Porządek kalendarza, porządek wyobrażenia. W stronę biogeografii Schulza
The paper proposes an approach to Schulz’s life in terms of biogeography. The author criticizes the stereotype of Schulz’s biography as that of a settled, provincial man who hardly ever left his hometown, and when he did, he suffered from anxiety and the sense of failure. That stereotype was created by Jerzy Ficowski, who brought into being the figure of Schulz as a weak, shy, hypersensitive, and anxious artist, who in his art found shelter from everyday reality. The paper presents some aspects of Ficowski’s approach to Schulz’s spatial experience (decontextualization, negligence of social life and the urban experience) to show how a critique of that approach may lead to a new, biogeographical version of the writer’s life.
