Abstract

The article investigates the problem of modeling the childhood world in novels by N. Ammaniti "I am not afraid", "You and me", "As God commanded", A. d'Avenia "White, like milk, red, like blood", a history by A. Nanetti "My grandfather was a cherry tree" when the first contact between a child / teenager and the world of adults appears. Identified microdominants for the world of children in these authors: existential measurement of home and family (N. Ammaniti, A. Nanetti), father-son relations (N. Ammaniti), categorical coloring of the childhood world and seeking oneself (A. d'Avenia), unbreakable unity childhood - adulthood - old age (A. Nanetti). The dysharmony of the world manifests itself in the motives of violence, suffering, uncertainty of the child, which makes hero actively seek his place in society and his identity. The subjective narrative "I" of the child reflects the catastrophic attitude of the 21st century, seeks salvation in adults, but finds the strength to resist evil in the world only in its pure soul. It was found: the destruction of the ordered childhood world with positive images of home, father and mother is the reality of the 21st century.
