Reading Translingual Literary Text in Polycultural Audience

Cover Page


This article offers a technique for working with translingual literature in a multilingual audience. The object of analysis - Russophon text - is considered as a meeting place for languages and cultures, the elements of which can be explicated in the presence of the necessary background knowledge. The author cites as an example a joint reading with the students of the novel cycle of the famous Kazakhstan writer A. Zhaksylykov - a multi-level artistic whole that can be deciphered adequately only within the framework of the translingual approach. The purpose of the article is to help specialists choose a methodology for interpreting the text in which the analysis could become productive.
