CONCEPT OF TIME IN G.STEIN’S «THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ALICE B. TOKLAS»

Abstract: 

The article studies «The Autobiography of Alice B.Toklas» by Gertrude Stein as a modernist text and ex-amines the modernist conception of time. ‘Time’ is perceived as something simultaneous, actual, denuded of memory, space-like, multidimentional. The roots of this perception of time can be traced back to W.James’s and J.W.Dann’s theories. Different methods and techniques for constructing such a time model are under the analysis. 

Key words: 

G.Stein, avant-garde, modernism, simultaneousness, space-like time.
