The article provides an overview on publications that tackle the history of literature of Pomerania, concentrating on the book by Roswitha Wisniewski, published in German in 2013. Despite a relatively long tradition a culture of reading and writing and a massive number of authors who have been active in Pomerania not only in the 20th century, a history of regional literature has not yet been captured and described in its entirety. The publication by Roswitha Wisniewski offers the very first thoroughly edited and relatively lengthy review of the development of literature in Pomerania from its beginnings until today. The few notes on aspects that leave a little to be desired do not change the comprehensive importance of the book.
