: Dictionary of Polish Literature
View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Polish literature has a long and rich history. But only in recent years, with the decline of communism and censorship, have scholars been able to give full and objective attention to all works and authors in Poland. As the first English-language dictionary of Polish literature, this volume is an enormous contribution. It is the first scholarly work to give extensive attention to literature after the downfall of communism and the first to highlight the work of the newest Polish writers. The dictionary includes alphabetically arranged entries for authors, literary periods, individual literary works, major publications, and organizations related to Polish literature. Each biographical entry provides basic information about the author, an overview of the author's literary output, a detailed discussion of the author's most important and most representative work, a discussion of the author's development and use of themes, and a statement of the author's place in the Polish literary tradition. Entry bibliographies list primary and secondary sources, and a general bibliography of the most important works on Polish literature concludes the book.

Review:

"The opening of Eastern Europe and subsequent end to widespread suppression of information had much to do with the appearance of this welcome work, the first English-language lexicon of Polish literature. Aided by scholars in Poland, Czerwinski has produced a compendium aimed at researcher and layperson alike. Articles are informative and thorough, listing details of their subjects' lives, works, and important literary influences. Greatly facilitates access for English-speaking readers. Strongly recommended for academic libraries."-ARBA 95

"This reviewer is grateful to Czerwinski for making Polish literature available to the American reader. This important pioneering venture is highly recommended to college and university libraries. Upper-division undergraduate and above."-Choice
