Abstract: Andrzej Busza’s writing unquestionably belongs to one of the strangest phenomena of contemporary Polish literature. This is due not only to the originality and distinctiveness of his universalis-tic worldview, his easily recognizable poetic diction, or the way he structures his arguments, but also owing to his oddity as a writer, who is bilingual and situated culturally between at least two tradi-tions (the notion of “inbetweenness” fits his case perfectly); as well as his complicated biography, involving several variants and stages of dislocation and exilic experience. Poet, prose writer, translator, critic, historian of English literature, specializing in the life and works of Joseph Conrad – he remains one of the last surviving and, at the same time, one of the more intriguing, writers of the post- - 1939 emigration.
