The Polish theater canon and comedy : a complicated relation

2021
book section
article
dc.abstract.enThe article revisits the position of comedy in the Polish national canon - more precisely, the canon of the National Theatre in Warsaw. It was founded in 1765, and its first premiere was Józef Bielawski’s comedy "The Interlopers" based on a play by Molière. At the very beginning, the repertoire of the Polish National Theatre was modelled on the repertoire of Comédie-Française and following the ideas of Enlightenment: until the 1790s, its core consisted of comedies, both translated/adapted and original, believed to be the best way to shape citizens’ consciousness and help to build a modern, rational society. However, the idea of the Polish theatre canon drastically changed during the 19th century. In 1842, the master of Polish comedy Aleksander Fredro decided to go silent, and since then, comedy has never regained its position in the Polish canon. This article is an attempt to find an explanation of this process. The author situates Polish comedy in a broader philosophical, political, and ideological context and tries to find out what made Polish artists and intellectuals of the 19th and 20th century believe that comedy was not worthy of being staged at the National Theatre anymore.pl
