"Zagadnienia Rodzajów Literackich" (2018), T. 61, z. 2, s. 37-50
The article traces historical discourses of the avant-garde from the perspective of models
of gender roles, starting with the analysis of the most radical Futurist ideas of the role of
women. The crucial point is the interpretation of the slogan “scorn for women” and its
connection with the critical judgement of bourgeois representations of the world. The
main point of the last part of the article is an approach to the first poem by Aleksander Wat,
the interpretation of which seems to show wasted avant-garde capability for considering
the idea of gender.
