authors' profiles: polish authors in great britain
Paris used to incite the imagination of Polish emigrant writers in the 19th and 20th century. It seems that this role has been taken over by London in the 21st century. But there are some significant differences that should be borne in mind. While Paris used to be the ‘whole world’ for emigrants, London is more like the brightest sky in the constellation. The writers live all over the British Isles and write about various parts of the islands, but they usually meet and organize literary events in London or the satellite cities. The following section of the Archive presents profiles of Polish migrant authors whose books were inspired by their stay in the UK.
