The article constitutes an overview of texts published by Konstanty A. Jeleński in the monthly Preuves. It discusses the dominant themes of the writer’s co-operation with the periodical of the Congress for Cultural Freedom. Since Jeleński published in the Preuves for sixteen years (1953-1968), it is the second most important periodical presenting the essayist’s texts, next to the Literary Institute’s Culture. The French legacy of the Polish writer has not been collected in one place yet. Numerous issues of the Preuves present Jeleński’s long essays, extensive commentaries on social and political matters, reviews of books and art events, as well as accounts and notes concerning current cultural events. The article therefore sheds light on an element of the writer’s legacy which remains largely unknown to critics and readers.
