  • Interaction of Lithuanian and Belarusian Dialects in the Surroundings of

    • Authors: Nijolė Tuomienė
      Pages: 48 - 60
      Abstract: The research focuses on the interaction of the Lithuanian and Belarusian languages in the
      surroundings of Radun (Belarus, Voranava district, Lith. Rodūnia). Employing the language change
      methodology, the paper presents a detailed analysis of the most prominent cases of phonetic interference of
      two – old and middle – generations of residents in both languages spoken by them.
      The data show that the oldest residents are expressing both languages using the Lithuanian articulatory base. Over time, the characteristic Lithuanian features begin to level: varies the pronunciation of a; in open endings, the long tense vowels i, ы are usually pronounced as é; unstressed vowels are reduced inconsistently, etc.
      As Lithuanian is for the middle-generation speakers, it already demonstrates essential changes, which
      occurred because they started expressing their Lithuanian using the Belarusian articulatory base. First of all, they usually lengthen stressed short vowels; they do no longer pronounce unstressed long vowels; they do
      not distinguish between acute – or circumflex-accented mixed i, u + R type diphthongs; the distinction between the falling and rising diphthongs ai, au, is made based on phonetic, not accentual, factors; the palatalised dental consonants t, d are replaced by the palatalised velar consonants k, g.

  • Hero vis-à-vis Author

    • Authors: Kujtim Rrahmani
      Pages: 61 - 73
      Abstract: This article examines the complex relationship between the hero and the author. Through a reflexive phenomenological tone, it is argued that the hero depicts the emotional seed of the subject itself while the author is the beautiful mind that projects events and worlds by cultivating the intellectual seed. The call of adventure as a ringing bell for the hero and the author, the proclaimed Death of the Author, the almost confirmed Death of the Hero, and the horizon of the Teacher’s Death are discussed. In this setting, the fear from the authority of the hero and the author remains imminent. This article attempts to move beyond the horizon of death certificates in order to reach primary frequencies at the nexus between author and hero, derived from the very inner tones of the human psyche that come as a call to take us away to the beautiful world of Aha Erlebnis. The author and the hero – they do matter.

  • Regional Identity and Multiculturalism: the Baltic Germans of Latgale in
           the Early 20th Century Latvian Literature

    • Authors: Alina Romanovska
      Pages: 74 - 85
      Abstract: In the studies of Latvian culture and history, there is a number of investigations dedicated to the influence of Baltic German culture on Latvian culture. Hence the Latgale region was not given due attention in this regard. The role of the Baltic Germans in this region is peculiar due to its specific history, and it is important to study how the Baltic German culture influences the multicultural identity of Latgale. A project of the Latvian Science Council The Baltic Germans of Latgale in the context of socio-ethnic relations from the 17th until the beginning of the 20th century (2020–2021) is devoted to this topic. One of the tasks of the project is the analysis of the image of the Baltic Germans in fiction. In the framework of the research, the works written in the Latvian literary language, the action of which is set in Latgale, are analysed. The focus is on fictional works about Latgale written by two authors – Antons Austriņš (1884–1934) and Ādolfs Ers (1885–1945) – in the first and second decades of the 20th century. The said writers are the first currently distinguished authors narrating in the Latvian literary language, who describe Latgale in a number of their works. Compared to other nationalities (Poles, Russians, Jews), the Baltic Germans are mentioned minimally in their works; moreover, it is a commonplace that in some cases protagonist’s belonging to German descent is not mentioned, which can only be inferred. Although the Baltic Germans belong to the Latgale past, their culture is imperceptibly and harmoniously apparent in Latgale, i.e. it is evident in the castles (castle ruins) and manors as well as in the use of Germanisms by the Baltic Germans, it has determined the location of the Latgale cities and influenced the worldview.

  • Language, Representation and Fetish. Hunger in “The Shawl” by
           Cynthia Ozick

    • Authors: Bartosz Sowiński
      Pages: 98 - 110
      Abstract: The Shawl by Cynthia Ozick is an extremely intriguing attempt at writing hunger, loss and the Holocaust. The novella transforms into a meditation on the possibility of depicting traumatic sensations, which easily defy symbolisation. As she casts suspicion on language and literature, and more broadly representation, Ozick adheres to the tradition of Jewish aniconism. However, she does so in an ostentatiously literary manner, verging on the idolatry of fiction. Ozick discards verisimilitude and hyperrealism in the representations of hunger and the Holocaust. In so doing, she suggests that the illusion of immediacy they produce is merely a fetish rather than the literary celebration of the body. Ozick’s ambitions may be more moderate, but they are certainly more honest. She explores the irreconcilable differences between the realms of the sensual and the literary. However, she also seems to say “literature in spite of all” (to misquote Georges Didi-Huberman’s dictum), thereby articulating her affirmation of the linguistic medium and literature despite all their shortcomings and deficiencies.

