Grabiński bajkopisarzem? Czyli kilka słów o "Ciuciubabce"
Grabinski - fabulist? A couple of words about Blind Man's Bluff
Languages of publication
The paper is an attempt to read the short novel by Stefan Grabinski entitled: The Blind Man's Bluff, as a particular literary genre. Key of the game called blind man's bluff lies in getting one or more participants eyes closed or covered; this game therefore can be taken as a metaphor of such a writing activity that is disconnected from reality, or fixed on individual imaginations and fantasies. The main character of the short novel, named Grześ Lutomski, is successively fading away from reality to a complete isolation, gradually limiting himself to the world of his subjective projections. As an example we can find Grzes entertaining himself in an empty room which is however full of his own fantasies. This type of creative activity does not let voices from the outside in, namely -from the real world, it's closed and inclusive. According to Grabinski this particular type of writing is too self-centered and therefore unfruitful and unsuccesful.
