Description The paper deals with the archetype of a stranger and its application to Stepnyak-Kravchinsky’s collection of Russian revolutionaries’ sketches and profiles Underground Russia. For Stepnyak-Kravchinsky’s terrorists revolutionaries the notion of belonging was of crucial importance as they considered themselves excluded from the society because of their political opinions. But situation was more complicated for them because external and internal factors such as social origin, emigration, family background, gender or one’s complicated personality sometimes prevented them from complete integration into the organization. The cases of Petr Kropotkin, Dmitrij Klemenc, Gesya Gelfman, Dmitrij Lizogub etc. show how ideal of belonging to the revolutionary organization does not always correspond with reality. From the point of view of their personal lives, these people were excluded even from the organization where everybody was supposed to be equal to each other. They became strangers. Despite the fact they longed to be part of the community, they were excluded once again because of the above-mentioned differences.
