Poznámky k poetice Dostojevského: Bratři Karamazovi
NOTES ON DOSTOYEVSKY’S POETICS: THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV
Languages of publication
Dostoyevsky in his novel The Brothers Karamazov develops to unusual extend a play with the language material, with narrative principles, with the semantics of words. These techniques contain future predictions, returns to the past, the system of repetition and variations creating a great semantic space behind many expressions on the level of poetic positions. The wealth of the semantic perspectives, of references to the hidden unknown content, the mysterious significant ciphers are integral part of Dostoyevsky’s poetics. Author with a great favour allocates objects and pronouncements which become an image and a symbol, in the text they go across many mutually not united figures at the same time. The favourite Dostoyevsky’s method are the most various word plays and funs. The funs used to be often based on mingling of reality and metaphor. Dostoyevsky understands the extensive lexical body of his novel like a poet: language, semantics and stylistics by means of expression have for his writing a crucial importance.
