    Performatyzm albo koniec postmodernizmu (American Beauty)
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Eshelman, Raoul
    The presented text is a translation of the first chapter of Eshelman’s book Performatism, or the End of Postmodernism (2008). Its main thesis is based on the assumption that along with the exhaustion of postmodernism a new aesthetic paradigm emerges, namely – performatism. Deriving his project from a new notion of sign (grounded on the anthropological theory of ostensivity by Eric Gans) and the description of a crucial aesthetic device called ‘double framing’, Eshelman tracks down symptoms of the epochal change in literary and visual works as well as in movies and architecture. The text also lays foundation for new monist concepts of subjectivity, time and history.

    Po co czytać literaturę?
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Miller, Joseph Hillis
    The essay in question is the translation of the fourth chapter of J. Hillis Miller’s book, On literature (2002), in which he circles around questions elemental yet convoluted for literary criticism. Miller reminds us about (as ancient as archetypal) dilemmas concerning the role of literature in society (e.g. Plato’s putdown of poetry and Aristotle’s defense of it) and discloses contemporary judgments covertly rooted in them. The fundamental issue is why Western culture has granted literature such great authority. His argument reposes on an assumption that literary works give us access to virtual realities that are not otherwise knowable.

    O Polsce i o Polakach w pozaantologijnych pismach osobistych cudzoziemców XVIII i XIX wieku
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Lubas-Bartoszyńska, Regina
    This text presents some autobiographical writings of foreigners, which concern Poland of 18th and 19th century with the exception of those treated in J. Gintel’s anthology. This is no problem of systematic information concerning Poland’s reality in these centuries which are to be found in commentaries and treaties. We are discussing foreign diaries, memoires and autobiographies of the following authors: G.G. Casanova, Ch.J. de Ligne, J. Michelet, V. Hugo, R. de Chateaubriand, G. Sand, E. and J. de Goncourts. These autobiographical enunciations are treated here as the credible source of information. These personal texts are destined for Polish readers, who feel specific pleasure finding some mentions concerning Poland. The readers encounter Poles as historical persons, artists, writers in the background of historical events, in travel, social and everyday life.
