In 1951 Maria Kuncewiczowa entered into contact with the editorial staff of 'Kultura' monthly suggesting the publishing of her new recent novel 'The Forester'. Jerzy Giedroyc, its editor, willingly accepted the offer but their cooperation failed to follow, despite the fact that the role and function of emigration represented by the Paris circle was undoubtedly closer to Kuncewiczowa than to that of Poles in London, where the writer lived after the WW II. The article attempts to explain the reasons of Kuncewiczowa's estrangement from the group of 'Kultura' based mostly on Kuncewiczowa's correspondence with Giedroyc, and his letters to other writers. A closer analysis of their views shows that differences were more vital than similarities. At the same time, letters of writers gathered mainly around 'Kultura' allow to reconstruct the reception 'The Forester' got from their fellows.
