Languages of publication
The article is editorial in character – it is a study proceeded with an introduction of 26 letters (mostly postcards) written by Jan Lemański to Stefan, Oktawia and Adaś Żeromski in 1904-1912. Two of these letters concerning Brzozowski’s attack on Miriam and “Chimera” (1094) and the transport of Słowacki’s body to the country (1910) were published before. The rest, depicting the daily life, private relations between Lemański and Żeromski family, and also Oktawia’s role as an intermediary in relations with her husband were not yet published. The whole collection is an interesting example of writers’ correspondence belonging to the Young Poland movement, who wrote not only about public matters of significant importance to the whole Polish culture of the time, but also touched upon personal and family matters.
