In the novel The Time Machine, the features of the top concept become blurred, as they are overlaid with the features of the bottom concept. In the novel by H. G. Wells, the emotive concept of fear forms a fusion with the concepts of darkness and light. Fear unites different levels of the novel's artistic space. The binary concepts of darkness and light actively model the artistic space in novel The Time Machine. These concepts are closely related to the binary opposition of top-bottom concepts. In addition, they perform ontological, epistemological, axiological and aesthetic functions. The study of the features of artistic space in the novel The Time Machine opens up opportunities for further research of the artistic model of the world by H. G. Wells and the problems of modeling artistic space in the literature.
