Szpargał, artefakt, fantazmat. Mapa w „Ulicy Krokodyli”
The paper focuses on the map which is a motif that organizes a large part or even the whole of “The Street of Crocodiles,” a short story by Bruno Schulz. It is an analysis of a series of transformations of a map into an etching, a photo, an architectural drawing, and an icon, as well as the changes of its focalization and coloring. Inspirations have been drawn from critical cartography, the Deleuzian idea of the fold, studies by Svetlana Alpers and Georges Didi-Hubermana, Freudian psychoanalysis and its continuation by Torok and Abraham, and the theories of melancholy.
