Heading: To the 150-th anniversary of the birthday of Lesia Ukrainka
Language: Ukrainian

The article offers a stylistic analysis of Lesia Ukrainka’s drama “In the Catacombs”. The basis of the research methodology is the linguosophical approach, ie the projection of the topic – the main idea – issues, features of social and ideological conflicts on the linguistic basis of the work. Emphasis is placed on the lexical and grammatical manifestations of the interaction of rhetoric of “high”, “neutral” and “low” registers for the advantages of the first two. In this regard, communication with theological, evangelical and everyday topics is differentiated.
Emphasis is placed on the stylistics of the antithesis, the symbolism of the text, the textual interpretation of precedent names. It is established that the first helps to stylize the debatability, polylogical communication of the characters, the second – to express the philosophy of the boundaries of earthly and spiritual being. It is emphasized that the interpretation of precedent phenomena in Lesia Ukrainka corresponds to the author’s strategy of expressing the socio-political position of the intellectual in imperial Russia of the late XIX – early XX centuries.
Changes in the textual semantics of the tokens slave, will have been traced.
It is noted on the role of the text of the drama “In the Catacombs” in the development of the literary Ukrainian literary language as a means of glorifying the ability of the Ukrainian nation to compete.

Keywords: language of poetry, linguosophy of the work, key word, communication, rhetoric, symbol, antithesis.
