Модус воспоминания в английском перволичном ретроспективном романе ХХ в.

Новый филологический вестник. 2016. Т. 39. № 4. С. 126-136.

The article demonstrates how memory as a mental mode becomes the key element in the narrative structure of XX century English novels that are retrospective and narrated in the first person. Some of these works have not been translated into Russian and thoroughly studies. Two models are suggested for such novels. In the first model memory is a spontaneous autocommunicative process. The narrator in the present reaches out to himself as a character in the past and restores the chronological sequence of events up to the present moment. The second model blends the present with the past, the narrator with the character, uses multiple narrative techniques and, to a larger extent than the first model, is communicatively oriented towards the reader.
