«THE POETICS OF MEMORY»: OVERCOMING AUTOBIOGRAPHISM

Abstract: 

The paper analyses the works of literature in which autobiographical material is transformed by «the poet-ics of memory». The works of Marcel Proust, Gaito Gazdanov, Vladimir Nabokov, Yuri Trifonov dem-onstrate that “the poetics of memory” constructs a special type of character which helps to express the au-thor’s conception of memory. Despite constant reference to the facts of his biography, the author creates not memoirs but fiction. 

Key words: 

”the poetics of memory”, autobiography, fiction, constructing a special type of character, plot-compositional unity, conception of memory, Marcel Proust, Gaito Gazdanov, Vladimir Nabokov, Yuri Trifonov.
