In his preface to The Nigger of the ‘Narcissus’, Joseph Conrad described the goal of his writing rather elegantly, saying,“My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word to make you hear, to make you feel – it is, before all, to make you see.”That’s not every writer’s aim, of course, but they all want to show us something with the written word.Their stories paint a picture of a world – sometimes modelled on our own reality, other times entirely fictional.When we read, we imagine these worlds.Sometimes we even dream about finding ourselves in them.During this year’s Conrad Festival, we decoded to make this dream come true, at least in part.We will be guided through Poland’s literary world byMarek Bieńczyk, Mikołaj Łoziński, Agnieszka Pajączkowska, Małgorzata Rejmer, Joanna Rudniańska, Zyta Rudzka and Magdalena Tulli.
