Summary/Abstract: The first anthology of fables by a German woman writer of the Romanticism period to appear in the Polish language, Sophie Tieck-Bernhardi (also known as Knorring) inaugurates the book series “Niemiecka literatura kobiet” [German women’s literature], which will feature literary works by German woman writers starting from 1800 until the present which heretofore were unfamiliar to Polish readers. Apart from a translation of the selected prose and poetical works, the volumes will contain a monographical treatment of the writer, her object and subject bibliographies and a note about the edition of source texts. It is not a coincidence that the series is inaugurated by the collection entitled Sophie Tieck-Bernhardi. Fantazje i marzenia, which contains translations of selected tables from the volume Wunderbilder und Träume in elf Märchen, because the path of the literary development of this writer is a part of the experiences of the subsequent generations of woman writers, who find an opportunity for self-realisation in the creative act, and above all the opportunity for fulfilling their dreams about love and happiness. By presenting the series “Niemiecka literatura kobiet” to the readers, the authors hope to familiarise the former not only with the works of the German woman writers but also the culture of a given period, indicating the position which was occupied by women and the various forms of participation of women in socio-cultural life.
