Languages of publication
In modern literature appears often motif of „two times two does not make four“ which is based on Dostoyevsky’s Notes from the Underground. Polish decadent writer Stanisław Prybyszewski added to this absurd equation the result: two times two does make four but always more than the original product. This absurd equation in the modern narrative manifests itself as maelstrom of reality, reminiscent of Deleuze’s plane of immanence. Modern narrative creates many planes, which resembles a swarm swarming, when each part refers at the same time to another plane of reality. Through this absurd equation we can understand also Deleuze’s terme becoming. This absurd equation can be perceived as a metaphor of modern reality and contemporary narrative.
