Abstract

The article provides a comparative analysis of Apple Blossoms by Mykhailo Kotsiubynskyi and The Apple Tree by John Galsworthy. Both authors explore human morality in a crisis of confrontation between sensuality and death, the beauty of life and the beauty of art. At the structural level, the works share an element of paratext, novelistic nature, polysemic images-landscapes, and methods of psychologization. Galsworthy engages the antinomy of city – province, resorts to irony, and combines elements of impressionist writing with the traditions of realistic socio-psychological prose. In contrast, Kotsiubynskyi systematically implemented the impressionist fragmentary nature of the composition, symbolism of visual and auditory images, in-depth psychoanalysis, and the conventionality of the chronotope. The issues of short stories diversify and become aesthetic – as is distinct for modernist literature – implicitly in Kotsiubynskyi’s work, and most explicitly through the connections with the antique and English intertext in Galsworthy’s.
