Latent Evaluation in Infinitive Writing
The article deals with the results of an experiment on modelling the reader's perception of infinitive writing modal semantics. The author argues
that the reader's interpretation of infinitive writing bases on connotation semantics of a poetic text rather than on the 'grammar of poetry'.
Text reinterpretation and the motif of transformation in a short form of Internet poetry
... in a special position. The truncated line, independently or together with the third line, comprises the punchline of a poroshok. The punchline is practically mandatory and may be presented in greater detail inasmuch as it does not simply violate the reader’s expectations but enters into conflict with the beginning of the verse and forces the reader to reinterpret it. Reinterpretation manes that readers change their perception of the situation or carry out a ‘transformation’, that is, substitute ...
On the function of biblical anthroponyms David and Goliath in poetic texts of A. I. Polezhaeva and V. Ya. Bryusova

Changes are revealed in the semantics of images resulting from the author’s individual assessment and the reader’s perception. The author demonstrates the dependence of the functioning of the two biblical anthropoetonims on the character of text-reader communication, and on the formation of the common cultural space of the author and the reader.

Modal particles accentuate modal and textual meanings and bring socially significant information to the reader.

On the Dual Role of the Translator of Poetry and the Division of Roles
This article deals with the roles and functions of a translator of poetry. The study identifies certain components of the process, within which a translator acts simultaneously as a transmitter of the original culture, a mediator between the reader and the author of the source text, a co-author, a linguistic innovator, a poet, and a linguist. The two latter roles are crucial for translating poetry. Translators of poetry create ‘their own’ texts. It is obvious that they cannot distance ...

When creating a text, the author conveys his or her desires and expresses his or her attitude to the chosen problem. This study aims to answers two questions....

How transcendental are Kant’s principles of public law?
... principles are as empirical criteria for establishing legitimacy, and whether they can be characterized as ‘transcendental’. Kant’s discourse on publicity — a result of strenuous efforts presented in a number of writings and lectures — takes the reader to the area of empirical practices and anthropological observations capable of distorting the required purity of the form when taken together. In effect, they turn out to be either motives for searching for transcendental principles or example ...

The duality, amalgamation of reality and fiction, reciprocity, and the inclusion of the reader into the process of textual modeling through cross-references and intertextual connections constitute the basis of Daniel Kehlmann’s poetics.

It is also shown that the fictional world realized in a literary text may bring the reader to certain conclusions about the world in which he or she lives. Thus, even if literature is incapable of affecting reality, it can change the way the latter is perceived. A fictional world is not just a reality — it is a reality of a higher ...
