Abstract:

The text aims to present one of the aspects of Madеleine’s image in Maupassant’s novel “Bel-Ami” by focusing on her physical features. The ambiguous nature of the specific female character is analyzed as part of doubled image which also includes that of the Le Madеleine church in the light of the characteristic for the French fiction writer stylistic specifics of repetition, dispersal and multiplication on different textual levels. Different reasons for doing so presented are reported: scientific, contextual and biographical; toward the artistic work an approach is laid through linguistic and literature prism.

Keywords:

Madеleine; ambiguous; double; Maupassant; given name.
