Discursive strategy of Zafón is aimed at destruction of the traditional understanding of the category “literary style”. Genre heterogeneity of the novel can be considered as a kind of parody which is not debunking-sarcastic, but eulogizing, exalting, synthesizing and extolling of the literature of mankind as a whole.
The relevance of the study is due to the need for interaction in the modern multicultural world with various national cultures that now enter the sphere of education, the need to understand the patterns of today's cultural consciousness.
The leading approach to the study of this problem was the method of linguistic analysis of the text, which is the basis of all linguistic methods and is characterized by extreme polysemy. In this paper, the linguistic analysis is combined with the literary analysis and is understood as a linguistic semantic analysis focused on understanding the subject-logical content of the text. Consideration of the work in this article occurs initially from the point of view of synthetic method. Complex methods of further holistic-selective analysis are used to determine the content and style dominants of the work.
The article concludes that not only the composition of works and the manner of writing is eclectic, but also the author's artistic picture of the world. The peculiarities of the discursive author strategy aimed at deconstructing the traditional understanding of the category "literary style" are revealed. The authors come to conclusion that there are common author's techniques and plot lines among his works and the literary heritage of such novelists and mystics who represent and inherit the powerful literary traditions of Britain, Russia and Latin America. The authors concider that Zafón’s works represent an innovative aesthetic phenomenon in the world culture, the uniqueness of which is based on the eclectic and dynamic nature and architectonics of the author's art picture of the world comprehensively and fully embodied in the tetralogy "Cemetery of Forgotten Books".
The article is aimed at identifying the features of C. Ruis Zafón’s style and revealing the ways of individual artistic thinking, which is a means to comprehend the world.
Keywords: eclecticism, continuity, modern Spanish literature, symbol, metaphor, repeatable images, art picture of the world
