Summary/Abstract: The status of “home” as a basic archetype and topos attracts the attention of researchers who represent different branches of science. This article deals with the topos of home based on an example of the novel with the same title by Belarusian writer Adam Globus. It is emphasized that through the topos of home such oppositions as “countryman vs stranger”, “blood-related vs not blood-related” are actualized. The presence of an ekphrasis as an individual manner of Adam Globus’ writing is highlighted.
