Published by: Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Śląskiego
Keywords: Conrad; The Tale; beliefs; doubt; agency; diegetic levels of narrative; dramatic situation in narrative
Summary/Abstract: Jacek Mydla examines The Tale by paying special attention to the story’s structure and to the situation – described as a dramatic one – in which the narration is being conducted. The question is raised: Does The Tale contain suggestions which allow the characters and the readers to abandon skepticism, an attitude which seems to be the conclusion of the story?
