'WILL WE BE TO OURSELVES AS A MONUMENT GRABBED FROM THE COVERS OF CENTURIES?' TRACES OF EXTERMINATION EXPERIENCE IN KRZYSZTOF KAMIL BACZYNSKI'S POETRY. AN ATTEMPT AT COMPREHENSION
Languages of publication
The article is devoted to Krzysztof Kamil Baczynski's literary creativity. It is an attempt at discerning in his poems both the traces of Extermination experience, following and unifying them, and ultimately understanding their comprehensive meaning which they convey. The analysis of Baczynski's poetry was carried out chronologically, starting from interpretation of the 1940 texts, when the building of the 'typhus endangered territory' started, until the reading of text produced in the mid 1943, when the Jewish Uprising already failed. The reflection of the author of 'Conflagration Song' was based, among others, on the psychological context. The knowledge on the Holocaust mechanisms adopted from social psychology allows to describe in this optic Baczynski unique attitude to traumatic occurrences which he witnessed and participated in.
