Polish Literature, literature of the Polish people, written primarily in the Polish language. Polish literary activity began in pagan times with folk literature transmitted exclusively through oral tradition. This early literature falls into two main categories: lyric poetry, devoted to merriment and the joys of living; and epic poetry, consisting of fables, animal epics, allegorical narratives, religious legends, and historical tales.
