Edelman: opowiadanie, dyskurs swiadomosci i konflikt
EDELMAN: SHORT STORY, CONSCIOUSNESS DISCOURSE AND CONFLICT
Languages of publication
The article is a description of the role of the story in Marek Edelman’s accounts about the past time of occupation. In the literary genres typology his statements fringe upon autobiography and oral story, whilst in the perspective of the history of events Edelman in his accounts plays the role of a witness of historical events, a source of knowledge about the past and at the same time its interpreter. This issue differs, among others, the situations of narration on past events in Edelman’s stories from those produced by professional historians. The case of Edelman, who his description of events usually develops in the situations of dialogues (interview, public speech) with people who lack such experience, becomes a convenient point for formulating a number of theses about consciousness conflict seen as a mechanism co-creating the discourse of culture.
