Abstract: The book constitutes an overview of the Polish dramatic works created after 1989. The number of drama texts published has considerably increased for the period of twenty‑some years; the form of dramas, as well as a direction of an academic reflection on these works have changed, too. One can point to many texts breaking the rules characterizing the very genre, such as eventfulness, presentation of human relationships in the form of a dialogue, a linear action finished with the conflict solution among the group of various plays. The three chapters of the book subsequently discuss three important textological issues: the problem of mimesis, reference to a literary tradition, and the issues of a linguistic material. The whole aims at picturing various offences as regards classical and modern compositional models of a drama, with the reservation that a transgressive aesthetics, typical of contemporary dramaturgy, is revealed in latest Polish dramas not as commonly and clearly as one could assume. Apart from many heterogeneous texts, dismantling traditional drama categories (paradoxically still defined by their authors as dramas) the latest dramaturgy contains a lot of plays conventionally built, in accordance with priorities and aspirations of a standard socio‑moral writing. The main aim of the book is to discuss dominant strategies of writing dramatic works, created with an intention to reproduce political, economic and moral changes in Poland these days. Starting from the end of the 1990s, one can observe a gradual change in accent distribution in plays: the play topics change, which is obvious, and, hence, the images of the modern world inscribed in them. Also, what changes is an examination perspective, and the way of presenting both the present and the past. The authors often expose problems related to the sense of an individual and national identity, provoking a reader to ask questions and verify beliefs. The latest Polish dramaturgy is composed of a collection of various texts among which one can find opinions serving reader’s orientation on various spaces and discourses of the postmodern world.
