Abstract: Jan Brzechwa’s fairy tale panoptic is an individual “fiction”, situated between the classic magic fairy tale and the subjective imagination of the author. The whole fairy tale toolkit – the characters and the multiple roles in which they are incarnated, the magical means, and the other fairy tales incorporated into the body of the central fairy tale narrative serve spatial dislocations and mutual transfusions intended to “immortalize” the human and the humanity through the good.

Keywords: Jan Brzechwa, magic fairy tale, myth, structure, space, initiation, transformation, transcendence, emotion, ethics
