Abstract

The article examines metaphorical models of space conceptualization in the novel «Jane Eyre» by Charlotte Bronte. Metaphorical model is defined as a mental scheme of connection between two conceptual spheres involved in metaphorization, which are characterized by the unity of thematic correlation of nominative and figurative meanings. In the article conceptual correlates and conceptual referents of SPACE have also been identified. It has been proved that conceptual and personified metaphors are the most productive devices for lingual conceptualization of space in the novel «Jane Eyre» which form such models of SPACE as: 1) CONTAINER > RECEPTACLE / SHELTER, 2) ESSENCE, 3) SUBJECT that actualize the peculiarities of world perception of Charlotte Bronte as well as the originality of her artistic thinking.
