I thank Ludmiła Gruszewska-Blaim and Artur Blaim for inviting me to publish my book in this series.
I would like to express my utmost gratitude to David Malcolm who was encouraging, supportive and helpful at all the stages of my development as a literary scholar. I am also most indebted to Andrzej Zgorzelski who has inspired me to think about literature the way I do, and who first drew my attention to H. G. Wells’s short stories. I thank Jerzy Jarniewicz whose insight into my theoretical understanding of the notion of literary tension allowed me to correct my initial assumptions.
I also thank my husband Sławek Leleń and our children Mateusz, Franek and Marysia for their love, support of my work, and all the strength they give me. ← 13 | 14 →
