Bruno Schulz: New Documents and Interpretations
Peter Lang, 1999 - Literary Criticism - 217 pages
Bruno Schulz (1892-1942) has long been recognized, internationally and by leading American writers and critics, as a major twentieth-century author of fiction. This volume includes Schulz's newly discovered letters and two short theoretical essays hitherto not translated into English. The volume also contains an interview by Jerzy Ficowski, the foremost scholar on Schulz, indefatigable in searching for documents linked to Schulz. The second half of the volume includes original interpretative essays, and the editor, Czeslaw Prokopczyk, presents his approach to Schulz's fiction in terms of myth.
