Abstract: The article aims to draw possible parallels between the ideas of one of the outstanding deconstruction theorists, Paul de Man, who verifies text harmony by algebraically disjointing it, and an outstanding figure among the creators of the twentieth century, Czeslaw Milosz, whose text demonstrates perfect synthesis. Paul de Man actualizes the paradox of deconstruction that truth can only be expressed by language; however, this attempt is doomed. Deconstruction is oriented towards language, pluralism of meanings and textual polyphony. The reflection of Czeslaw Milosz’s fiction reveals a special concept which may be considered to be constituted of separate essays and notes, as revealed in his last book The Roadside Dog (1998). Milosz was one of the first to conceive the crisis of the philosophical and literary consciousness of his age, which is expressed as the difference between speech and word in life. The major form of the idea is philosophically, politically, publicistically and historically oriented essayism. His works reflect essay-based contemplation and can be valued as a sample of synthetic mind. The combination of different codes, images and tropes creates an uncommon and marginal stylistics. The method of letters based on the effect of the author’s presence and on the tangibility of the presentation makes a magic impact. Contemporary understanding of the text, comprising the ideas of deconstruction theorists as well as real practice of fictional text creators, leads to the idea that a contemporary literary work resists any attempts to confine it within the limits of traditional literary theory. Only perception of a special relationship between text and language, signifiers and signified, imagination and reality, can bring us closer to the concept of a creative work
