Summary/Abstract: An anthology of Jan Kott's blunders preceded by an introduction by Maryla Zielińska which describes the relations between the former editorial team of Didaskalia magazine with Jerzy Timoszewicz. Timoszewicz's list was a present for the eighty-fifth birthday of his professor and close friend. Zielińska recalls that the editors did not accept the text for publication, because it did not “aim for the jugular and thus tripped over its own feet.” The present publication is a symbolic farewell to Jerzy Timoszewicz, who passed away on 24 March 2015.
