On the Metasemiotic Approach to the Analysis of Fiction

The article gives a brief note on the origin of the semiotic trend in linguistic research. Theoretical prerequisites of the metasemiotic approach to the analysis of literary texts are specified. The author offers a possible paradigmatic concept of the metasemiotic analysis based on equivalent but different meanings, as well as on the antonymic oppositions on the material of a literary text.
