We are focusing here on central Europe, defined in a relatively flexible way as broadly the area between what is always regarded as Western Europe on the one side and Russia on the other. It is impressive to learn about the activities of Polish IBBY, including competitions for the Book of the Year, especially since so much of what they produce is bilingual in Polish and English.
We are also grateful for an article by Maria Ostasz on a longer period of Polish writing for children and for Darja Mazi-Leskovar s account of Slovenian. We are aware that many countries are unrepresented here, except perhaps in the reviews, in the material from Pam Robson s database and in a personal memoir about Hungary. I hope that the absence of so many other central European countries will inspire those who know something about them to send material for a future issue.
There is perhaps only one excuse for the reluctance of English-speaking readers to engage with in other European languages the difficulty of deciding which language to choose, in the absence of a single candidate comparable on a world scale to, for instance, Arabic, Chinese or, of course, English itself.
The logical choice would probably be Spanish, but relatively few British enthusiasts for would be able to claim expertise in reading that language.
We may sigh about the sparsity of books available in English translations, while publishers tend to complain that those they do produce generally don t sell. Clearly there is a case for better information all round, in the hope of inspiring more potential customers with a zest to read in translation. The situation may well be improving, especially with the impetus given by the biennial Marsh Award but the preponderance of books shortlisted is likely to be from the Latin or Germanic languages, at least until we have more translators capable of doing justice to books in the languages of central and eastern Europe.
I hope that our current venture could be just a little instrumental in helping this process! The October political breakthrough triggered a number of positive processes under which started to free itself of socialist indoctrination. This brief overview has a chronological framework and also relates to genre. In it I outline important novel types and sketch the conditions in which they developed.
The historical novel of the second half of the twentieth century, written for the young, was gradually divesting itself of the political newspeak of the early s. Readers could identify their own physical and psychological problems about growing up: The next decades produced realistic stories reflecting the vicissitudes of young life: These authors focus on psychological reasons behind the protagonist s actions and behaviour, limiting the social milieu to the school and the family environments.
The protagonists of these novels do not live through any great conflicts but experience the joy of being together among their peers, family and friends. The turn of the s also witnessed a growth in popularity of adventure and adventure travel books. Very popular among boy readers was a series of adventure-travel novels written by Alfred Szklarski and featuring Tomek Wilmowski: In all the nine parts, the main protagonist s adventures provide space for a detailed description of exotic geography and culture the young boy turns out not only to be morally respectable but also extremely knowledgeable and brave.
The atmosphere of a great adventure is also found in Arkady Fiedler s books: Adam Bahdaj wrote Wakacje z duchami [Holidays with the ghosts]Uwaga! Czarny parasol [Look out! In all these books the reader follows the protagonists tracking down spies, political opponents, and thieves stealing and smuggling invaluable pieces of art. The crime story plot is turned into an adventure novel to serve both entertainment and moral teaching purposes.
The period after witnessed big changes in Poland s reality, reflected in numerous novels by Siesicka: These were insightful studies of teenage problems sketched against a broad social background. The last of these titles shows the fatal influence of fantasy games on the young psyche. An interesting formal device is used by Siesicka in her Piosenka koguta [Cock s song], where the protagonist narrator attempts a reflection on time, the passing of things, freedom and the inner limitations of the human being.
In the s, reality fiction for the young was also created by female writers of the younger generation. It s fun to stay oneself]Magda. Zanim nadejdzie rozstanie [First love: Before the parting comes] and Do rana daleko [It s still time before the morning comes] The same type of writing is practised by Ewa Przybylska: Each of these books shows a painful modern experience: Breaking the taboos in novels for the young, first started by Tomek Tryzna in with his Panna Nikt [Miss Nobody], has occurred as a result of different artistic genres.
It realistically describes social and cultural space of Poland in the last thirty years. Opium w rosole [Opium in broth] features the martial period and Pulpecja 1 is about the privatisation of economy. These events serve as the background for the 1 A nickname. The great popularity of the series can be ascribed to the creative use of a family saga, together with models of the rites-of-passage book and the moral novel.
Contemporary Polish young adult fiction has developed mainly in the form of the moral novel, fantasy, or the action adventure novel. This is a story of some pupils whose passion for solving detective puzzles matches their need to help others. The development of a detective adventure plot has empathic overtones. The teen detectives undertake an emotional mission of confronting crude reality: Niziurski is a master of suspense and the merit of his latest novels is the combination of empathetic moral teaching and an entertaining plot.
Children s Books in Central Europe
Although he is talking about serious problems, the stories are both moving and entertaining. Another author of youth fiction worth a mention is Dorota Terakowska, whose writing, popular with teen readers, is also appreciated by literary critics. The artistic success of Terakowska s books is due to the use of magic realism and symbolism, which support affective and cognitive processes in the young, as well as to the combination of plot schemes, characteristic of the rite-of-passage and the psychological novel.
As this brief discussion of contemporary teen fiction in Poland has attempted to show, over the last decades literary writing for the young has undergone considerable changes in the genres, construction of characters and in the strategies of communication between the writer and the reader.
Its importance lies in the considerable number of emergent names, the distinct presence of the younger generation of graphic designers, and the formation and establishment of publishing standards in the domain of books. The stormy quality relates to the interest of literary critics and university researchers accompanying the development of this kind of.
