„Kilogramowa łza” i „nastrojowa kanapa”. Emocje w przestrzeni komicznej (Najmniejszego Teatru Świata)
“A One-kilo Tear” and “a Mood Sofa”: Emotions in the Comic Space (of The Smallest Theater in the World)
Languages of publication
This article focuses on some typically Polish literary contexts fundamental for the intertextual humour of Zielona Gęś (The Green Goose, also known as The Smallest Theater in the World) by K.I. Gałczyński, a writer who helped create a new culture of laughter in post-war Poland. Gałczyński plays with the “sentimental romanticism” which perpetuated in native readers’ imaginations certain characteristic, emotionally marked spatial images, such as a landscape with a nightingale and the moon, as well as related standards of feeling nowadays regarded as emotional kitsch, seen in, for instance, banal lyricism represented by motifs of tears and tender hearts.
