Summary/Abstract: Władysław Panas’s essay is an exceptional attempt at finding latent mechanisms ruling the critical moments in the life of Bruno Schulz. Panas’s considerations lead from giving a Christian name to a young Jewish child by his parents, until his death in conditions different from the ones one could expect. The life of the poet from Drohobycz constitutes one mysterious plot in Panas’s tale, that after Emanuel Lévinas he wants to call „the intrigue of infinity”. The plot does not stop with the writer’s tragic death, but in a strange way it goes on also later, in everything that happens with the memory of the man and his work.
