Abstract

The article analyzes mental representations of Russian lyrical prose texts. The texts demonstrate collective memory engrams that are defined by cultural and historical legacy of the nation and authors’ creative world perception. In architectonics of a lyrical prose text, sense perception reveals itself in accumulated underlying meanings and wisdom conveyed by expressive means. The author’s intention shows through lyrical dispersion understood here as a synthesis of variation in nomination and expressive resources of the language. Mental representations of the Russian lyrical prose texts emerge out of authentic Russian culture. Linguistic means through which they are revealed demonstrate subjective codes of the author’s mind that are deciphered by readers of lyrical prose.
