BETWEEN HISTORY AND RELIGION. CHANGE AS A NARRATIVE FIGURE OF THE FORMATION TALE IN THE WRITING OF JÓZEF CZAPSKI

 

The article is an attempt to analyse the memoir novel by Józef Czapski concerning the years from 1914 to 1932 as a narration based on an outline of an ailment as a moment of change and passage. Examining four narrative situations using a wide biographical and historical context—the Tolstoy shift, and the beginning of the February Revolution, meeting Dmitry Merezhkovsky and in consequence reading Brzozowski’s work, Czapski discovering Proust and Corot and the closing chapters of The Inhuman Lands together with a last glimpse of soviet Russia—are being regarded as phases of shaping the writer’s social, national, sexual and artist identity. The theoretical framework is marked by the assumptions of Paul Ricoeur’s narrative anthropology.
