Summary/Abstract: The main goal of the article is to demonstrate how Bruno Schulz’s biographical experience has become a starting point for a revision of the structures of meaning in his fiction. Historical shocks let Schulz understand the variability of values in the world and realize the instability of the powers that ruled it. The article focuses on the correlation among categories such as peripherality, history, and interculturality in Schulz’s “Spring” and narrative points of view in the story. The author shows how historical, individual, fantastic,intercultural, and biological (micro- and macrocosmic) perspectives coexist inthe text.
