The author raises the subject of the Ukrainian puppet theatre called the Pathless Tract, indicating controversies around the first publication on the Tract by Erazm Izopolski. He refers to various opinions of theatre historians and researchers of folklore on Izopolski's work - both positive and critical about the theses presented by the Polish ethnographer. He also points to the fact that there is scarce information about his life and work in Polish and Ukrainian encyclopedic sources.
