Summary/Abstract: The subject of the article is notes by Piotr Szewc entitled "Bez tytułu i daty", published in “Kwartalnik Artystyczny” in the column of varia entitled "Z powodu i bez powodu". The sketchbook privacy is marked by writer’s mental state, the sense of an obvious bond with the events of a special personal meaning, discretely including notes into the area of emotion reactions. The author , being aware of the gaps of a memoirist form makes an attempt to order himself and drafts thoughts in his non-fulfillment, as well as fills in intuitions of the events reconstructed after years that are intensively close to him. A reflection on the past, that, according to the author is worth remembering, because otherwise, it would get lost without taking care of a tiny detail memory sticks to. Notes by Piotr Szewc point to a thematic dominance of the last achievements of the author of "Zagłada". The novel works are avoided here in favour of poetic and para-textual searches.
