Нарративные модели в романе-воспоминании Генри Грина «Пойманные»

The research presented in the article is carried out in the framework of narratology which has become extremely popular outside Literary Criticism, Linguistics and even philological disciplines as such. From narratological aspect the author addresses  the issues of English late Modernism of the 1940s which has not yet received proper theoretisation. Modernism at this stage responds to the demands of the Realist age and at the same time apprehends the beginning of Postmodernist era.

The article focuses on the problem of transposition between unmediated objective (historical) and mediated subjective (narrated) realities within the fictitious world of the novel as well as between the text and the reality of the biographical author and reader. The basis for this transgression is narration as process which consequently binds a character with a character, a character with a narrator and the latter with the biographical author and reader. In the novel by Henry Green (whose oeuvre is virtually unknown in Russia) narration takes the form of reminiscences. The characters’ attempts to connect the present with the past reflect the implied reader’s perception of fictitious text and reality.
