MetadataShow full item record
The paper aims at presenting the set of vocabulary from the field of green colour and analysing its semantic value. The selected lexical material represents ten short stories by Vladimir Nabokov: The Wood-Sprite, Russian Spoken Here, Sounds, Wingstroke, Gods, Word, The Seaport, Revenge, Beneficence and A Matter of Chance. In the article, the main attention is focused on describing the way in which the writer creates the world in his literary texts. As it is shown, colours are indispensable part of Nabokov’s prose. The distribution of the green colour and modification of its shades as well as the use of green colour in metonymic expressions testify to the Nabokov’s idea that there is no “generic difference between poetry and artistic prose”.
