Literary and cultural forays into the contemporary

Series:

Edited By Katarzyna Więckowska and Grzegorz Koneczniak

This book offers a collection of essays in literary and cultural studies. The articles explore a wide range of distinct problems and texts with the aim to question the already known and to interrogate the realms of ethics, literature, history and cultural identities. The contributors not only revive the meanings and values as they were lived at the time of creating the specific works, but also point to the ways in which these meanings continue to function for contemporary readers.

Abstract: The article compares the representation of time in Alice Munro’s short story cycle Lives of Girls and Women (1971) and its film adaptation (1994). Two aspects of the comparison are considered – the temporal setting of the narrative and the progress of time – to discuss the similarities and differences between both versions of the story.
