not yet rated|write a review
Mr. Schenker now supplements his Beginning Polish with a selection of fifteen unabridged, annotated short stories, each by a different author, to be used in beginning and intermediate college courses in Polish. All of the stories, which were written within the last twenty-five years, are set in contemporary Poland, and are by authors generally considered to be among the most significant and interesting in post-World War II Poland. Each selection is preceded by an English-language biography and literary appreciation of the author. Problems that might be encountered by the reader – whether of a linguistic or cultural nature – are explained in footnotes, and a glossary at the end of the book contains all of the words occurring in the stories. There is no other reader dealing exclusively with twentieth-century Polish prose.
Mr. Schenker is chairman of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literature at Yale University.
