Gombrowicz, Witold

Three volumes of autobiography covers the second half of Witold Gombrowicz’s life in Argentina, a small part of his life in Germany and France after his return to Europe in 1963 and, most of all, Poland which he left in 1939, never to return.

Gombrowicz is said to have changed the image and stereotype of the Pole through his diary - 'the faithful dog of my soul'.

'Diary', originally banned in Poland, then smuggled in, covers politics, religion, music, art, and rails against the provincial nature of Polish literature. A ranter and a raver perhaps, Gombrowicz also writes about lots of fun stuff.
