A series of virtual meetings with Polish literature at the Polish Institute in New York
The Polish Institute in New York has prepared a series of virtual meetings with Polish literature "Encounters with Polish Literature". The first episode was devoted to the book "Being Poland. A New History of Polish Literature and Culture since 1918," a history of Polish literature in English that was published in Canada in 2018, edited by Tamara Trojanowska, Joanna Nizynska, and Przemyslaw Czaplinski.
Being Poland... is a cross-sectional presentation of literary and cultural history, and its purpose is to describe the long-term processes occurring in the field. In addition to the classic genres, essay, journal, reportage, and film are also included. The book is divided into four parts: Transitions, Strategies, Transmissions, and Genres and Their Discontents.
Subsequent episodes of the "Encounters with Polish Literature" series will be devoted to Witkacy, Gombrowicz, Szymborska, Różewicz, and Schulz.
