The Prisoner of Myth
This chapter describes the life and works of Polish writer Bruno Schulz. Schulz was the author of two slim volumes of dreamlike prose that have been hailed as one of the most original achievements of Polish literature in the twentieth century. He is described as a profoundly unhappy man, whose most acute despondency seemed to have coincided with the beginning of his literary career and the praise with which his work was greeted by most prominent literary voices of his day. He may have become a victim of his own imagination, which trapped him in an invented world that was beginning to lose its magic.
