Summary/Abstract: Jacek Hugo-Bader is an author of three reportage books attempting to make a literary description of modern Russia. His writing evolves – from a classical reportage to a search of a “more comprehensive form” transcending the schemes of travel reportage prose in which the cognitive function is predominant. The primary goal of his travel is a search for authenticity, a desire to experience the “real” Russian reality, but also to find a proper method of literary description of the experienced world. Due to this search, the reporter’s experience of writing about Russia became increasingly personal with each book, which is realized in the text through increasingly clearer revealing of autobiographic elements. In the works of the author of Biała gorączka, one can notice slowness and uncertainty of his vision of the world; not a wide perspective but a fragmentary and detailed observation. Thanks to this perspective, one can advance a thesis that the author’s creative assumption is continuous balancing between showing Russia as exotic and as close and familiar.
