The purpose of this article is to study the poetics of Angela Nanetti's story «My grandfather was a merry» as an artistic representation of «new» children's literature. The set of scientific methods used in this study includes historical-literary, psychoanalytic, and archetypal, in particular, comparative. It is this combination of research tools that agreement it possible to solve the main tasks, such as: determining the characterology of «new» children's literature; analysis of the story «My grandfather was a merry» through the prism of social and psychological problems; clarifying the specifics of revealing the issue of identity in the work; examination of the figurative system of the story and the role of archetypes in its formation. Both these tasks and Angela Nanetti's story as an object of study that has not yet been studied in our literary studies determine its novelty. In the course of the research, it was determined that «new» children's literature is the works of the modern stage of the development of literature for children and about children, the authors of which refused to play with the children's audience, the profanation of childhood as an immature and therefore unimportant stage in a person's life, the image of a child as «small adults», narrowing the issue down to a conditionally children's one, etc. It has been proven that the characteristic features of the «new» children's literature revealed in Angela Nanetti's story are the immersion in the psychology of the child character, the use of children's optics to raise issues from the level of literature for adults, such generational conflict, death and the experience of loss, identity searches, etc. At the same time, the function of the children's character is reinterpreted in connection with his role in the search for the identity of adults. The research tracked how the light irony of the children's narrative, oneiric elements, and archetypal nature of the story's figurative system form a special artistic model of the world as an alternative «adult» one, inherent in the realistic style. Therefore, the work takes on the characteristics of a parable text.
