The specifics of the temporal organization of the text have been disassembled, the definition of the organization of the text in several aspects has been revealed. The categories of objective and subjective time are analyzed. One of the main language means of expressing the category of time is «temporary» vocabulary, directly related to the events, place and time of actions that are associated with the heroes of the novel or in which they are during the narrative. Moreover, in addition to lexical units that are semantically correlated with the category of time, the grammatical forms of time can also be attributed to the means of expression. Summing up the analysis of the text of V. Pelevin’s work, the author revealed that the text’s temporality is updated at different levels, realizing the artistic design of the whole work. Time in works is strictly subjective, because it is based not on grammatical, but on logical and psychological fabrications and objective (ontological) nature – its presence and flow do not depend on anything, it is not controlled in any way.
