It has already been indicated that Bruno Schulz's work has its root in the cultural borderland and that it undertakes the subject of the relation between the centre and the periphery. However, it has never been compared with the Polish myth of 'Kresy', in which these issues are equally important. Schulz's prose has been read as a literature lacking any distinct references to ethnic or national issues, since the mimesis of realistic representation is not found here. What occurs is the mimesis of process - imitating general cultural mechanisms, like the functioning of the centre/periphery opposition. According to the article's thesis, in Schulz's writing occurs a deconstruction of the indicated opposition: it is imitated, negated, and finally, ironically problematized. This deconstruction has been described using postcolonial categories of hybridization, mimicry and palimpsesticism.
