LINGUAL AND POETIC ACTUALIZATION OF POLITICAL AND SOCIAL CONCEPTS IN GEORGE GORDON BYRON’S POETIC DISCOURSE
The article represents the study of the specificity of literary concepts actualization that delineates the social parameters of national universe in Byron’s poetic discourse through the analysis of imagery poetic forms semantics. Byron’s poetry conceptual space is construed through the prism of the categories of national identity and within the general context of romantic literary world defined as a system of universal artistic principles which are embodied in the text, inform it with a definite aesthetic perspective and integrally represent the entire epoch characterized by a special type of cognition and the unity of values. The article focuses on the analysis of semantic, pragmatic and semiotic aspects of anthropocentric images of poetic texts. In Byron’s poetic discourse the dominating means of poetic conceptualization are: application of precedent names and phenomena, allusions and reminiscences of historic events that in the imagery and compositional structure of the poetic work promote the development of the above mentioned literary concepts in several literary-semantic planes: national policy, national interests, ethnic self identification, national heroism and treason, venality of pseudo national elite, false patriotism, generate the problem of interrelation between the power and people; saturation of the poetic context with metaphors, metonymies, similes, epithets and oxymorons of ambivalent evaluative semantics; development and intensification of symbolic potential of ethnically specific notions and realia. The processes of metonymysation and metaphorisation, in this way, intensify the semantic diversity of lingual and cognitive texture of poetic discourse.
