Editorial Reviews

Review

"These essays shed additional light on Schulz's body of work, provide a productive means of expanding on older themes, and open up a breadth of new questions and possible roads of academic inquiry. In sum, this volume forms a Schulzology compendium that sets a new standard in any language for the study of this enigmatic author." - Ewa Wampuszyc, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in: Slavic and East European Journal, 57.2 (2013), pp. 324-6 "[...] there is an unusually high percentage of quality essays with innovative approaches [...]. We should expect that the collected essays in this volume will set the standard for Schulz studies in English. We can also hope that it will have an impact on the Polish-language sphere." - Jessie Labov, The Ohio State University, in: The Russian Review 71.3, June 2012, pp. 509-10@

"Any contexts used to examine the writing, and in this anthology, including the artwork of Bruno Schulz must introduce Galicia, a historical badland where the city Schulz put on the map of the literary world, Drohobych, exists without any of his books in the bookstores. Oksana Weretiuk reports in her contribution, "The Ukrainian Reception of Bruno Schulz's Writings: Paradox or Norm?" that even the plaque marking a location on its city street where Schulz was shot by a German Nazi officer in 1942 had been stolen. At the time, the town near Lviv in Western Ukraine was part of occupied Poland. The largest ethnic group at the end of the interwar period in 1939 was Jewish, near 40%, followed by Poles at 33%, and finally Ukrainians at 26%. The conflicts between Ukrainian partisan groups active during Nazi occupation with Poles, encouraged with a promise of national independence, exceeded by far any plans for annihilation Nazis had for Jews in Galicia at the time of Schulz's murder. By 1959, Ukrainians constituted 70% of the city's population distinct from Russians at 22%. Poles were at 3% and Jews at 2%. The hated Polish occupiers were slaughtered in ethnic cleansing raids by Ukrainian partisans with as much ferocity as the Nazis dispatched Galicia's Jews. Schulz's early place as a beloved Polish writer was not mirrored in Ukraine until most recently. Hers is my favorite article in the collection because it provides the most insight into the geography of Schulz's avant-gardism, though universal in a literary sense, so that any claims for his gestalt will find its firm foothold in that Ukrainian land occupied by Poland's second republic (Rzeczpospolita Polska), during the interwar years between 1918 and 1939."
