Summary/Abstract: The presented edition contains critical writings of Donat Kirsch, one of the leading representatives of the “artistic revolution in prose”, defined in the 1970s by Henryk Bereza. Born in 1953, Kirsch first appeared as an author of artistic prose (including his debut, award‑winning Liście croatoan), but apart from that he also dealt with literary criticism and essay writing. In the early 1980s he settled in the USA, where he has been working as an IT specialist. However, he never ceased writing.The publication includes two voluminous texts, similar in their character to the program statements. The first of them, Elaborat – debiuty lat siedemdziesiątych, originally appeared in the pages of “Twórczość” in 1981. This edition has been complemented by unpublished fragments found in Kirsch’s letters to Bereza. The second text, Kronika pewnej eliminacji, was created in 2018. It verifies – after almost 40 years – the thesis put forward in Elaborat, offering, at the same time, an original look over the history of literature and literary life in post‑war Poland.
