Постмодернистката деконструкция на провинциално-имперските координати: „Убийство във Византия“ от Юлия Кръстева


  • Roman Dzyk Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University


The article examines Julia Kristeva’s novel Murder in Byzantium, in which a typical structuralist provincial-imperial model of the world order is deconstructed from the standpoint of post-structuralism. It is assumed that the appeal to the history of Byzantium has certain autobiographical grounds. In this way, Kristeva demonstrates the relativity of the concepts of ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’ from a historical perspective: Byzantium, Bulgaria, France, the United States eventually dissolve into the “global village”, which is embodied in the novel in the image of Santa Barbara. Keywords: province; empire; post-structuralism; deconstruction; Julia Kristeva; Murder in Byzantium
