This never before published article was presented by Jan Blonski in December 1949, during the conference of young Polish literary scholars. Originally it was a part of a larger paper presented together with Kazimierz Puzyna's and Ludwik Flaszen's remarks on S. I. Witkiewicz and B. Schulz. The tatty typescript of Blonski's paper, marked with author's comments, was found in his archive and edited by Marian Zaczynski. Blonski's article marks the beginning of his years-long investigations into Gombrowicz's work.
