Proza Katarzyny Tubylewicz
On the prose of Katarzyna Tubylewicz
Languages of publication
The paper entitled ‘The prose of Katarzyna Tubylewicz’ is dedicated to the co-authoress of the anthology of the short stories Jestem mamą – zbiór prawdziwych historii o macierzyństwie, and the authoress of two novels: Własne miejsca (2005) and Rówieśniczki (2014), who some critics would like to see as the reviver of the so-called prose of the centre. The authoress of the article analyses the above-mentioned novels referring to – among other things – a discussion which took place in ‘Gazeta Wyborcza’, and which had been initiated by the famous manifesto entitled ‘Alice Munro would not stand a chance here’. Its authors demand that the literary critics should enter into a dialogue with popular literature and dispose of the misconception that literature written by women is worse. They are also for the revival of the prose of the centre, which – in their opinion – since Tokarczuk’s Prawiek i inne czasy has been missing.
