THE PECULIARITIES OF CONCEPT SPHERE “CULTURE” IN PROSE WORKS OF CLARICE LISPECTOR

N. V. Glinka, V. M. Havrylenko

Abstract


 The article gives the observation of the structure of the concept sphere “culture” in the prose works of a Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. The authors provide the description of the concept sphere itself, clarify the main functions of the phenomenon of concept sphere in realizing the national mentality, the thoughts of carriers of the language and in the endless process of formation of the picture of the world of a particular nation. The article also highlights the characteristic features of the constituents of the aforementioned concept sphere – the concept systems and concepts. The assumptions were made concerning the ways and specific features of the concepts verbalization and how the choice of certain concepts influences the content side of the Clarice Lispector’s works; special attention was paid to the idiostylistic features typical for Clarice Lispector’s works. The topicality of the article is based on the fact of absence of any linguistic works devoted to the literary heritage of Clarice Lispector in Ukrainian philology and literature studies, so it gives a floor for research whether there are some common features in 3 cultures, to which Clarice Lispector belongs – Jewish, Ukrainian and Brazilian; and are these cultures somehow reflected and intertwined (or not) in the scope of her work.
