The work attempts at defining the category of “literary generation” from the standpoint of literary criticism and sociology of literature. The author summarizes the theses of Kazimierz Wyka’s Pokolenia literackie [Literary Generations] and shows how the notion itself lost its interpretative potential. Later on, he focuses on such notions as “generational experience” and “humanist rightness.” By analysing the notion of “identity” in post-modern discourse, in turn, he shows that in fact it impossible today to think about generations in a way proposed by Wyka. Finally, a conclusion is presented regarding “generation” as still viable analytical category, but only when treated as a conscious self-proclamation of writing projecting themselves as such.
