Publishing History of the Diary
Languages of publication
Helena Modrzejewska's diary was 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). The current edition is annotated with regard to its content: the events of the first six weeks of 1893, people described by Modrzejewska and their relationship with the actress, performances and theatrical plays, as well as the publishing history of the diary.
