Mitomani (nie)rzeczywistości. Bruno Schulz i Max Blecher – próba porównania
The author takes into consideration themes that are common in the work of two Central European writers: Bruno Schulz and Max Blecher. The list of related topics includes the mythology of illness and death, a strong emphasis on the body/flesh, similar idiom, comparable concepts of “ecstatic identity,” the philosophy of representation based upon the artificiality of existence, masochism, irony, oneirism, common “spaces of myth,” and geopoetics. The main aim of the article is to place the writing of Schulz and Blecher in the context of Central European modernism and describe the work of these writers in terms of the so-called “critical modernity” (a term coined by Michał Paweł Markowski).
