The contribution focuses on a specific form of masculinity in the poetry of Michal Habaj, a contemporary Slovak poet. The article describes the phenomenon camp in connection with experimental verses of this poet. Camp is represented by a way of looking at the world as an aesthetic phenomenon that is not based on beauty, but on stylization, as Susan Sontag presented it in her essay. The contribution focuses on a main feature of the stylization (artisticity and theatricality) and presents the consequences of stylizing a subject into a voyeur-oriented modern troubadour. It describes a phenomenon of game and irony in a work of Michal Habaj: a subversive game with the function of basic literary categories, a game with gender and a game with discourse, in connection with the transformation of the category of masculinity into poetry.
