Abstract


Literature as Testimony. The Affective Social Realism of Ludwik Hering

Abstract

The author analyses a short story entitled “Meta”, which was published in 1946 in one of the Polish cultural-literary journals in the context of postwar literary and critical works depicting World War II and the Holocaust. Of particular interest here is the debate on realism undertaken immediately after the war and the stakes of realist representation as testimony to the destruction of life as we knew it before the war and of the literary form. Hering’s short story is read as an exceptional case of affective social realism, a unique literary, ethical and political project.
