Holy Matter. On Collecting and Gathering in the Writings of Kornel Filipowicz.
Subject(s): Literary Texts
Published by: Instytut Badań Literackich Polskiej Akademii Nauk
Keywords: Kornel Filipowicz; Anthropology; Holocaust; Collections
Summary/Abstract: This article gathers reflections from the intersection of three fields: anthropology of the object, Holocaust studies and studies of the cultural status of collecting and gathering (among others of M. Sommer, B. Latour, K. Pomian, B. Shallcross, M.P. Markowski). Kornel Filipowicz’s prose serves here as a case study within this methodological context. His inclination to accumulate and fascination with material objects are not only visible in his themes or imagery, but they also influence the language and determine the principle of the literary composition.
