In Stanislaw Lem: Biography, Letters, Provocation Peter Swirski brings the unknown elements of Lem's legacy to light. Filled with a welter of personal and historical detail and enriched by Lem's comments from personal letters to the author, the biographical section traces the thread of Lem's life and career in the context of his cultural influence, telling the story of one of the greatest writers and thinkers of the century. It is followed by a comprehensive critical overview of Lem's belletristic and philosophical oeuvre which comprises not only the classics like Solaris, but his untranslated first novels, realistic prose, experimental works, volumes of nonfiction, latter-day metafiction, as well as the final twenty years of polemics and essays. The letters deliver an annotated translation of Lem's fifteen-year correspondence with his principal American translator. Covering the entire central period of Lem's life and career, they offer unparalleled vistas on the raw intellectual powers, smouldering literary passions, as well as startling and revealing personal concerns. The final section comprises Swirski's first-time annotated translation of Provocation, Lem's legendary metafiction originally published in 1981 in German. Cast as a scholarly review of a fictive study by a fictitious German anthropologist-historian, it wrestles with questions about the Nazi genocide and the de-sacralization of death in contemporary society. Why would the Nazis order death-camp victims to strip naked before murdering them, but execute Jewish partisans fully dressed? Why is death re-utilized today as kitsch and as spectacle by terrorism and religious sectarianism? Provocative and thought-provoking, Lem's voice is heard again several years after his death in 2006.
