The sketch concerns two novels dated 1998. Andrzej Falkiewicz's novel 'Ledwie mrok' proves to be interesting in terms of its aesthetics and problems, whilst being a somewhat late-date recapitulation of experiences of modern prose. The author outlines a transgressive project of expressing those aspects of corporeality which are hardly graspable in the language, whilst at the same time gathering arguments testifying to a utopian nature of any such project. In turn, Adam Ubertowski, a representative of a much younger generation of authors, uses in his 'Szkice do obrazu batalistycznego', in a pastiche mode, certain cultural and literary matrices (well-established models of manliness, initiation pattern, etc.) along with elements of a modern literary code, to place a 'simulac' - i.e. intimacy seen in terms of a copy of one's self, relating to repetition; an intimacy that is multiplied and reproduced as a narrative phantasm - precisely where modernism situated the individual's source experience.
