Ort der Vermittlung, Ort der Zerstörung: zur Bedeutung der Grenze in Andrzej Stasiuks Theatertexten Noc ["Die Nacht"] und Czekając na Turka ["Warten auf den Türken"]

Eliza Szymańska


Within the last fifty years the phenomenon of the border has been scholarly described many times. In scientific works one can find many phrases like ‘crossing borders’, ‘arranging borders’, ‘perceiving borders’ or ‘experiencing borders’, which indicate dealing with the notion of borders in a metaphorical sense. Yet literary research rarely refers to the meaning of real topographical (not metaphorical) borders in literary texts. In this article the author makes an attempt to answer the question of the meaning of borders and their function in the plays ‘Night’ (Noc) and ‘Waiting for a Turk’ (Czekając na Turka) by Andrzej Stasiuk. The notion of theoretical deliberation by Sigrun Anselm is the starting point for this discussion. She presents two basic functions of the border: it can be a place of mediation (Ort der Vermittlung) or a place of destruction (Ort der Zerstörung).
