ARTISTIC INTERPRETATION OF MODERN SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES IN ANTI-UTOPIA AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 21st CENTURY (BASED ON C.DENNIG’S NOVEL «CLONE’S KISSES»)

Abstract: 

Inclusion of original facts and real events in fiction is a plot-forming principle of the anti-utopia genre. The novel «Clone’s Kisses» of the modern Austrian writer C.Dennig is analyzed in the article. The author shows the anti-utopian reinterpretation of the scientific achievements in the field genetic engineering by means of reducing the goals and postulates of modern science to an absurd end as well as by giving force to the grotesque description of the social realities at the end of XX - beginning of XXI century.

Key words: 

C.Dennig, anti-utopia, scientific discoveries at the end of the 20th -beginning of the 21st cen-tury.
