Abstract: In this article the author analyses Marius Katiliškis’s first book, The Return of an Old Soldier, which was found and published after the writer’s death, and reveals some models of main character and plot construction common to this and the same writer’s next works. Appeal to the theory of self-identity makes it easier to see a problem that Katiliškis had difficulty in overcoming, namely, that of showing a male character in action, of his finding a stable place in society. Instead of exhibiting determination and activity, Katiliškis’s male character keeps himself out of society, avoids relationships with women, and tries to live in nature, where he feels himself safe. This for some reason immature psychological state of the main hero has its origins in the Lithuanian literary tradition down from the romanticism and sentimentalism of the beginning of the 19th century.
