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 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 occuring in the stories. There is no other reader dealing exclusively with twentieth-century Polish prose."This collection of modern (post-war) Polish short stories representing fifteen authors, may be used, as the author suggests in the introduction, as a companion volume to his "Beginning Polish," and is intended for the use of first and second year students of the Polish language."-Slavonic and East European ReviewSchenker, Alexander M. is the author of 'Fifteen Modern Polish Short Stories' with ISBN 9780300013252 and ISBN 0300013256.
