O monumentalnej biografistyce i jej języku – na marginesie utworów Benjamina Mosera i Agnieszki Gajewskiej


The author compares the biographies of Stanisław Lem by Agnieszka Gajewska and of Susan Sontag by Benjamin Moser. Despite the many differences between the two texts, their authors essentially perform a similar procedure of ideological re-appropriation of the characters described. The text points out several important reshuffles and omissions, which, combined, appear to contradict the basic aspirations of Lem and Sontag.
