The article discusses the function of the metaphor as one of the elements in narration constitution in short stories contained in the cycle 'The Walls of Hebron' by Andrzej Stasiuk. Starting point of the paper is the thesis that two types of narration are to be found in 'The Walls of Hebron': one stylizing the text to a secret language spoken in prisons (prison jargon), and another, for which the basis is a poetic metaphor. Specific examples of the metaphor in the two aforementioned types undergo a detailed analysis, however the emphasis lies on the latter. The paper also attempts to indicate the function a metaphor fulfills, namely a formal mechanism joining description to story-telling, and a means of giving the separate stories a mythical sense.
