Translated title of the contribution: Bronisław "Zrogowski" KamińSki Durocher, OR The Man With A Thousand Faces

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This lengthy postface to the third volume of the Collected Works of the Franco-Polish Jewish poet Bruno Durocher, gives a detailed analysis of the entirety of his extensive literary production, from his first writings published in Polish at the end of the 1930s to his final poetry written shortly before his death in 1995. The study covers the essential and problematic questions of identity raised by Durocher’s poetry, fiction, theatre and essays, before dividing his work into what can be seen as a diptych: on the left panel stand violence, war, misery, suffering, injustice, bestiality, concupiscence, genocide, the Shoah, a morally and spiritually bankrupt Western civilization; on the right panel there is the spiritual, the religious, the desire for the infinite, the quest for the absolute, love, Judaism, Jewish mysticism, and Israel.
