The paper focuses on the relationship between Schulz and Witkacy. According to Jerzy Ficowski, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz “was the first great enthusiast of Schulz’s fiction.” Conducting an in-depth interview with Schulz and publishing a critical essay on his poetics, Witkacy turns out to be a precursor-reader who anticipated the writer’s future fame. How did Witkacy read Schulz’s Cinnamon Shops and what did the beginning of the two authors’ friendship look like? Here, a short poem, To Schulz, written by Witkiewicz on December 31, 1934 in reference to an illustration from The Booke of Idolatry, is a pretext to consider the fascination with boundary situations, which was common to both writers.
