Summary/Abstract: On the basis of Bibliografi a literatury polskiej „Nowy Korbut” I established a number ofwriters who were active after 1863: there were 111 people. 35 of them took part in the JanuaryUprising, which disproves the idea of Positivism as an antinational movement. After the fall ofthe Uprising, some writers emigrated for a short time. Writers’ mobility was great, but it wasrelated to looking for work for intelligentsia rather than political oppression. Literary geographyreveals the following regularity: the same writers published their works in Cracow, Lviv, Poznańand Warsaw. The writers and the publishers performed an integrational role in the countrywhich was partitioned between three hostile countries.
