Summary/Abstract: This article concerns a novel by Andrzej Bursa entitled Killing Auntie. The authordiscusses the game motif – rendered in all sorts of ways in Bursa’s works – by pointing toelements of the sender-receiver strategy employed by the writer at each level (especiallythe intra-textual one). The analysis of the work is, among other things, inscribed into acontext of Gombrowicz-like understanding of form, as well as into a context of polemicswith the schematism of socialist realism or literature dealing with atrocities of theWorld War II.
