The paper discusses the claim that borders and frontiers are a source of experience, and at the same time a category which describes Haupt’s prose well. In his works, the border category appears in the form of a line marking clear delimitation, and in the form of a buffer zone between different areas. Haupt translates the geographical-political notion of a border into axiology, epistemology, interpersonal experience and writing techniques. His fascination with borders expresses seeking a convenient place which would allow one to perceive the world and text as a complex order situated on the opposite pole to the undifferentiated chaos of the modern reality.
