Four Decades of Polish Essays contains the works of the greatest Polish writers of this century. The essay was the form most particularly adapted to the Polish sensitivity, the form in which the most inventive and original power of the Polish literary genius expressed itself. No previous anthology has brought together this rich array of literary accomplishments on topics from literature, art, and drama to politics and science fiction. Four Decades of Polish Essays makes possible for the first time the systematic study of some of the more fascinating prose literature of the twentieth century.
