Miron Białoszewski: Radical Quest Beyond Dualisms


Artur Placzkiewicz

Miron Białoszewski: Radical Quest Beyond Dualisms is an innovative and challenging work of literary scholarship that examines Białoszewski’s artistic praxis as a certain philosophical proposition. It differs from the earlier critical approaches to the writings of this writer in as much as it attempts to examine his mature poetry from a non-dualistic perspective. The study demonstrates in detail how Białoszewski’s radical approach to poetry evolves into a consistent life-writing and life-philosophy (life-writing-philosophy). The poet disregards binary oppositions and he approaches life and reality without any universal method. In the poet’s mature poetry, the context is identified as life and not as reality, and Białoszewski’s writing is described as his life project which is not searching but rather researching, since it has no pre-established goal to reach except for being continued.
