The use of the precedent phenomenon in literature can be considered as the artistic touch applied by the author to create more exact and at the same time indirect characteristic of the hero or any element of the plot. Novels under analysis belong to historical stylization. To confirm a number of assumptions about the use of canon texts and phenomena, and also to define the repetition frequency of links from this or that category of pretexts we worked out the content analysis of precedent phenomenon and put it into practice.
