Muse & Messiah is the first full comparative study of the Polish-Jewish writer and artist Bruno Schulz (1892-1942), based on the latest materials, including new interviews with ex-students and biographers, Polish texts, plus all worldwide English studies and influenced works. Rare photographs, detailed chronology, and recent images are included for comparison. Schulz's life and themes are examined with detailed Polish and European influences. New, first-hand corrected information about his home region adds a new dimension to his creative world within contemporary Polish-Jewish tensions. Controversial international debates about his last works are brought up to date in a work that seeks to place his poetic-artistic achievement more centrally to highlight an original, modernist and yet universal vision.
