Expression „small towns” at the first moment is associated to us with pleasurable thoughts about comfortable life without any problems. That places are almost perfect, but in second opinion that kind of towns don’t really exist. That is only our imagination, stereotype, nice pictures from American movies. Senses not often wins with magic of stereotypes, but in literature sometimes appear some relists who are trying to find truth about world – in its ugly, unhappy face. The one of them is Andrzej Bursa, cold cursed poet – cynical critic of our everyday. In my paper I tried to oppose his vision of province against to his opinion about big cities, to show how original is his approach to the subject, and his battle with mendacity. The truth shown in poems – Town and Warsaw – Phantom – is unsightly and it doesn’t fit readers in a good mood, but it is the highest, unfortunately steel exotic, value. According to Bursa good side of ugliness is authenticity which we can find in small towns. Big cities attract us, but there is a trap - they aren’t real. It is a reference to Boudiliard’s theory about reality and simulations. Man from Bursa’s lines have to choose between life in kind of dream in the city and realistic, ugly province. Both of them pose obstacles and have some good and bad sides, but they are only opposition to nothingness, which is the biggest fear for modern people.
