Article considers emotivity manifestation in English poetic pastorals. In the study, the term “emotive turn” has been introduced to denote a dynamic character of a poetic text emotivity which is based on psychological transitions of emotions. Emotive turn has been regarded as a change of emotive tone of a poem to its opposite which testifies to conscious or preconscious emotional reorientation of the poet. It has been revealed that the specificity of emotive turn in English pastoral poems lies in distribution of stylistic means between negative and positive modes of a text whereas emotivity moves from the neutral or negative mode (the feeling of anxiety) to the positive one (the feeling of delight), which is motivated by the lyric subject's strive to achieve harmony. In English pastorals, the image of harmony appears to be a cumulative formation which involves a step-by-step incorporation of the components necessary for its uprising. This happens due to the author’s use of different motives, the central ones being the motive of anxiety blocking and motive of delight fixing. The analysis of the material has resulted in singling out the invariant and variant models of emotivity manifestation in English pastorals. The invariant model (protomodel) presupposes a linear arrangement of textual motives of emotivity creation which is conditioned by the logical transition of the lyric subject from a neutral or negative emotional state to the state of harmonious elation. Variant (or “pendulous”) emotive model in English poetic pastorals is characterized by the transition from neutral / negative emotional state of the lyric subject to the positive one through a number of moves which alternatively foreground two opposite emotions (anxiety and delight). This enhances the emotive tension of a poetic text; however, it does not defy the formation of harmony.
