Let us present to you another book in the Chopin series. Contexts for Warsaw. Luźne kartki z przeszłości Syreniego Grodu – Loose Leaves from the Past of the Mermaid City – by Ferdynand Hoesick. The author wrote down and documented true stories, yet he did so taking the liberties of a novel writer drawing both from the surrounding reality and creating his own. He certainly had a perfect ear for catching attractive and entertaining stories. The book proves him a charming tattler, whom – let’s admit it – we owe plenty of information about the life of the Fryderyk Chopin. Hoesick knew how to reach the right interlocutor and finagle their memories in a nifty chat, and how to write them down in elegant, yet not oversophisticated, Polish. Chopin is among key figures in his publication, even if the main protagonist is Warsaw – the Warsaw of the 19th and early 20th centuries, no longer extant, but very much alive again on the pages of stories penned down by Hoesick.
