Fifteen Modern Polish Short Stories; An Annotated Reader and a Glossary.
Schenker, Alexander M.
This collection of short stories is intended for first- and second-year students of the Polish language. In his selection, the author has chosen only publications after World War II, to assure up-to-date language. Each writer is represented by one story only, to provide stylistic variety. Stories whose action is set in contemporary Poland, which have "artistic merit and are representative of modern Polish writing," have been included; those with an "intricate linguistic and narrative texture" or which presuppose any knowledge of Polish history and traditions have been excluded. The selections are arranged in order of increasing difficulty and are supplied with notes and a glossary. They are not adapted or simplified. This text may be used as a companion volume to the author's"Beginning Polish" (Yale University Press, 1966, 1967). (AMM)
