Languages of publication
The source material is taken from the Central Office of the Press, Publications and Events’ Control documents maintained in the Archives of Modern Records in Warsaw. It contains a few-page long article – a synthetic description of Kazimiera Iłłakowiczówna’s biography and her creative path – published in the July issue of the inner censorship circular from 1955, in which the new rules on how to control the oeuvre which previously was banned from printing are explained. The introduction is a description of how censorship dealt with the works of Iłłakowiczówna. The author refers to other documents from the Archives of Modern Records, the press from the epoch, the collections published in the 40s and 50s and compares them to the source materials, what allows her to come to several conclusions. She confirms the existence of the volume of collected works which was submitted for publication at Wydawnictwo Zachodnie in the summer of 1948. She also discovers that the ban on printing was not imposed on several poems published in the Christian press and on interviews in the press. The author also proves that the suspension on the ban for publication comes in 1954 and is one of the first signs of thaw in the Central Office of the Press, Publications and Events’ Control.
