Abstract: The article discusses the issue of local identity in the creative work of writers. It focuses on the local identity of Fabijonas Neveravičius (1900–1981), born in a feudal family of Samogitia region (Žemaitija), by highlighting its relation to his feudal background. The article aims to reveal Neveravičius’ perception of his local identity and its expression in his creative work. In such a way, the uniqueness of his identity in the historical context is disclosed and reasons for it are provided. Neveravičius grew in a feudal environment which was greatly influenced by the Polish culture tradition. However, his family valued Lithuanian tradition as well, which caused him to identify with the Samogitians, rather than the Polish, by preserving his feudal background at the same time. It was feudal roots that determined the uniqueness of Neveravičius’ identity which is most vividly revealed in his literary work. In his historical novels “Blaškomos liepsnos” (“Flustered Flames”) (1936) and “Erškėčiai” (“Biars”) (1937), Neveravičius introduces a Lithuanian historical narrative alternative to the one prevalent during the interwar period. In the narratives about the history of Samogitia, the most important role is assigned to the Polishspeaking feudal families, whereas in regard of ethnology, Samogitian peasantry is left in the background. By presenting the culture of Samogitian feudal lords and emphasising the good they did to the region, Neveravičius also proposes an alternative, i.e. other than ethnolinguistic, understanding of the Samogitian identity based on the loyalty to the native land
