THE MONSTROUS DOUBLE. THE TAILORS’ DUMMIES OF BRUNO SCHULZ
MetadataShow full item record
The present paper examines Bruno Schulz’s short story “Treatise on Tailors’ Dummies or The Second Book of Genesis” by mapping out the broader tradition of writings concerning automata with initial focus being on the romantics and especially E. T. A. Hoffmann. Thus, there is sufficient ground for the assumption that Bruno Schultz can be considered representative of the weird fiction subgenre of fantastic literature, a prime example of that being the close thematic relationship of the Polish author’s writings with those of the American writer H. P. Lovecraft.
