The drama of cognition in the "Palace" by Wiesław Myśliwski

Magdalena Dziugieł-Łaguna


Characteristic of the manor shown in the W. Myśliwski novel “Palace” corresponds to the climate of the prose by: S. Brzozowski, S. Zeromski, W. Gombrowicz. That manor is the cultural image of its decadence, accompanied by the inherent evil of human nature. Main character-narrator enters interior of the manor (as a result of the abandonment of the palace by the heir afraid of the upcoming war) and indeed the labyrinth of own soul to transform into Jakub-master. The process of transformation reveals a clear dichotomy, in the personality of the hero, concerning evaluation through the good and the evil deeds.
