Summary/Abstract: The monograph is devoted to the literary image of Lviv. It combines a new look at the borderline cultures, where the problems of cultural and historical memory and postmemory, in the melting pot of memories, reading and preserving memory, deideologization and dehierarchization of thinking, and the rehabilitation of what was concealed or forbidden are crucial. The monograph focuses on the selected Polish, Ukrainian and Russian twentieth and twenty-first century literary texts. Taken considerations are an attempt to capture general discourses of Lviv, creation of its myth/myths and to analyze how Polish, Ukrainian and Russian authors discover and perceive this unusual space. The publication also discusses how the problem of "strangeness" and/or "otherness" is reflected in literary texts and how the authors create an image of other nationalities.
