„Szczegolna manifestacja osobowosci ludzkiej”. Tymona Terleckiego rozumienie literatury
“A SPECIAL MANIFESTATION OF HUMAN PERSONALITY”: TYMON TERLECKI’S UNDERSTANDING OF LITERATURE
Languages of publication
The article presents and analyzes the postwar critical and scholarly activity of the Polish émigré critic Tymon Terlecki, who represented the trend in literary criticism known as personalism. Including journalistic writings, reviews, articles, essays, and books, his rich critical output of the postwar years addressed the issues ranging from the responsibilities of Polish writers in exile, the idea of literature committed to moral and political matters, the poetic works of Kazimierz Wierzynski and Stanislaw Wyspianski, to personalistic literary criticism and Christian existentialism. In literature Terlecki saw “a special manifestation of human personality“ and this idea, pervading almost all of his critical and scholarly writings, constitutes the main subject of analysis in the article.
