Historian in critic, critic in historian.The article elaborates on the thesis saying that in Jan Błoński’s writings comes in a very fruitful way to reconciliation of two figures of literary criticism discourse: the literary historian and critic. The author discusses two factors that make this possible; the first is a combination of emotional attitude with and intellectual research practice, the second is a kind Błoński’s bifocalism, in other words an easiness in changing the perspective, the ability to simultaneously maintain in the field of view the both ranges – near and far, thus a generalising formula shows through a individual interpretation, and a detailed and static description also becomes a part of the broad and moving image.
