Rozpustny Wokulski – problemów ciąg dalszy
Rakish Wokulski – the ongoing problems
Languages of publication
The article entitled "Rakish Wokulski – the ongoing problems" takes up the problem of the meaning of erotic motifs in "The Doll" by Bolesław Prus, most of all – their links to the contemporary theories of neurosis. Unlike the existing studies of the problem that draw from neo-freudian theories, the article uses mostly classic Sigmund Freud’s concepts especially 'psychic impotence' and 'debasement in the sphere of love'. From this perspective "The Doll’s" protagonists, especially Wokulski, seem to fall ill into a neurosis as a result of supressing instincts.
