The role of tropes in revealing the meaning of the concepts of “victim” and “victimhood” (based on the plays by A.N. Ostrovsky “Without a Dowry”, “Late Love”, “The Last Victim”

Annotation

We consider the concepts of “victim” and “victimhood” in the socio-psychological plays of A.N. Ostrovsky and the singularity of artistic means, which the playwright refers to in depicting the circumstances of life and the fate of his characters. We examine the typology of female images, which, due to certain circumstances, appear in the role of the victim, and victimhood – the most important personality trait – determines the actions of all female characters. We pay special attention to the significance of tropes in the transmission of the characters' psychological state, their complex emotional experiences.
