Item description for The Birch Grove and Other Stories (Central European Classics) by Jaros Aw Iwaszkiewicz, Antonia Lloyd-Jones & Leszek Kolakowski...

Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz's work is familiar to every Polish reader, yet remains unknown to the outside world. The stories in this selection were all written in the 1930s, and provide an extraordinary evocation of Poland's first brief era of independence between the wars. They are also timeless sonatas of love and loss.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Birch Grove and Other Stories (Central European Classics)?

a classic of European literature  May 3, 2007
Its a classic from a relatively unknown literature from part of the world that is still in our heartland. Extremely moving and beautiful stories about universal themes, with a poetic style of great writing. The translator does it justice.
Excellent stories by J. Iwaszkiewicz.  Nov 29, 2002
Themes of these stories are the opposition eros/thanatos, old/young, jealousy, the prime impulses of humanity.
His scenery is the Polish countryside with its noblemen and peasantry.
His technique is modern, mingling past and present with flashbacks.
The Birch Grove, for instance, relates in violent terms a live-and-death struggle of two brothers for a girl.
Surprising work.
