Translation Studies in Poland, with its strong emphasis on the problems of language, style and equivalence, has paid relatively little attention to the study of the history of translation with its social, political and ideological entanglements. The few contributions to the field include the anthology Polish Writers on the Art of Translating (ed. Balcerzan, Rajewska 1977; enlarged edition 2007) and Wacław Sadkowski’s (2002) concise outline of the history of literary translation; despite this, a systematic investigation into the history of translators and their work, the position of translated literature within the domestic sphere, the impact it exerted on canon formations and the role it played in Polish writing has not yet been undertaken as the awareness of the importance of this kind of research has been rather low.
