Summary/Abstract: The book by Dorota Kozicka entitled Critical (Dis)orders. A Study on Contemporary Liter-ary Criticism in Poland contributes a number of new and signifi cant ideas to the investigative discussions on the mechanisms of literary criticism. As a starting point, the author accepts a wide awareness of metacriticism, and assumes a metacritical perspective to order many and various critical discussions and attitudes of the last halfcentury (with anticipations). Fol-lowing the reinterpretations of Polish modern literary criticism traditions, she observes how in the altered cultural and communicative situation of postmodernity, the roles and functions of the critics alternate, and how they sign in to miscellaneous social and political discourses. The author’s contemplation heads for an impossible synthesis, comprising, in a dichotomous or-der, both the autonomy of critical operation and the dialogical dimension of critical self-reflection.
