A STYLISTIC OUTLINE OF A GENRE: SYNTHESIS OF A NATION'S HISTORY (A RESEARCH OF THE CROATIAN AND SERBIAN TEXTS) (Synteza dziejow narodu - zarys problematyki stylistycznej gatunku (na podstawie tekstow chorwackich i serbskich))
In the article a particular genre, i.e. synthesis of a nation's history, or national historiography, is stylistically elaborated. There are at least two reasons why this sort of genre, that has never been scholarly discussed, ought to be analyzed: a socialpolitical relevance (books like A History of Poland, or A History of Croatia, or A History of Serbia play an important role in spreading historical consciousnesses and particular interpretations of history), a linguisticstylistic (the very construction of texts of this sort differs in many respects from scholar texts possessing many popularscholar linguistic markers and, additionally, since they concern history, the narrative itself has a its own peculiarity).
