Abstract: The article concentrates on the concept of body in the essay “The Roadside Dog” (1998) by Czesław Miłosz, the Nobel Prize winner, considering corporeal from the postructuralist perspective of deanthropologisation and subject decentration. Essayism is a special quality of contemporary culture. The union of philosophy, literature and science can be argued to be present here. “There is nothing beyond text” – this idea of Jacques Derrida is the fundament for the novel reflection of text. Essay is a convenient genre space for the competition of reality and relativity, for the introduction of text into life and vice versa. The space of text unites cultural, social, linguistic and mental features of a creator. Text strives to the achievement of two goals – the dialogue with the reader and the monologue of the author with himself and the search for the inner I. In the genre of essay, these relationships are directed to the self-revelation and the self-identification of a personality. The authorial I in this genre is treated as being located beyond the common, the norm, and the boundaries. The human “exits from oneself and arrives to oneself ”. Czeslaw Miłosz could not fail to avoid the issue of man. He concentrates on the integral features allowing to present the mankind as a single unit and the most various aspects of individual human’s existence. The postmodern aesthetics criticizes the traditional representation and focuses on the idea of the subject’s death. The subject of contemporary world cannot be identified to itSELF. It loses its metaphysical stability and can only be described through reflection, difference and self-expression. Its identity can change with every new perception of its own body, for it is the body that allows new forms of representation. The used strategy of text analysis is deconstruction.[...]
