Summary/Abstract: The following article examines the image of nature, reflected in parts of Matvey Valev's Brazilian prose, and focuses on the walking man's gaze. Two main manifestations of nature are observed: „wild nature“, characterized by abundance and dominance; and „tamed nature“, in which dominance had been taken away by man. The alienation of Valev's emigrant characters is tied to the broken connection between the character of the modern man and nature.
