The article tries to look at Edward Stachura's prose through the prism of relations between life and creative activity. In Stachura's works, contact with reality fructifies in philosophical reflection. The article analyzes Stachura's prose through a category of suffering - it is suffering that constitutes experience that significantly defines both Stachura's personality and personalities of his created characters, being examples of homo patiens. It is shown how the author's suffering gets transferred to his prose. Undergoing successive personality transformations, Stachura's character tries to describe the cause of his suffering - individual literary personifications are examples of various forms of coping with pain and of peculiar experiments carried out on personality to get liberated from the pain. Stachura's solution consisting in trying to deny himself is verified, and it is shown how the attempt to introduce solutions suggested in his texts caused Stachura's personal disaster.
