Summary/Abstract: The article offers a short analysis and an interpretation of Adam Wiśniewski-Snerg’s most famous novel, The Robot. In the first part of her sketch, the authorpresents an insight into the reception of the Wiśniewski-Snerg’s 1973 spectaculardebut, which Robert Klementowski elevated to the rank of “a significant event of theearly 1970s” a few years later. Even though at the time, The Robot would be regardedas a work on par with Lem’s novels, it soon became forgotten. The second part ofthe article aims to re-kindle reflection upon the novel by offering an interpretationof The Robot as an allegory of human fate.
