Literature of absence and the experience of evil ("Container" by Marek Bieńczyk, "Is not" by Mariusz Szczygieł, and "Things I didn't throw out" by Marcin Wicha)
AbstractThe article discusses the way in which literature can address evil, understood as the experience of absence and loss. The problem concerns artistic writing in general, as was stressed by Maurice Blanchot; but it also appears particularly in a collection of texts about absence, such as Container by Marek Bieńczyk, Is Not by Mariusz Szczygieł, and Things I Didn’t Throw Out by Marcin Wicha. At the same time, they are an attempt to fill the void through literary restitution of that which is lost.
