Summary/Abstract: Julian Tuwim was a tireless collector and book‑lover. He created anthologiesthroughout his whole life, augmenting his library of books and curiosities.The author strives to fathom what creating anthologies meant for the poet before WorldWar 2 and how it changed after the war. Julian Tuwim’s anthologies constitute a literaryrepresentation of a collection. The sketch is also an occasion to look for a linkbetween the passion for collecting and the art of creating an anthology.
