Summary/Abstract: The article is the interpretation of two Bruno Schulz’s stories: Visitation and Birds. The key context for this reading is matriarchate theory by Johann Jakob Bachofen. In the Schulz’s text the patriarchate established by the father is a secondary system to the dominating narrative of matriarchal order identified by Adela. The father is a lonely hero in this spin, overpowered by a mission called by Schulz as “metaphysical“.
