Summary/Abstract: The text concerns one of the basic motives in works by Miron Białoszewski, the motive of illness. The author makes "Zawał" and fragments of journal notes where this cartographic dysfunction found itself in the centre of considerations. An autobiographic nature of Białoszewski’s works allows for interpreting texts, but, at the same time, noticing an important life experience of the author of "Tajny dziennik" in them. The subject of interest here is strategies allowing for familiarizing the process of getting ill and being in a hospital depriving of intimacy. The most important include a unique penetration and meticulousness of the description of a new experience, theatralization of events and a hospital writing as the activity most personal and most private.
