Miejsce natury – natura miejsca. Schulz i Goethe
The Place of Nature, the Nature of Place – Schulz and Goethe
Languages of publication
The main goal of the article is to present the parallels between Goethe’s idea of plant and animal morphologies presented in his works (i.a.:Vorarbeiten zur Morphologie) and poems (such as Metamorphosis of plants, Metamorphosis of animals or Epirrhema) and Schulz’s conception of matter formulated in The treaty on mannequins and other stories from the volume The Cinnamon Shops and the text stylized on the letter entitled To Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz. The authoress also analyzes a paradoxical way of description specific not only to the matter created by Schulz but also to Goethe’s nature shown by Georg Christoph Tobler in the aphoristic poem entitled Nature written after his many conversations with the author of Faust.
