Summary/Abstract: In this article Śmieja suggests that Jerzy Andrzejewski’s male-centred imagination is rooted in the writer’s homoerotic desire. By imagining relationships between men that take place outside of the Oedipal model, Andrzejewski’s works threaten both the social order and the coherence of the subject himself. In order to stabilize his male-centred vision on a textual level, Śmieja argues, Andrzejewski draws on the model developed by Witold Gombrowicz, while on a biographical level it is Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński who fulfils this stabilizing function.
