If we discuss the third part of “Dziady” and show students that there was a group called Kaliber 44, which recorded a whole album inspired by Adam Mickiewicz’s drama, they ask themselves what happened in this book – said Katarzyna Włodkowska in “Fakty po Faktach” known as the educator of “Pole Guy”. Together with the writer Grzegorz Kalinowski, they discussed how to encourage young people to read. Kalinowski assessed that “reading of good books is dying out rather slowly”.

Teacher Katarzyna Włodkowska from the Superbelfrzy RP group, also known as the online educator “Pole guy” and former teacher, historian and writer Grzegorz Kalinowski talked in Saturday’s “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 about how to encourage young people to read books, including also school books.

According to Katarzyna Włodkowska, when it comes to “The Doll” by Bolesław Prus, “The Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov, “Forefathers’ Eve” by Adam Mickiewicz or works by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, “the matter looks much easier” than, for example, with books by Eliza Orzeszkowa.

– If, for example, we discuss the third part of “Dziady” and show students that there was a hip-hop group Kaliber 44 that recorded an entire album inspired by Mickiewicz’s drama, they ask themselves what happened in this book that made it so deep fascination, she said.

– If they look at Wokulski as a stalker who follows Izabela, then perhaps these characters will cease to be archaic, and literature will cease to be a dead letter and can be refreshed a bit – she assessed.

“Reading is not dead, but reading good books is slowly dying out”

– I used to think, very naively, that the “Harlequin” series would make the readership die – admitted Grzegorz Kalinowski. As he said, “reading has not died, but the reading of good books is dying out rather slowly.”

The writer also assessed that it is worth considering “what to do to (…) encourage ‘The Master and Małgorzata’, ‘The Peasants’, how to show that ‘The Doll’ is the story of a stalker from the 19th century”.
