„Dziennik, nie dziennik. Takie tam”. O malych narracjach Macieja Malickiego
“A DIARY OR NOT A DIARY, OR STUFF.” SHORT NARRATIVE FORMS IN MACIEJ MALICKI’S WRITING
Languages of publication
The paper is devoted to short narrative forms in Maciej Malicki’s literary creativity. The author focuses here on trans-genre shifts between a diary, a story, a novel, a poem, a letter, a fairytale etc., as well as on more general question of blurred borderlines between literary fiction and autobiographical document. How does Malicki play with conventions of autobiographical writing and how does he transgress them? What seems to be the most accurate concept for such writing practice is Serge Doubrovski’s autofiction. According to Przemyslaw Czaplinski, what is typical of late modernism Polish prose is generic, narrative and stylistic diversity and hybridity, as well as indeterminate (non)fictional status. Of paramount importance here is total revaluation of early modernist narrative pattern and a crisis of the Grand Narrative. The article is an attempt to show how this revaluation works in Malicki’s short autofictional texts.
