The article is devoted to contemporary literary work of Tatars of Poland, Lithuania and Belarus. Based on the materials of Eastern European Literature created by Tatars attempt was made to determine the effectiveness of geopoetics in research work of contemporary descendants of the Tatars of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Author's primarily interest is in the question of how – in relation to the modern Tatar literature – can be useful to the historian of literature the departure from history and return to the humanistic geography. This question is all the more important because the content of “cultural archive” of literature of Eastern European Tatars is affected by the fact that it is created in three different countries (Belarus, Lithuania and Poland) and four different languages (Belarusian, Lithuanian, Polish and Russian). Wherein distinct historical experience applied in the work of Eastern European Tatars creates uniform "archetypal experience" (a reference to the ancient Turkic-shamanic tradition and contemporary Muslim tradition). The article was written under a research project titled “Polish Tatar literature after 1918”, funded by the Polish National Science Centre under decision no. DEC-2012/07/B/HS2/00292.
