Summary/Abstract: A bilingual book of poems by Petro Murianka (Piotr Trochanowski), originally written in Lemko and translated into Silesian. The poems introduce readers to minority literature and the linguistic and cultural diversity of Poland. Łymkowsko duszyczka is a contribution to the minority discourse and a proposition of literary dialogue between ethne living in Poland, but above all an opening of the Lemko world to Silesian recipients, most often completely unfamiliar with Lemkovyna – with the hope that they will want to get to know it better.
