[Depiction of violence in the contemporary Polish horror fiction]

The construction of violent scenes is closely connected with the reader's readiness to imagine them in the familiar contexts of reality, in which way they trigger specific associations resulting from the deeply rooted interpretation of particular signs. The violent scenes in horror fiction chiefly serve to depict the fictional world in such a way that it should seem mysterious, uncontrollable, and dangerous. Thus, the genre convention quite strictly defines the character and method of depiction
