Joanna Szydłowska


This article attempts to trace and characterize Maria Dąbrowska’s interest in the so-called Western Territories, ie. the eastern provinces of the German Reich handed over to Poland in 1945 as part of the post-war settlement. The analysis, based on the text of her Diaries, tries to establish the relative size and importance of her references to the WT, identify their themes and their contemporary social, political and cultural contexts. The article also examines Dąbrowska’s more or less explicit judgments of the policies of Poland’s postwar communist government with regard to the Western Territories

Katarzyna Szewczyk-Haake


This article presents a postcolonial interpretation of Olwid’s (Witold Hulewicz’s) book of poems Flame in Hand (Płomień w garści, 1921). His poetic ‘fragments’ describing the experience of the World War are remarkably similar to the poetry of German expressionism. Whereas previous critics treated this similarity as a proof of the derivative, unoriginal nature of the Poznań expressionism, this article claims that Olwid’s was a deliberate attempt to start a rapprochement between the Polish and the German culture. After decades of colonial dependence the breakthrough of 1918 the two cultures had a chance to resume a dialogue of equals with the expressionist poetics as a new footing. Hulewicz tones down the difference between the hegemon and the victim in the spirit of the expressionistic search for common humanity. To that end he also develops a new interpretation of the Polish Romantic tradition. His endeavours mark him out as a precursor of postcolonial criticism, and more specifically that type of postcolonialism which uses the emancipatory strategy as a means to the creation of a ‘truly free man’. That high goal is pursued not because of a commitment to cosmopolitanism but in the name of absolute human values.
