Roman P. Zahrebelny " Eupraxia " and "Bojestvenniy Uliy" by Bohenskiy in postmodern prospects

I.V. Kropyvko


The novels "Divine Julius" by J. Bohensky  and "Evpraksiya" by P. Zahrebelny are considered in terms of comparative poetics to identify postmodern elements. Writers tend to consideration of history as a phenomenon that is represented in the texts’ form, referenced objects, so writers are guided by documentary evidence (P. Zahrebelny – by chronicles, J. Bohensky – by memories of Caesar, Plutarch records). Also such features are defined as postmodern: attention to reproduce the emotional world of heroes, the rejection of the creation of "grand narratives" in favor of "local narratives", choice of Scriptorium as narrator, combining artistry with scientism of historical research, the introduction of intertextuality, emphasizing the artistic conventions of image, shifting of narrative focus, creating the effect of epistemological polifony, appeal to stylization, parody, irony, use the font (discharge) to emphasize the speech intonation ("the Divine Julius"), understanding by narrator the specific positions of his own work, attention to language issues, breach of artistic and genre integrity, genre polyphony, look at reality through the prism of childhood and the mythical worldview ("Evpraksiya"). However, such features as affirmation of the ideals of truth and morality, poetics of contrast, psychological depiction are not characteristic for postmodernist aesthetics.

Keywords: postmodernism, poetics, local narrative, scriptor, irony, interdisciplinary perspective, narrative, J. Bohensky, P. Zahrebelny.
