Digitalization in practice or the work of Kazimierz Hoffman online

The digitalization of archive resources as part of the ‘Culture within Reach 2.0’ project has contributed to the creation of a new website dedicated to the life and work of Kazimierz Hoffman.

Kazimierz Hoffman Kazimierz Hoffman is the most acclaimed poet from the city of Bydgoszcz. His work is admired by contemporary authors. It is highly valued by experts, literary critics and connoisseurs of poetry. He is one of three poets from the Kuyavian and Pomeranian Voivodeship recognized in Poland, alongside Kasprowicz and Przybyszewski. He has left behind eighteen volumes of poetry and two books of essays.

The website dedicated to Kazimierz Hoffman is another step taken by the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Cultural Centre in Bydgoszcz to commemorate the Bydgoszcz poet and present his work, following, among others, the creation of the Hoffman Salon and the establishment of the National Poetry Competition for the KOS Prize. This would not have been possible without the poet’s daughter handing over the copyright to his works, some of which have been digitalized as part of the ‘Culture within Reach 2.0’ Project.  In addition to his works, biography and memorabilia related to the author of Signs, the website will present, among other things, selected memoirs about the poet, reviews of volumes of his poems and sketches, and interviews. Detailed lists of Hoffman’s published texts by and about Hoffman have been compiled in indexes, which also contain notes on people associated with the poet. The website devoted to the poet cannot fail to include information about the competitions he is a patron of – the Festival of Beautiful Reading and, above all, the National Poetry Competition  KOS for the best volume of poetry, held under the honorary patronage of the Marshal of the Kuyavian and Pomeranian Voivodeship.
