Zwycięski Schulz w koronie
Labirynty Brunona Schulza is an attempt to look at the writer’s output through the prism of occult knowledge, particularly the works of Aleister Crowley. Adam Wosiak searches in Schulz’s fiction for the images of a world that is degraded and based on opposites, to compare them with similar pictures drawn from ancient myths, the Internet, and esoteric knowledge. The reviewer considers such an attempt as an natural stage in Schulz’s reception. Writers who, like the author of Cinnamon Shops, give the reader much interpretive liberty sooner or later must be interpreted in strange and extravagant ways. Labirynty is not only a superficial, but also a surprisingly arbitrary reading of Schulz. The text, illustrations, and bibliography make a collage of accidental elements which add little or nothing to the understanding of Schulz’s fiction.
