The Polish Political Elite under Examination and in Depiction by Stanisław Wyspiański

Janusz Goćkowski

The article presents radical and consistent critique of the Polish political elite by Stanislaw Wyspianski – the examples are his eight dramas, interpreted as black political comedies. Stanislaw Wyspianski accuses the elite of lack of factual knowledge and efforts to fulfil Polish national interests and aspirations. He brings as well an accusation of lack of socio-political imagination, ingenuity and resourcefulness in social engineering, lack of the ability to think in terms of strategy and lack of boldness in thinking, which is a duty of public life leaders.
