Did Isaac Bashevis Singer know the works of Polish avant-garde masters, particularly of those of Jewish descent? Singer himself would deny, here and there, although he did acridly allude to Tuwim or Jasienski in some of his writings. The authoress' present attempt is to prove that I. B. Singer knew not only the 'Skamander group' members' output but also Polish futurists' works. He has also built up on Aleksander Wat's 'Bezrobotny Lucyfer' (Lucifer Unemployed), the Polish literary hit of 1920s, learning on it the techniques of nonsense and pastiche. In specific, she has compared two novels by Wat: 'Bezrobotny Lucyfer' and 'Zyd wieczny tulacz' (Jew the Eternal Wanderer) against 'The Last Demon' and 'Pope Zejdl', the two short stories by Singer.
