Description :

Language: English Brand New Book. This volume is a study of approximately thirty coming-of-age Polish novels written by the so-called 89ers -- the generation who became adults just as Communist rule was ending. Narrating fictionalized childhoods in Poland in the 1970s and 80s and the transition to adulthood in the late 80s and early 90s, these novels depict the consequences of the fall of Communism for their protagonists maturation process. Svetlana Vassileva-Karagyozova argues that the liminal aspects of these narratives, in which the protagonists rites of passage remain suspended in important ways, reflect the effects of the cataclysmic events of the late 1980s as well as the ways in which, for the Polish 89ers, the clash with their predecessors did not produce the anticipated generational change in leadership. Instead, the elders refused to give up their leadership positions, while the young were stifled in their development and occupied marginal social spaces. In Vassileva-Karagyozova s fascinating account, these novels illuminate the authors attempts to define themselves as a generation as well as to narrate the sociocultural shift in democratic Poland from collectivism to Western-style individualism. Svetlana Vassileva-Karagyozova is associate professor of Slavic languages and literatures at the University of Kansas. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : How do historical cataclysms affect the social conditioning of young people? How do individuals born in the same period come to form an identifiable ""generation""? How do coming-of-age stories create a sense of community and generational identity? Coming of Age under Martial Law: The Initiation Novels of Poland's Last Communist Generation addresses these questions, examining a selection of post-1989 coming-of-age novels authored by the generation ofPolish writers whose transition from adolescence to adulthood coincided with Poland's transition from communism to liberal democracy. Svetlana Vassileva-Karagyozova argues that when cataclysms of any nature overlap with the sensitive period of maturation into adulthood, they disrupt the natural rhythm of society's self-renewal. In the case of the Polish '89ers, the generational clash with their predecessors did not produce the anticipated generational change in leadership, but a pathological role reversal: the elders refused to give up their leadership positions, while the young were stifled in their development and occupied marginal social spaces. This social imbalance isprofoundlly reflected in the content and themes of the novels produced by this younger generation, as the author shows. Svetlana Vassileva-Karagyozova is an assistant professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Kansas.

Review: Brilliantly reversing the traditional inquiry--how do generations shape literature?--Vassileva-Karagyozova asks: "How do (works) shape 'the identity of Poland's last communist generation'?" . . . This is a much-needed addition to the scholarship on cultural work in Poland, as it overthrew the chains of communism and moved toward democracy and freedom. In sum, this is a brilliant work by an original and perceptive scholar. Essential. CHOICE Vassileva-Karagyozova takes into consideration aspects of gender, postcolonial literary theory, anthropology, sociology and psychology and draws a convincing picture of a society in transition and its generational struggles.
