REALISM OF THE BREAKTHROUGH. THE INTERNAL TEXT IN FYODOR DOSTOYEVSKY'S PROSE
The author analyses the specific construction of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's prose, which he calls the 'internal text'. He assumes that it is an additional structure of signs placed into a literary text that breaks the text-reality tension (this is what makes it different from a common case of 'story within a story' and a quotation). Thus Dostoyevsky's writings transcends not only the borders of broadly understood realism, but also touches the relationship between literature and reality in total. At the same time, the author recalls the older, 'pre-Balzacian' type of novel, the sources of which are found in Cervantes's 'Don Quixote'. This model questions the narrator's credibility and obviousness of the world presented. Pietrzak proves that in Dostoyevsky's text, both the internal text and the world presented are in a dialectic tension and continuously shape one another.
