Summary/Abstract: Review of Włodzimierz Bolecki’s book Inna krytyka [‘A Different Criticism’] (Universitas publishers, Cracow, 2006). The reviewer draws the reader’s attention to the character of this new book by the illustrious literature historian and critic, proving so different from this author’s previous releases. The diversity of concepts and subjects is emphasised, with special attention paid to Polish transformations of the recent two decades, as regards both social awareness and culture (literary and other), having been inspired by political events related to the political-system transition. Emphasis is also put on the book’s colourful style, tinted with polemical passion, or even irony, at times – albeit always remaining full of wise reflection.
