Abstract

[In English]

Transition to the digital form of representation of narrative has contributed not only to the emergence of new literary genres but also has paved the way for designing dynamic literary structures that assume the active role of a reader. We have an opportunity to re-examine, in a new context, a number of concepts of Roland Barthes («productivity», «text production» and «Text»), and phenomenon of intertextuality based on typological, comparative-descriptive and structural methods of analysis. It’s reasonable to conclude that the transition to the digital form of representation of interactive literary texts has contributed to the emergence of a new category – a dynamic literary form. With its unique and important quality, such as the irreducibility of content to the same actual text, literature of this kind accumulates a number of distinctive features and concepts. Based on the principles described in the work, the literary web service «Naractivity» will be developed, which would help to create dynamic interactive texts. Among the alternative opportunities and techniques that are open to authors in the design of dynamic forms the following should be noted: a possibility of structural review of various literary genres, a wide poetic function of the synthesis of narratives, creation of a model of communicative rivalry, implementation of creative experimentation and/or research in texts of multiple authorship etc.
