On the base of Michelangelo Antonioni’s movie “The night”
Ala A. Kharatyan
A new technical trick in the literature – the semantic-structural use of montage in the novel “The Alive and The Dead” by Hrant Matevosyan is expressed in the article. The article also analyzes and receals the co-penetrating of the two arts due to which Matevosyan’s prose has become quite a different phenomenon in the classical art by the means of enriching the possibilities of prose, acquiring a great intertextuality, as well as raising the readers’ standards. Some elements of the famous Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni’s film “The Night” are revealed with the help of montage. The novel has a complicated montage technique: on one hand the plot of the film has twisted into the literal text, on the other hand another plot has been involved in the novel, the author of which is the novel’s protagonist, and on the third hand quite another element is merged into the novel – the personal life of the protagonist and the features of Antonioni’s film which are outwardly similar but inwardly different. By analyzing the novel’s ifficult elements it has been displayed that as a united text the novel expresses Matevosyan’s world outlook and his attitude towards the art and it is also a guiding principle to understand his aesthetic concept.
