For the first time, a semiotic model of mythological scenario on the basis of modern Ukrainian literature was substantiated and evaluated, problem field of issues, linked with its definition and description was outlined, relevant algorithms for its reading and decoding were discovered. For the first time literary concept of mythological scenario was introduced into scientific circulation as semiotic construct with mythologically compressed traditional plots, images and motives, subordinated to special role function of keeping scenic code, algorithm of actions, constantly being autogenerated semantically and recreating genes of precedent paradigms in idiostyles variations. Mythical plots with certain mythologeme/mythomotive dominant (mythical plot invariant, such as beginning, end, Paradise, initiation, opposition etc.) combine in mythological scenario, modelling conflict algorithm with dynamic, variable strong positions and constant archetypical-mythologemical core. Fenomenality, universality and intersemioticity of mythological scenario are based on its ability to keep in mythologemes concentrated mythical plot, projecting variants of event and behaviour. Literary and journalistic discourses unfold / hide mythological scenarios, appealing to receptive alphabet of mythological message readers. Literary typology of mythological scenarios was proposed, based on semiotic approach. Algorithms of modeling of different types of scenarios were found: symbolic and simulation mythomodels (represented by literary and journalistic discourses respectively) are realized on three – mega-, macro- and micro- – levels. This three-level construct is universal for all discourses, only nuances of functioning are different. Megamythoscenarios are represented by scenarios of nuclear and oppositive types. Nuclear type is explicated by scenarios (key for world mythologies) of beginning and end, which are megaconstructs with property of textual multivariant. They model open series of microscenario text duplicates. Oppositive type reflects universal binary worldview system. Macro-mythoscenarios, symbolic mythomodel of dominant-peripheral type, are represented by two-focal and three-focal macroconstructs. Two-focus dominant-peripheral mythological models are explicated by mythoscenarios of lost and found Paradise: with 39 dominant mythologeme “Paradise” and mirrored peripheral element: founding and loosing of Paradise. Paradise acts as mythologeme with bold contrast bisemia through auxiliary components: lost/found. Both scenarios reflect key myths: cosmological and eschatological. Three-focus mythological model is represented by initiation macroscenario with key components united by mythologeme of way: “return to chaos” (transition to unusual state), probation and strict initiation transformation. Semiotic simulative mythomodel is represented by macroscenario of dominant-peripheral type of pseudoinitiation and megascenario of oppositive type: scenarios of opposition, resistance and so on. Individual author’s interpretations of mythological scenarios as symbolic mythomodel manifestation was explored. Scenario variations of initiation ritual, cosmogony, eschatological, twins myths in literature on XX–XXI border were defined. Multivariant idiostyle treatment of sacral mythoscenarios with definition of correlative links between precedent mythoscenarios and neomythological idiostyle models were substantiated. Simulative semiotic model of mythoscenario based on journalistic texts of «Krytyka» magazine was analyzed. It has property of fragmentation, empty components, inclusive pseudomythological components, simulacrum in microstructure, that provokes actualization of mythological scenario of pseudo- or rudimentary initiation, pseudomythoscenario of duel (with pseudo-hero as fictive actant of action algorithm and pseudoopposition as provocation of desacralized/demythologized opposition). Megamythoscenarios of oppositive type – opposition – were investigated in journalistic texts by cluster analysis: with differentiation of mythologeme coordinates of Other, Enemy, Sacrifice etc. in theme discourse clusters and analyzed through prism of memory/forgetting, corporeality, language, name, self- and national identity.
