In my paper I would like to discuss the notion of the place as the one that the human experiences in the earth household of creatures. The house is, therefore, a point of intersection, where the human world meets the more-than-human one. The house is seen according to certain spiritual, geographical and linguistic criteria. Each of those aspects has, nevertheless, to offer an interpretation of the human belonging in this vast earth household, which is undertaken by Gary Snyder - American poet, translator, environmentalist. Place has its fluidity and joins the human with the earth and their history.
