And it was something he did from his childhood almost until his death — he went on his last ski trip during medical examinations in the United States — he lived in Guatemala at the time — in April , two months before his death. Let's add to this his passion for bicycles, which became widely known. His place in Polish culture owes primarily to the fact that his command of the pen was unrivalled, practicing primarily the genres, which can be found in the so-called belles-lettres: letters, journals, travel essays.
After all, let's consider how we would know about his passion for sport and model-making, his peregrinations at the end of the world, that is Guatemala, his legacy of combining reflection with physical effort, if he himself did not write about it, and moreover in such an attractive way!?

Added to this are hundreds of brilliant letters in which he describes himself on many occasions and in different periods of his life. How did his literary path develop? What were his writing and intellectual inspirations? Half jokingly, it can be said that Andrzej Bobkowski began to write almost at birth. He continued to correspond abundantly; during his studies at the SGH he exchange about letters with his future wife, Barbara.
These publications included important texts by Bobkowski, including the widely discussed Farewell in "Kultura" and Lourdes, published in "Tygodnik Powszechny", which received much literary acclaim. But Bobkowski was firmly connected with the Instytut Literackie, and years later Jerzy Giedroyc would count him among his most important contributors.
It is worth noting that after the war Bobkowski was more connected to American and Anglo-Saxon culture rather than French European culture, which in turn was characteristic of him between He wanted to capture the sum of experience and ideas of the generation that survived two world wars and the collapse of civilization after the end of the second one.
Unfortunately, his death made it impossible to accomplish this goal. At the time of its publication, that is, in the late autumn of , one would not have thought that it would be his most important book or that he would gain the status you have mentioned.

The thing is, Bobkowski started writing the diary as an unknown author, so he did not have to take into consideration how the diary would be received by readers who would know him from other types of texts, such as novels and short stories.
This gave him the freedom to express himself and the characters he mentions, and to explore the issues he addressed. You studied Mr. Later, as we know from correspondence, he kept hold of the nine notebooks making up his diary. Ultimately, the successful powers of persuasion by Jerzy Giedroyc, during Bob's visit to Paris in , led in the following year to the publication of "those two bricks of mine," as he called his two-volume edition of the journal in the letters.
Bobkowski had no intention of publishing the autobiographical notes he had made during the war. Both in terms of style and the views presented. He appreciated their participation in the war, but from the viewpoint of the European humanist he perceived the "primitivism" of both the United States and Russia, writing in this case the "satiated animal" USA and the "hungry animal" USSR , with concern about the future of civilization from the perspective of an "Old" European.
The most radical transformation concerned the image of the author himself, authentic records show the evolution of his personality - there is no lack of records depicting internal struggles, fluctuations, reflections on the need for self-development. What happened to him later? Through him he met Jerzy Giedroyc and became one of the editor's most important contributors. At first, Bobkowski, with great difficulty, develops his business - and finally opens his own Guatemala Hobby Shop.

What is Bob's place in literature today? MN — Today, in many circles, Bobkowski seems to be one of the most respected Polish writers of the midth century. For years, he has been studied by the most distinguished literary researchers but, as Andrew St. Kowalczyk pointed out, in the case of Bobkowski, recognition by researchers is complemented by the enthusiasm of ordinary readers.
