Antyportret w wersji literackiej
Literary version of the antiportrait
Languages of publication
In The Cinnamon Shops reader can find both echoes of the classic images of faces, referring to the tradition of physiognomy and tradition of portrait painting, as well as images of faces belonging to the species of antiportrait, scuffing the boundary between inside and outside. They can be treated as a treatments designed for breaking mimesis, as well as questioning the possibility of expression. Without the division on the interior and the exterior can not be said about extracting internal outside – what is after all the essence of expression. Sometimes treatments developed by Schulz can be perceived as a game of interpenetrating appearances, another time – as a sense of omnipresence of meaning.
