Languages of publication
Forgotten revolution? No and yes.Agata Araszkiewicz’s book is a very interesting collection of possible ways of reading same novels from interwar period, novels written by women. By using tools mainly taken from feminist criticism such as écriture féminine or gynocriticism she builds interpretation of prose written by Aniela Gruszecka, Irena Krzywicka, Pola Gojawiczyńska, Wanda Melcer and Maria Kuncewiczowa. Araszkiewicz emphasizes it uniqueness, and by that she brings them back to history of polish literature. What is important to see, is that she focuses not only on poetics, but also on problems, themes, and, what is the most significant, on it’s aesthetic, what helps her to reveal revolutionary potential. Seen by Araszkiewicz, women’s novels from interwar period appeared not only as continuations of Young Poland poetic, but an innovative, multidimensional, autonomous space of literature with women’s signature.
