About the Book:

Anna Nasilowska’s A History of Polish Literature is a one-volume guide that immerses readers in the rich tapestry of Polish literature and reveals its enduring impact on European identity from the Middle Ages to the late twentieth century. By exploring key themes, writers, and works and grounding her discussion in crucial biographical context, she weaves together the lives of a carefully curated list of Polish writers to paint a vivid literary portrait, elucidating the epochs that these writers shaped. Offering indispensable insights for readers who may be unfamiliar with the world of Polish literature, it is an excellent jumping-off-point for further study and learning. (The book was translated from the Polish by Anna Zaranko, the 2023 Found in Translation recipient.)

Anna Nasiłowska is a Polish professor, scholar, poet, novelist and literary critic. Her works include several biographical studies, featuring subjects such as the French couple Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre; the Polish female poet Maria Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska; the Japanese father-son-duo Ryochu and Yoshiho Umeda; and, most recently, the Polish playwright Sławomir Mrożek. She currently works at the Institute of Literary Research in Warsaw, Poland and is the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the journal Teksty Drugie, as well as a member of the “Archives of Women: Writing” project team. She has been the President of the Association of Polish Writers since 2017.
