Annotation: The article is devoted to studying connection of the narrative strategy with the features of a philological novel. The strategy realises “event” of communication between the subject and the addressee of the narration as well as it is a marker of the genre variety. As a result the strategy turns out to be associated with the categories of genre and discourse. On the basis of the works of different scientists, the problem of the correlation of the concepts is considered. The hypothesis is put forward that the logos of narration serves as a «mediator» between the strategy and genre features of a philological novel. On the basis of Charles Sanders Peirce’s doctrine about the typology of signs, the logos of narration in Vladimir Novikov’s novel «A Romance with Language» and David John Lodge’s novel «Nice Work» is explored. The analysis reveals the presence of iconic and metabolic logos in Vladimir Novikov’s novel while emblematic, in Lodge’s novel. The features of discursiveness in the novels testify to its connection with the genre features of a philological novel (playing with the reader, irony, provocativeness and the search for an ideal recipient). As an indicator of narrative modality (it is one of the elements of the strategy), the logos of narration becomes a «mediator» between the strategy and the characteristics of the genre in question.
Keywords: Vladimir Novikov, David John Lodge, theory of literature, narrative strategy, philological novel, logos of narration, genre, narrative modality
