Generated Texts: Reading Strategy and Interpretational Options

Abstract (in English): 

The paper is devoted to the reading and critical reflection of the generated electronic literary texts. From the structural point of view all textones of generated texts can be divided into standard schemes or patterns (word combinations or the whole sentences that are switched according to the software algorithms). Authors use these schemes to make generated texts close to the natural human language. If we look closer, for example, at generative elit works, most of their verbal patterns look like meaningful expressions. But what makes them meaningful and what kind of meaning can readers get from these patterns? Is it possible to catch the esthetic idea of the whole generated work analyzing these verbal patterns? One of the strategies to reveal the author’s aesthetic concept of the generated work is to identify the key words grid of the separate textone as well as of the whole work. The key words grid allows to catch the thematic dominant and then move to the interpretive strategies of the whole literary work.
