The article concerns prose of the Slovak contemporary writer, Márius Kopcsay and it focuses on the analysis of the type of protagonist created in his books. Kopcsay draws on the ironic, demitologising line in Slovak literature and records everyday life of ordinary, worthless, often physically and mentally distorted character. The typical protagonist of his short-stories collections (A Critical Day, 1998, A Lost Years, 2004, Useless life, 2006) and the novel Home (2005) has problems with adaptation, he is not able to build good relationships in his work, he can’t communicate with his family. Specific creation of main character in Kopcsay’s prose can be interpreted in a context of postmodern philosophy, although his texts are traditional and realistic; the second important aspect is new cultural and social situation in post-communistic countries and its influence on people’s identity.
