In the wide spectrum of the created forms of historical genre (I. Latković), Jančar’s novel Galijot, with its theme of a character who is a foreigner, sets this issue as a semantic and conceptual knot of his novel and as such also represents an optimal point in his interpretative – analytical act. In the process of formation and realization of a different concept of the character of a foreigner, different with regard to the traditional historical novel, different narrative procedures are explored that ultimately achieve the effect of the disintegration of a narrative figure. By such processes a binary system of values is relativized on which the fictional universe of the traditional historical novel was based. In the process of relativization, the deconstruction of a powerful binary opposition played an important role which was inherent in the traditional varieties of this novel (her / himself, good / evil, collective / individual). These are the basis on which the problem of identity, its formation, and (re)presentation is set. In addition, with the support of previous interpretations at the end (Z. Kovač) we are trying to actualize historical times in our research. The combination makes for an unbreakable semantic potential: the repercussions of the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation era in which the events of the novel are transferred, the genesis time of the novel, as well as our modern era of socialism, and the transition from the perspective of the person reading the novel and the person experiencing it today.
