Powieść (A Novel) survives today only in a fragmented form, and it was first published in a monumental work devoted to Strzemiński's oeuvre in 2012, Powidoki Życia. Władysław Strzemiński i prawa dla sztuki. Most likely, A Novel was created towards the end of the 1940s and it describes the changing times and the way that a sense of national identity changed from the late 19th century up to the Second World War. It stretched from an expanding capitalism and the industrial revolution through to the offense of humanity brought by fascism.
