The article discusses two types of relations between cultural sciences on the one hand and literature and literary scholarship on the other, focusing especially on the issue of kinship between our contemporary cultural anthropology as a meaning-establishing activity, and, creation of presented worlds in literature. As an example of a peculiar 'consonance' of cultural science and creative literary work, the current of English-language post-colonial literature and the so-called multicultural prose of today, stemming from the former, have been made subject to closer analysis. The author argues that both domains, i.e. anthropology and literature, mutually explain each other, constituting reciprocal interpretative contexts as well as a source of sharing experiences reflecting the compound identity situation of present-day humans.
