Gałczyński i Monty Python? O nową interpretację Zielonej Gęsi
MetadataShow full item record
This article presents and analyses a striking similarity between Zielona Gęś (The Green Goose), a collection of short plays by Polish poet K. I. Gałczyński, published first in 1946−1950, and the BBC series Monty Python’s Flying Circus broadcast in 1969−1974. Although Gałczyński and the British comedy group never met and while they belonged to different generations, they created similar humorous worlds often using the same literary motifs and cultural inspirations. The origin of the ‘isomorphic’ relation has to do with their similar intellectual backgrounds as well as connections to the English tradition of literary nonsense.
