The fact that the State Standard for the Basic and Complete Secondary Education (curriculum area "Languages and Literature") now distinguishes the culturological perspective in the analysis of literary works is a n undisputed achievement of the modern national school. It prompts viewing literature as a cultural phenomenon, introducing students to the core values of the world culture, revealing artistic features of literary works within a broad cultural context, establishing inter-art parallels,

According to the Concept of Literary Education, the secondary school course of world literature is designed to develop a creative reader possessing independent critical thinking, form a spiritual personality with humanistic worldview. Thus, the study of the classics of the world literature in the modern school should afford a holistic comprehension of literary works in a broad culturological context, form independent thinking skills, and develop students' artistic and creative abilities. A new direction of methodological research that is based on the integrated effect of different kinds of art on the student's personality has evolved in the modern pedagogical science (G. Belen'kyi, O. Bohdanova, G. Gogiberidze, V. Hrechyns'ka, D. Domans'kyi, Y e . Kolokol'tsev, Y u . L ' vova, V. Marantsman, T. Sukhova, B. Yusov, et al.). One of the types of literary analysis used as part of the secondary school world literature course work is culturological analysis, which involves the study of literature in the context of the national and world culture [1, p. 209].
