AbstractThe novel of the Ukrainian contemporary writer Oksana Zabuzhko (born in 1960) Field Studies in Ukrainian Sex (1998) can be appropriately attributed to the fiction critique (critical fiction) movement of the turn of the twenty-first century. The article identifies emotional and psychological problems in the relationship between a man / woman in the complex syntax of the novel, which is a sign of O. Zabuzhko’s idiostyle. O. Zabuzhko’s parents’ biographical facts are woven into the fabric of the novel. They mentally influenced the formation of the phenomenon of the genius of the Ukrainian writer of the turn of the twentieth–twenty-first centuries, which arose through pain as an overcoming of the feeling of fear and the complex of slave consciousness thanks to love, which fills with meaning any activity of an individual: art, life, relationships.
