Summary/Abstract: Diana Poskuta-Włodek proves that source research continues to be essential to the development of theatrology, using constantly updated methodology. She investigates this on the basis of the continuing research into the life and work of Helena Modrzejewska. In this context the prime example, according to the author, is Modrzejewska/Letters: The Correspondence of Helena Modrzejewska and Karol Chłapowski 1859-1886, Volumes 1 and 2, edited by Alicja Kędziora and Emil Orzechowski (Państwowy Instytut Wydawniczy, Warsaw 2015). It includes all the available correspondence between Modrzejewska and Chłapowski,precededby a reprint of Jerzy Got's introduction from the 1965 publication, and also furnished with an editor's note, and footnotes that are largely new or updated.
