FROM ABOVE MISS HELENA'S MANOR TO AT THE FRONT OF THE POET'S HOUSE. THE CATEGORY OF NARRATION AND THE AUTHOR'S PRESENCE IN KONWICKI'S 'LAVA' AND 'BOHIN MANOR') (Polish title below)
Languages of publication
(Polish title: Znad dworu panny Heleny przed dom Poety. Kategoria narracji a obecnosc autora w 'Lawie' oraz 'Bohini' Konwickiego). The text shows how similar is the narration of 'Lava', Konwicki's film adaptation of Mickiewicz's 'Forefathers' Eve', to the narration of Bohin Manor, a novel which was written just before 'Lava', and how similar is the autobiographic category in these two works (both of them are parabolas), but yet how different is the author's presence in them. In 'Bohin Manor', the narrator of the story is identified straightforwardly with Konwicki's 'I', as a figure of syllepsis (Ryszard Nycz's term for such narrator); in Lava, the Poet, who is the narrator in the film, is presented simultaneously as both Mickiewicz and Konwicki.