  • The Concept of “Thrownness” in Algis Budrys's Short Story “Wall
           of Crystal, Eye of Night”

    • Authors: Svetozar Poštič
      Pages: 111 - 121
      Abstract: This paper analyses the concept of thrownness and the related notions of immediacy and actuality in a 1961 short science fiction story “Wall of Crystal, Eye of Night” by Algis Budrys. It first defines the concept of thrownness (Geworfenheit), created and coined by the German philosopher Martin Heidegger in his classic book Being and Time, and it explains how this notion can be employed in literary analysis in general and applied to this work in particular. The article then analyses how certain stylistic devices in the short story, namely similes, change of pace and the presentation of an inner conflict in the main character, contribute to the feeling of authenticity. In other words, it attempts to exhibit the means used in a prose work to make it seem more realistic and immediate. Finally, the work also argues that science fiction is in many ways more real than other fictional works. Although it belongs to the genre that has traditionally been denied serious literary merit, the novel view and interpretation of this story aims to disclose new horizons of artistic expression that illuminate human mental and physical frailty and stimulate a valuable inquiry into the meaning of life.

  • Masculinity in Algirdas Landsbergis's Short Stories

    • Authors: Gabija Bankauskaitė, Raminta Stravinskaitė
      Pages: 122 - 133
      Abstract: In interwar and post-war societies, men were required to show endurance, courage, and emotional stability, but their traumas, caused by the experience of war and the economic, political, and social realities of the post-war period, are just started to be analysed. Algirdas Jeronimas Landsbergis (1924–2004), a playwright, prose writer, editor, literary and theatre critic of the Lithuanian diaspora, conveys these themes in his work. The images of masculinity revealed in the texts help clarify the general experience of the society hidden ingician and lover are distinguished.the works and understand what kind of masculinity prevailed in society after the world wars changed the lives of women and men. Using K. G. Jung’s theory of analytical psychology, the article analyses A. Landsbergis’ short stories, which literature researchers less studied. Texts are explored as reflections and shapers of society, and in the case of masculinity, it is discussed what is meant by the archetypes of masculinity recorded in the literature. Based on the work of R. L. Moore and D. Gillette and J. C. Campbell, the archetypes of the divine child, the child prodigy, the Oedipus child and the hero and mature masculinity – the king, warrior, magician and lover are distinguished.

  • Michał Kaziów: the Way to Independence of the Blind Writer in the
           Context of Selected Issues of Narrative Medicine and Human Rights

    • Authors: Marta Bolińska, Patryk Zieliński
      Pages: 145 - 157
      Abstract: The article undertakes constructive reflection on the loss of human health in the context of the issue
      of disability, with an indication that it is a state of mind rather than actual, physical impotence. The main
      subject of considerations is the attitude of the writer, Michał Kaziów, perceived as a way to independence and
      creativity developed as a result of his health condition in the light of selected issues of narrative medicine and
      human rights. The paper presents the difficult fate of Kaziów after a permanent loss of fitness (L. Kowalewski,
      M. Czerwińska) under the model of social disability (P. Hunt, M. Oliver) and an autobiographical attitude
      (M. Czermińska). The views of R. Charon (a doctor and a literary scholar) and her co-workers were also taken
      into account, according to which narrative medicine is a specific, well thought and described in the literature
      on the subject form of clinical (and didactic) practice that supports the process of diagnosis and treatment.
      Simultaneously, a review of laws and regulations on the creation of legal norms that supported people with
      disabilities and their evolution was undertaken. The whole text correlates with the thesis that the change in
      approach to disability is a living testimony to overcoming difficulties and their consequences, both in an
      individual and collective experience.

  • Comment, Rating, Opinion, Review – the Preliminary Research

    • Authors: Monika Jaworska
      Pages: 158 - 169
      Abstract: The article focuses on functional speech genres used on the Internet to assess the level of customer satisfaction after purchasing goods and services on portals with various offers. It attempts to define what genre is used in the texts called commentaries, evaluations, opinions and consumer reviews. Both Internet users and providers of goods and services use these terms interchangeably. The situation may result from the fact that in the ordinary mind, they constitute one genre. The text introduces the research on the statements of internet users expressing their opinion on the transaction, the purchased products, and the service provided. Nowadays, the Internet has such a large social impact that it is important to examine the changes in speech genres existing in the Internet space in relation to their prototypes derived from the literary tradition.

  • Rethinking the Traumatic Memory of the Holocaust in Literature (Based on

    • Authors: Uliana Yevchuk
      Pages: 170 - 180
      Abstract: The article analyzes the attempt to reconstruct the historical memory of the Holocaust in the novel by Polish writer Monika Schneiderman “Fałszerze pieprzu. Historia rodzinna”. The writer questions the issue of Polish-Jewish relations, the responsibility and guilt of Holocaust witnesses to its victims. The author, who has a complex identity, seeks to find out for herself why her Polish family did not show enough sympathy for the suffering of Jews during World War II, including her Jewish relatives. As such indifference on the part of Poles to Holocaust victims was quite common, Monica Schneiderman tries to explain this by examining the relations between societies who lived side by side for centuries in the pre-war period, concluding that the two
      neighbouring nations lived in separate communities that were not open to each other. Based on the reproduction of the history of her own family, the author seeks answers to difficult questions of
      universal human values – perception and understanding of others, empathy, compassion. In her works Monica Schneiderman shows the need to include these recently “closed” but extremely important topics in the public discourse.
