Summary/Abstract: The ”crypt” is aconcept introduced in the 1960s into psychoanalysis by N. Abraham and M. Torok, and ad- ditionally discussed by J. Derrida. It radically complica- tes the traditional ”consciounsess-subconcsiousness” topos since it is not yet another metaphor of the ordi- nary unconsciousness but its ”artificial” variant, which linguistically resists the efforts of the analyst The au- thor first proposes to treat the psychoanalytical process, striving towards disclosing the unconscious contents of the symbol, as aworking model for all sorts of interpre- tations of the text/narrative image.. Next he ponders on the manner in which this model becomes complica- ted when one takes into account the category of the ”crypt” as well as other related conceptions borrowed from the Abraham and Torok theory and Derrida (in- trojection, incorporation, phantom, haunting).
