The phenomenon of the border on the basis of I. Bachmann’s prose is considered in this article. The potential of the motive of the border to generate senses and plot is researched by means of selecting and analyzing its semantic variations. The motive of the border is used by the author to develop such existential significant aspects as “me” and “the other”, language and consciousness, word and sense.
