Toropchina E.A., Khrushcheva O.A. LINGUOPOETIC PECULIARITIES OF JAMES JOYCE'S COLLECTION OF POEMS "CHAMBER MUSIC" James Joyce and his literary works characterized by deep content and extraordinary choice of language means have been exciting strong interest on the part of readers and motivating scientific research. His prose has been studied in details by linguists and literary scholars, but this paper deals with the analysis of his poetic collection entitled "Chamber music". The authors have carried out linguopoetic research of the poems and analyzed a range of means depicting music and colour schemes in particular. The study has proved the interconnection between music and lexemes, as well as between sounds and colours in the collection of poems. It has also stipulated the colour scheme value in Joyce's poetry. It is claimed that a definite shade of the palette mentioned in the poem presupposes the increased frequency of vowel sounds, and conversely. The research has relied on the evidence that intervals provide the basis for music pieces and serve as their basic palette. Given that music language structure is measured in semitones or intervals the colour scheme identified in the poems can be imprinted on the musical staff. The paper stipulates peculiar features of James Joyces' collection of poems are as follows: sound and colour synesthesia, musical sense, a great style of verse rhythms and metres, adaptation to genres of classical love lyrics and appeal to its mythological background. Linguopoetic peculiarities of James Joyce's poetry are supposed to produce an aesthetic effect and reveal the author's message and vision.Key words: linguopoetics, sound symbolism, cantilena, major, minor, synesthesia.
