Stachura spent the first eleven years of his life in France. The family lived in a large tenement house shared by a multilingual mix of emigrants; Stachura would later describe it in his first novel as "this great Tenement of Babel, where apart from the Poles, who called the tune, there was a mass of Greeks, Albanians, Armenians, Italians, Arabs, and other representatives of nations.
His brother Ryszard, eight years his senior, says that young Edward was courteous, caring, and likeable, but unusually stubborn: in school he had a habit of correcting his teachers if their ideas were at odds with those he got from other sources.
Originally Stachura planned a career in electrical engineering, and he also liked biology and geography, but his interests gradually shifted toward the visual arts and literature. During that time he published his first poems. He interrupted his studies at CUL twice, and after travelling around the country in and he finally transferred to the University of Warsaw , his move to the capital motivated primarily by a desire to facilitate the publication of his work.
Around that time, Stachura also began a type of journal in which he collected various notes, many of which he would later incorporate into his works. Like the first novel, the book began with notes in the journal starting in , and it was written partly in Mexico where Stachura studied in and on a twelve-month scholarship funded by the Mexican government.
The period during the writing and directly after the completion of the second novel was particularly difficult for Stachura. His marriage disintegrated, throwing him into fits of depression during which he contemplated suicide. Next year he spent a few months in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
In the next few years Stachura showed a gradual deepening of distancing himself from events and people, and of his perception of aversion and hostility in the actions of friends and relatives.
This transformation ultimately led to what is described by some as the mystical period in his life and writing, and by others as evidence of progressive mental illness. The book met with mixed reception. The next book, Fabula rasa, was to be his last. In April he suffered a mysterious train accident: he refused to step away from the railroad track along which he was walking, despite the fact that he saw an approaching train.
He suffered concussion and lost most of his right hand. He continued writing in the journal until just four days before his death. Z wypowiedzi rosproszonych Fabula Rasa.
