Summary/Abstract: The composition of the book After the Lessons by Małgorzata Wójcik-Dudek extracts the most important content from the articles it contains, and the proximity of individual texts enables their dialogue and often also critical commentary. The articles address issues which are close to the author’s research interests and result from her professional experience. Their subject matter oscillates around two areas: literature for children and teenagers and selected ‘school readings’ subjected to interpretation procedures that allow for refreshing and broadening the horizon of school reading of canonical titles. While reading literature for the young, the researcher proposes a non-standard look at, among other things, the Moomin series, the Professor Inkblot’s Academy by Jan Brzechwa, the work of Janusz Korczak or Antonina Domańska; using contemporary methodologies, she tries to indicate ways of reading literary texts that are in line with the assumptions of ecological humanities. As far as secondary school reading is concerned, the author is interested in the works of Bolesław Leśmian, Bruno Schulz, Andrzej Stasiuk or Olga Tokarczuk, as well as in the innovative and open to ‘new’ reading Antigone. Starting from micro-analyses, the author goes on to generalizations enabling the inclusion of the proposed texts in the story about the need to reflect on a “happy school”, focused on care and community building. This type of reading of literary texts renders them the original material to reflect on the place and role of (humanistic) education in the contemporary world.
