The subject of this article concerns the elaboration of the fable by Andrei Platonov, a genre which engaged his literary interest in his late works. Exploration of the genre gave him the opportunity to convey the ontological ideas in fabulous and symbolic images on the one hand, and enrich the folk genre with the philosophical reflection on the other. Platonov managed to take the exception to the Lotman's rule: he introduced the genre model of magic fable worked out by V. Propp into the novel. Platonov adapted all the functions of the magic fable to the novel 'Chevengur' retaining the poetic of the genre and adding philosophical essence to its motifs. The writer replaced the typical folk images and motifs with more universal ones. Platonov's philosophical attitude towards the fable is revealed especially in his collections of folk fables written in the last period of his activity. The magic circle is one of the best examples of his ontological approach to national folk stories, in which peasants turn into philosophers.