Moreover, because of meaningful initiatives All Poland Reading to Children, Canon of Books for Children and Adolescents, and the Art for the Young Prize awarded by the president of the Republic of Polandthe wider public has also become more interested in. In both areas, was a crucial year in relation to the shaping of the modern market for books. The most significant offerings of prose works intended for younger fakbanki may be summarised as being in the realm of laughter.
The dominant feature is wit, based, on the one hand, on the adaptation of the narrator s knowledge to the child s perspective as far as the understanding of the world goes, and, on the other hand, on the contrasted features of the krytsyna. In these works, a note of reflection typically accompanies the humorous wiesicka, while the didactic quality is very subtly intertwined with the plot.
Unlike the prose of earlier years and contrary to current sociological predictions, strong, emotional communication between father and children underlies both writers prose works, which is combined not infrequently with an image of a complete and happy family.
Literary works such as these, by introducing implied siesicks into happy family life, into a circle of people who actually sieslcka each other and make up a genuine community of laughter, may act as a kind of compensation for those who lack this background.
Clearly evident here are echoes of the creative attitudes of earlier writers such as Tuwim and Brzechwa who treated the child seriously but presented the adult figures in a distorting mirror.
The realm of laughter is the domain of childhood, so it is quite natural that the literary public thus addressed has received the book fqlbanki genuine interest. A reflective and more intimate trend is also present in some contemporary prose works for children. This requires concentration falbznki readers, sensitivity to changing moods and a readiness to face a reality which is shaped in a symbolic way. Last but not least, it depends on the reader s gift for crossing the border of rational thinking a trait characteristic of childhood.
Whereas the humorous writers are predominantly male, slesicka based on evocative moods and reflection are predominantly written by female authors such as Liliana Bardijewska and Anna Sieesicka, though also worthy of note alongside them is the successful debut of Jacek Falbaanki. Half fairy tale and half realistic story, addressed to her own adopted son, it is an account of the difficult growth towards maturity of the adoptive parents as they come to love and gradually domesticate the initially alienated child.
New important names emerged in the mids: Many of the published books for children are masterpieces of graphic design and the kryystyna of book publishing. The contemporary graphic designer s working method consists in an organic approach to the book.
This implies a search for means of expression as a result of which visual narration is no longer simply complementary to literary narration or the author s poetic vision rendered in words. The objective is thus to quicken visual imagination and stimulate their sensitivity to art, so that, when krystjna with the element of beauty, they begin to think in non-verbal terms, in the language of images. It can be claimed that there is a new philosophy of the book where the operation of a published work involves simultaneously the word the writer s creative actsymbolic association the act of reception and visual narration the graphic designer s creative act.
This distinctive philosophy is based on the dynamic process of moving both towards and away from literary narration, with mutual relationships repeatedly emerging and disintegrating.

Illustrations at times run parallel to words and at other times tell a story of their own, quite often playing in counterpoint with the word, and the contrapuntal dialogue between images and text develops within one single work, one single publishing undertaking. In the area of prose works for adolescents, the past fifteen years bear the mark of Dorota Terakowska s oeuvre. This author of fantasy novels died in the prime of her creative powers.
Her works bring reflective insights into the most difficult problems of the present, krystyha as homelessness, striving xiesicka identity, a sense of alienation and rejection, and transcendental anxieties. Her prose suggests no ready-made solutions. On the contrary, it springs from the conviction that wisdom depends on an independent search for answers in the labyrinth of ready-made solutions and philosophical systems.
Siesicks a distinctive phenomenon, there is also the emergence of a revolutionary formula for what is known as a girl s novel, credit for which, strangely enough, does not go to female authors but to male prose writers starting their careers.
A likely conclusion may be that the traditional convention of prose for the young has undergone re-evaluation. It is a novel about a contemporary young girl who lives at the intersection of cultures: The protagonist s initiation into maturity is brutal.
This is a lowkey tale of difficult life in a poor village after the collapse of falvanki former state farm PGR. The first siesickx narration conjures up a cosy mood conducive to concentration on personal experiences and observations. Their basic quality is that of approaching reality from the standpoint of adults rather than attempting a quasi-youthful perspective.
In this way, a book for the young reader ceases to be a reading experience where the mature writer claims to know the problems of present-day adolescents.
Falbanki by Krystyna Siesicka
Instead, it turns into a form of dialogue where the experienced author is able to share his or her thoughts with the young reader with no pretence that the world described is specific to the young people s sphere of experience.
Her saga of the Borejko family, involving more than fifteen volumes, records the transformation undergone in contemporary society, the changing youth attitudes and the dynamism of culture. Krsytyna books of falbsnki saga have been at the top of popularity lists for thirty years. For historical reasons, literary production became the strongest expression of Slovenian national identity. Literature is exceptionally rich, something that is stressed also by the English researchers Gow and Carmichael Children s, too, has been extremely productive, and hence it is not possible within this paper to present works addressing all age groups.
I am limiting myself by excluding book production targeting very young children and galbanki and young adult readers.

They were used for elementary instruction until the start of the nineteenth century, when Slovenian authors started writing under the influence of Romanticism.
However, children were also initiated into the world of literary creation through oral tradition, particularly through lullabies, folk tales, fairy tales and proverbs, and through parables and other genres conveying moral and religious instruction. The start of Falbanii was strongly marked by the pronounced influence of the German Austrian cultural space.
Kryxtyna, one of the most popular tales ever written in Slovenian, Martin Krpan from Vrhwritten by Fran Levstik, presents an adult hero who outwits the emperor to whom Slovenians were subjugated.
