This article clarifies the basic concepts of discourse and literary discourse. Discourse, in our opinion, can be defined as the ideological formalized speech activity of a language personality, which forms the verbal space of a particular science or art in interaction with other participants in this activity (active or passive), and also as a result of this activity – text or a collection of texts taking into account their communicative and extralinguistic characteristics. From this it follows that every text, taking into account its communicative and extralinguistic characteristics, is a discourse, i.e. a product of discourse, or, in another way, a discourse in the narrow sense of the word. For this reason, the ancient texts, which do not directly enter into communication, but need decoding, can not be regarded as discourse. Literary discourse in the narrow sense of this term can be defined as a fictional one, in which the depicted world corresponds to reality indirectly, refracting through its individual-author’s perception, being transformed in accordance with the author’s intention, i.e. conceptualized.
