Miłosz’s “World” Apart. Father – Mother – Krypt

Summary/Abstract: The paper considers the problem of Czesław Miłosz’s text reading by referring to the category of psychoanalysis. It traces the “splits” in the text, that is those places which reveal the symptoms of war trauma suppression. An attempt is made to show relationship of those places with the texts written earlier and later than “World (Świat)” to emphasise the weight of trauma in Miłosz’s poetry and prose. The above considerations lead to recognize Miłosz’s text as krypt (in Jacques Derrida’s view).
