Keywords: Sławomir Buryła; Sławomir Buryła’s monograph “(Un)described Subjects”; Shoah discourse

Summary/Abstract: The review discusses Sławomir Buryła’s monograph “(Un)described Subjects” on prose about the Shoah issued in Poland after 1945. The reviewer shows how Buryła in his meticulous descriptions rediscovers the literature of the 1950s and of the subsequent years, restoring this part of literature to the research in the Shoah discourse. The review includes discussions on the issues that Buryła points out in his book (e.g. research in the Shoah topos), remarks on its methodology, and a confrontation of the monograph with Buryła’s earlier publications. The review, apart from brief critical remarks, shows the book’s innovativeness and its suitability for the Shoah studies development.
