Summary/Abstract: This article is a short overview of the creative works of both Polish and French authors, which shows the issue of shaping identity in the post-war reality. The two separated, completely different experience seem to be so remote and separated by the facts that it could be impossible to make them similar. However, the poetic vision of war experience, striving for surviving in the suddenly “overturned” world, with changed values, given á l’envers seem to make both authors more similar.The subject of the analysis is not only the world of values constructed by both authors but also the image of reality, of space, created by and through language. Such method of creating the images by observing and controlling, serves “softening” the world, the objects and proving the right to human existence in a ruined post-war reality. Somatic aspect of human beings plays here an important role, being a kind of key to understanding the ontological secret of human body. All those features with the emotional “burden” of the words, which seems to be important for both authors, give a proof of similarity of the poetics of both artists.
