Keywords: reportage; sociography; literary reportage
Summary/Abstract: My study aims to examine the emergence and connections of two non-fictional genres, reportage and sociography. Modernization forms the background for both genres: reportage is a product of urbanization, while sociography was created by the need for the modernization of the village and the necessity of the peasantry’s emancipation. The study describes the parallels between the two genres based on the work of the first noteworthy Hungarian journalist-reporter, Kornél Tábori, and the activities of the sociographists of the 1930s, touching on their connections to literature and sociology as well. The study also discusses literary reportage, as cultivated by both Polish and Hungarian writers at the turn of the century and during the interwar period. In the closing remarks, the parallels between sociography in Polish and world literature are pointed out (the Przedmieście group, Neue Sachlichkeit, LEF, Novyi LEF).
