Dziennik Heleny Modrzejewskiej 1 I – 16 II 1893
Helena Modrzejewska’s Diary, 1 January–16 February 1893
Languages of publication
The manuscript of the diary, written by Helena Modrzejewska from 1 January to 16 February 1893, is kept in Jan Ignacy Paderewski’s collection at the National Library in Warsaw. Published several times in several variants, both in whole and in fragments (including the excerpts published in the Polish magazines such as Czas, Kierunki, Teatr and in monographs by Marion M. Coleman and Józef Szczublewski), Modrzejewska's diary has become ridden with numerous editorial inaccuracies. The text currently published in Pamiętnik Teatralny is a compilation of the three major editions of the Diary: the original based on the manuscript, including later comments and corrections, the first Polish publication in Czas, 1910, and its edition in English, published in M. M. Coleman’s Fair Rosalind: The American Career of Helena Modjeska (1969).
