Abstract (summary) The article presents the analysis of motif-structure of the novel by Richard Aldington «All men are enemies» (in particular, its relationship with the system of characters of the book). Sets of motifs corresponding to specific stages in the development of the image of the main character were identified; a nuclear-peripheral motif model was built where the movement of motifs from the nucleus to the peripheral zone demonstrates the importance of a particular event at the plot level of the novel. The movement of story and fable motifs reflects the evolution of the main character’s relations towards reality and its conscious refusal to become a part of a post-war society.
