The text is devoted to an analysis of the model of subjectivity implied by the grotesque means of expression in Marian Pankowski's novel 'Here Comes Matuga'. The fundament of the grotesque world view emerging from the prose is the negation of common myths and stereotypes, and a positively valued corporality. The anthropological model of Pankowki's writing fails to be fully described with Mikhail Bakhtin's categories as it is closer to 'anti- humanistic naturalism'. Important contexts of the issues in question are the prose's connections with the picaresque tradition, and a marked influence of Witold Gombrowicz's writings. The ultimate part of the paper shows that the way Pankowski operates with the grotesque decides about the originality of his writings, and at the same time hides the intellectual and artistic constraints of his prose and of the personality model present in it.
