The article attempts at interpreting the Rev. Janusz-Stanislaw Pasierb's poem 'Écorché', using some categories applied in researching into contemporary 'minority discourses'. The primary existential experience being unveiled by the poem in question is experience of otherness and oppression. However, there is an aura of non-determinability rising over that text. We do not know whether the poem is a response to an actual and real oppression or perhaps the oppressive community is a projection of its character, tormented with a sense of estrangement, perhaps also of a guilt. Nor the name of the phobia described in that piece is known to us. Is this about anticlericalism? Seemingly, this particular lyric does not allow for such a far-fetched concretisation. Its message is generalised, and seems to encompass various forms of violence. The existing attempted readings of 'Écorché' - tending to sacralise or even 'Christ-ise' the poem's main character - seem to have been instances of interpretative abuse.
