Abstract

The article is devoted to the study of linguistic peculiarities of the artistic space of contemporary French female prose. This purpose is to determine the features of the linguistic representation of gender characters, which fix the difference between men and women as representatives of different gender groups. There are described the results of recent studies on gender linguistics. So we formulated the vast questions of the studying problem. Our attention has been concentrated on the stereotyped perception of gender roles by the authors of modern French novels, which finds its confirmation in the development of the narrative space and the structure of the statements of characters. Else we are defined the main features of the artistic female text and proposed the notion of «female prose». The duality of the gender system, which is reflected in the text material in the contrasting expression of femininity / masculinity, is confirmed. It is noted that gender differentiation in the artistic space of French female prose reflects the French male society, though last time we observe feminist trends. It is proved that there is not only the differentiation of representatives of different gender units, but also it’s noted the change in gender roles in modern society, which is reflected in the factual material. Thus, for example, the special attention in the text acquires a description of men / women professional activity according to gender changes. The perspective for further research it is conceded in the study of the male art space, with the aim of outlining gender stereotyped roles in the patriarchal French society, as well as a comparison of the construction of feminine and masculine French narrative.
