Summary/Abstract: This article aims at examining the rhetorical strategy employed by the editorial board of the „Śląsk Literacki” quarterly as well as at reconstructing the historical context. The journal was published between 1952 and 1956; it was a part of the Katowice branch of the Polish Writers’ Union, but it also promoted writers from the area of Opole. Adopting a rhetorical perspective makes it possible to focus on the persuasive aspect of the texts published in the quarterly. Following Aristotle’s theory, modes of persuasion have been divided into three groups: logos, pathos, and ethos.
