This article is concerned with various modes of narrative memory in Travels with Herodotus, considered against the background of Ryszard Kapuściński’s other travelogues. A close examination of the specifi c manifestations of memory in terms of its content and the manner of remembering and presenting a story reveals that each of the key narrative fi gures in Kapuściński’s factual fi ction, i.e. the reporter, the writer, the historiographer, and the traveler, is endowed with a bundle of narrative memory modes (attitudes). These attitudes are distinct and complementary, but they also interlock in a way peculiar to each of the Kapuściński’s character types. Their integrity is also secured by the author’s intention to keep track of ‘Memory [travelling] along the Roadways of the World’.
