Взаимосвязь анжамбемана и когнитивных метафор в поэзии Эндрю Хаджинса

The book “Babylon in a Jar” by Andrew Hudgins, a contemporary American author, attracts readers with its unique poetic space. This space is created by means of cognitive metaphors and a refi ned organization of lines on the pages. Enjambement is the main instrument of organizing the texts. The visual image of the texts on the pages helps readers to imagine the space described in the poems. The article presents an analysis of key cognitive metaphors of the book and interconnections between these metaphors and enjambement and seeks to show that enjambement takes part in the formation of cognitive metaphors in cases where it contains a shift from literal to metaphorical. To accomplish this objective, it examines metaphorical expressions representing cognitive metaphors and cases of enjambement becoming agent for cognitive metaphors. The results of research demonstrate that the organization of poetic texts on pages determines space of the poems and enjambement is helpful for indepth interpretation of key cognitive metaphors and understanding of the poet’s worldview.
