Despite longing for his childhood sweetheart Agnes, the miner’s son Alois immerses himself in Berlin’s underworld after the end of World War I, experiencing the turmoil of the revolution and finally the unrest in Upper Silesia. »Szczepan Twardoch stages a great play with intertextual references in ›Pokora‹. Despite hefty surface stimuli, the novel unfolds considerable depth« [DLF Kultur].
