Abstract: The author of the paper, following Frank Kujawiński and Tomasz Tabako, offers a reading of Karpowicz’s texts, positing in this instance that the pivot of the creative imagination is the category of space — especially germane to American culture. While space — centerless like a desert, in constant movement, limitless, and above all prehuman — establishes the hermeneutic context for Karpowicz’s project; the project itself involves a conceptual escape (conceived as inhuman in its essence) from a place on earth, a “place in language”, and a place in existence. His conception appears to be directed against the common-sense logic of localization and, as Karpowicz himself suggests, can be related to contemporary topological theory. An individual poem (as well as a longer poetic work, based on symmetrical or paralactic structures) manifests itself in this context as a holistically conceived verbal mass, out of which by means of constant transformations the poet seeks to bring to “the surface” of the text ever new forms, ever new narratives. Kokoszka points to the possibility of reading Karpowicz’s “topology of the word” as an attempt to create a dynamic whole whose every element seems to have the potential of entering the represented world. Hence, the individual words of the poems do not have their own stable meaning, or “place”— just next to what has been expressed, there always appears what is optional.
