A Poet and His City

A new exhibition at the Museum of Literature celebrates Polish poet, prose writer, playwright and theater actor Miron Bia這szewski, regarded as one of this country’s greatest avant-garde writers of the 20th century.

Born and raised in Warsaw, Bia這szewski (1922-1983) spent his entire life in the Polish capital. The exhibition explores the impact the poet and his city had on each other.

In his work, Bia這szewski conveyed a unique a mix of sharp poetical imagery, detailed descriptions and the language of the street cited with tape-recorder accuracy. Years after they were written, his poems are like “photographs” of the Polish language, of special events and everyday matters.

The exhibition comprises manuscripts from archives at the Museum of Literature, including poems, prose, letters, excerpts from a diary Bia這szewski kept and rough drafts of his book Journal of the Warsaw Uprising. The items on display include photographs of the Na Tarczy雟kiej and Osobny theaters established by Bia這szewski. Visitors to the museum can see Polish Film Chronicle newsreels with footage from plays staged at the two theaters.

Until Dec. 31
