Languages of publication
The article aims to analyse assorted texts by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz in the context of postcolonial theory. The author analyses the language used by Witkacy to talk about Oriental Others in the letters written during his trip and immediately following its conclusion and in reportage. It also shows how the author, on the one hand, challenges the usurpations of Orientalistic discourse and, on the other, willingly repeats colonial gestures, yet engages in the latter only when these gestures have no real consequences.
