TIME, SPACE AND NAMES. A NEW FORMULATION OF THE PROBLEM OF THE LOCALIZATIONAL FUNCTION OF LITERARY ONOMASTICS
Languages of publication
This article is devoted to a new definition of the localizational function of literary onomastics, a function that to this point has been understood in a narrow sense and frequently regarded by onomasts as a secondary function. The author proposes a departure from the traditional understanding of localization (indication of the specific place and time of events) by taking advantage of recent research proposals redefining the concept of time (E. Cioran, M. Dabrowski, H. Markiewicz, B. Zielinska) and space (M. Eliade, M. Glowinski, M. Porebski, J. Slawinski). On the basis of analysis of selected prose fragments the author demonstrates that the localizational function in its broad sense has a significantly higher stylistic importance, and taking into consideration its full paradigm allows one to motivate functionally the onymic level of literary text (especially authentic names given to the same referents as in extraliterary reality).
