This volume contains 207 aphorisms by 80 Polish writers, spanning half a millennium of Polish literature. In his introduction, Jerzy Krzyzanowski outlines the history of that genre in Poland, which has proven to be a particularly fertile land for this literary form.

Sixteen pen and ink drawings by Barbara Swidzinska and 28 Polish proverbs translated by Helena Stankiewicz complete this remarkable exploration of true Polish wit and wisdom.
