Summary/Abstract: The article discusses the problematic status of mountain literature and anthologization processes that shape it. Mountain literature was developed in opposition to the core of modern literature and at the same time was determined by the impulses and phenomena shaping modernism. The author describes the character of selected Polish anthologies of the second half of the 20th century as specific practices defining modern mountain texts. He considers the anthologization procedures to be consistent with processes of collecting and differentiating, which are distinctive for the modern culture.
