This article is devoted to the comprehension of Russian-language literature problem, which is an organic part of translingual literature, relevant for modern philology. Works created in Russian by ethnically non-Russian authors are characterized by their ethnic substrate - an “internal form of culture”, which is actualized both at the level of individual lexical elements and at the level of microand macro-plots, script implications, mythologemes and culture codes. The study was based on selected poems by the outstanding North Ossetian poet I.S. Khugaev. The selection of works was carried out taking into account the presence of “opaque” ethno-cultural elements that represent important information about the original culture transmitted in the poetic text, as well as the reconstruction of fragments of the national “model of the world” in them, recreated in poems.
