Drohobycki matriarchat. Antropologiczne wątki „Sklepów cynamonowych” Brunona Schulza
The paper is an attempt to analyze Schulz’s fiction in terms of Johann Jakob Bachofen’s idea of matriarchy. Particular emphasis has been put on “August,” the opening story of Cinnamon Shops. In “August,” which begins his “spiritual autobiography,” Schulz created a world whose center is constituted by three women, portrayed as if they had been archaic deities. By the same token, the beginning of Schulz’s private mythology seems parallel to the archaic core of the socio religious order of Europe, i.e. matriarchy.
