Literatura dziecięca polska; Literatura młodzieżowa polska
Katowice : Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Śląskiego
The book contains dissertations and drafts devoted to the classic youth literaturę (W pustyni
i w puszczy by Henryk Sienkiewicz, Kamienie na szaniec, „Zośka" i „Parasol" by Aleksander
Kamiński, Kłopoty Kacperka góreckiego skrzata, Topsy i Lupus by Zofia Kossak, and Ziele na kraterze
by Melchior Wańkowicz), a contemporary return to it, as well as its new readings, often, even
overinterpretations (Jan Sztaudynger, Władysław Broniewski) by researchers and readers. The second
direction of considerations is devoted to new literary works that have been equally popular
among youth for years. Their authors are M. Musierowicz, D. Terakowska, E. Nowak, as well as
less-known, though extremely reputable and worth popularization, contemporary writers, such as
father Łukasz Kamykowski, Zofia Chądzyńska. There is also a draft devoted to J. Papuzińska,
an outstanding expert of works for young audience and an author of “Guliwer”, a magazine on
a book for children.
The title of the publication refers to the volume of Secret gardens which appeared in 1996.
Both are related by a motive of a garden presented in almost each draft and dissertation as a space
invariably associated with the time-space of the “land of child’s years”.
