The material for this research comes from short-stories “A manuscript found in a pocket” by an Argentine author Julio Cortazar and “At Gypsi women’s” by a Romanian scholar-mythologist and writer Mircea Eliade; the object for the research is fiction time-space traced in these stories. The main method of interpreting the text meanings is chronotope. The research discusses the peculiarities of modeling the chronotopes by Cortazar and Eliade: by the underground and spiral-shaped labyrinths respectively. The mythologeme of labyrinth is studied through mythological perspectives of chronotopes, symbols, loci, mediators, signs, psychological associatives, attributes including key motives of the text, intentionals (World Tree, chthonic underworld personified by “spiders”), and binary oppositions (masks-faces, authentic-false). Special attention is given to marginal images: window, mirror, curtain, steps, ritualisation of passage from real world to unreal, semantics of illusory which determines the poly-chronotope character of the short-story texts.
