Languages of publication
The poetics of nostalgia in late works of Jan Józef SzczepańskiThe author of the sketch examines the genesis of nostalgia in the works of an outstanding novelist Jan Józef Szczepański (1919-2003). It stems both from the historical experience and the moral principles taken by the authorofPolish Autumn,in his life and rich output, from Joseph Conrad. The defense of the Conrad’s ethos in the authoritarian system of the People’s Republic of Poland had been Szczepański’s principal task since his debut until late 1990s. The nostalgia is strongest in the following works: Mija dzień [The Day Is Passing](1994), Jeszcze nie wszystko [Not Everything Yet] (1997), Rozłogi (1997), Obiady przy świecach [Candlelight Dinners] (2003), published in the last decade of his life full of manhood and various suffering.
