Abstract

The article explores the interpretation of the creative heritage of romantic poets by the postcolonial author John Maxwell Coetzee. The South African writer uses the landmark works of the English romantics (Wordsworth, Byron) as a kind of guide / «key» to the penetration and deciphering of the complex realities of modernity in the novel «Infamy». The key turning points of the main character of the novel (encroachment, scandal, bad words) turn out to be a mirror image of the life and work of romantic poets. English romanticism is an important element of the novel «Infamy». He helps to build the plot structure of the work and allows to penetrate into the contradictory essence of modern man.
