The perception and definition of woman and femininity underwent many
changes across centuries. I n modern literature there is an ever frequent tendency
to present women who departs from the framework which is imposed upon them.
It is in this way that Julia Fiedorczuk constructs her heroines in the stories from
the volume Poranek Marii i inne opowiadania. T he women in Julia Fiedorczuk’s short
stories attempt to liberate themselves from the models which are imposed upon
them and the author herself attempts to present her idea of a new definition of
femininity which eludes stereotypes.
