AUTHOR CONSCIOUSNESS EXPLICATION IN HONORE BALZAC’S WORKS
The problem of the author, ways of expressing the author’s consciousness, author’s identity and representation, communication and interaction between the author and the hero, the author and the reader – the subject of scientific reflection of leading native literary scholars. This problem is one of the most complex and multilateral, despite the fact that the range of studies devoted to studying the problem of the author, the author’s presence in the text is wide and diverse. Understanding the author’s intention, revealing the author’s assessment – is the way to understanding the artistic content of the work. The category of author’s consciousness has become a priority, since it is aimed at the specificity of artistic consciousness of a separate historical-literary period, direction, genre in modern literary studies. Consciousness of the author is the consciousness of consciousness, covering the consciousness of the hero and his world. Author-creator is a spokesman of consciousness, the result – the work of art – the result of creative individuality. Forms of expression of the author’s consciousness also depend on the individuality of the writer. The dynamics of theoretical explication of the category of author’s consciousness in modern literary criticism is rather promising and requires new searches for a method of adequate interpretation.
