Abstract

This article proposes a strategy for reading Bruno Schulz's prose as a peculiar modernist version of cosmogony, establishing an analytical connection between the dualistic images of Neoplatonic matter dominating Schulz's prose and a perspective of the child used by the narrator in his project. It demonstrates how maturing into childhood allows the narrator to defamiliarize the world of his hometown, and recreate the entire cosmos, a repetition of the originary creative act. This cosmogonic project echoes the process of the Coleridgean "Primary Imagination," thereby identifying one more item in Bruno Schulz's actual and imaginary library constructed by his readers and commentators. ﺗﻘﺘﺮﺡ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺍﺳﺘﺮﺍﺗﻴﺠﻴﺔ ﻟﻘﺮﺍﺀﺓ ﺃﻋﻤﺎﻝ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ ﺍﻟﭙﻮﻟﻨﺪﻱ ﺑﺮﻭﻧﻮ ﺷﻮﻟﺘﺰ ﺑﻮﺻﻔﻬﺎ ﻧﺴﺨﺔ ﻣﻌﺎﺻﺮﺓ ﻟﻨﺸﺄﺓ ﺍﻟﻜﻮﻥ، ﻣﻘﻴﻤﺔﹰ ﺭﺍﺑﻄﺔ ﺗﺤﻠﻴﻠﺔ ﺑﻴﻦ ﺍﻟﺼﻮﺭﺓ ﺍﻷﻓﻠﻮﻃﻴﻨﻴﺔ ﻟﻠﻤﺎﺩﺓ، ﻭﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﺗﺘﻐﻠﻐﻞ ﻓﻲ ﻛﺘﺎﺑﺎﺕ ﺷﻮﻟﺘﺰ، ﻭﻣﻨﻈﻮﺭ ﺍﻟﻄﻔﻞ ﺍﻟﺬﻱ ﻳﻄﺮﺣﻪ ﺍﻟﺮﺍﻭﻱ٠ ﻭﺗﻮﺿﺢ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺃﻥ ﺍﻟﻨﻀﻮﺝ ﻧﺤﻮ ﺍﻟﻄﻔﻮﻟﺔ ﻳﺴﻤﺢ ﻟﻠﺮﺍﻭﻱ ﺑﺘﻐﺮﻳﺐ ﻋﺎﻟﻢ ﻣﺪﻳﻨﺘﻪ ﻟﻴﻌﻴﺪ ﺗﺸﻜﻴﻞ ﺍﻟﻜﻮﻥ ﺑﺄﻛﻤﻠﻪ، ﻣﺜﻠﻤﺎ ﻫﻮ ﺍﻟﺤﺎﻝ ﻓﻲ ﻋﻤﻠﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﺨﻠﻖ ﺍﻷﻭﻟﻰ٠ ﻭﺗﻌﻜﺲ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻌﻤﻠﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﻨﺸﺄﻭﻳﺔ ﺻﺪﻯ ﻣﻔﻬﻮﻡ ﻛﻮﻟﻴﺮﺩﺝ ﻋﻦ ﺍﻟﻤﺨﻴﻠﺔ ﺍﻷﻭﻟﻴﺔ، ﻣﺤﺪﺩﺓﹰ ﻋﻨﺼﺮﺍﹰ ﺁﺧﺮ ﻓﻲ ﻛﺘﺎﺑﺎﺕ ﺷﻮﻟﺘﺰ ﺍﻟﻮﺍﻗﻌﻴﺔ ﻭﺍﻟﻤﺘﺨﻴﻠﺔ ﺑﺎﻟﻨﺴﺒﺔ ﻟﻘﺎﺭﺋﻴﻪ ﻭﻧﻘّﺎﺩﻩ٠
