A. Cantemir
consultative speech
«rhetorical speech nest–doll»


The paper is a continuation of a series of publications by the author on the poetics of A. Cantemir’s satires and is devoted to the interpretation of satires through the prism of speech modes – in particular, the mode of the sermon. The sermon is considered exclusively from an artistic point of view: as a speech of the consultative type (according to Aristotle), possessing a set of its own rhetorical techniques. A successive analysis of the functions of a «sermon» in five satires makes it possible to acknowledge the long–term benefits of the interpretation of satires from the perspectives of the sermon and confession modes, along with the possibility of studying the polyphonic tone of satires.
