EN
This essay proposes a reading of Zofia Nalkowska's 'Dzienniki' (Diaries), focusing on moments where the authoress signals her incapacity to write, in connection with appearance in her biography of certain difficult painful experiences; of traumatic experiences which not infrequently get elaborated in the narrative course only some time afterwards. Those moments of 'non-writing' are essential elements in the shaping of an autobiographic story and prove that silence-keeping is an indispensable part of the subject's self-narration.
