«Cossack Look» as a Means of Portraiting in M.A. Sholokhov’s Novel «The Quiet Don»

39

Abstract

The article deals with linguistic means of representing characters' gaze in M.A. Sholokhov's novel «The Quiet Don». The model of single-author description of characters' gaze based on the method of continuous material sampling is developed. The system description of the features of the nonverbal part, rich in content and information layers, proves that the gaze is the most powerful character marker in the novel «The Quiet Don». The study of the semantic language of the eyes in M.A. Sholokhov's fictional text «The Quiet Don» has made it possible to reveal individual-authorial universals, taking into account the extra-linguistic context and the cultural component. The practical significance lies in the possibility of using the materials of this article in the teaching of text stylistics, linguistic and cultural studies, the language of fiction and the modern Russian language.
