Metafora późnego Rzymu


According to the author of the review of a book by Jacek Hajduk entitled Parnicki, Malewska i długie trwanie (Kraków, 2014), the book successfully presented the transformations of the metaphor of “dawn and fall of Rome” in Polish historical prose of the 20th century. These transformations have undermined the hitherto functioning cultural myth on the downfall of a corrupt pagan civilization, replaced by a new, Christian civilization. In the novel Przemija postać świata, Hanna Malewska rehabilitated the “last Romans” (bestowing on them political qualities), and Teodor Parnicki has worked out a formula for a novelized study of a historical moment, understood as a dynamic, open set of circumstances.
