The reinterpretation of myths in the 21st-century Russian literature. Pelevin’s version of a theme of labyrinth
The present paper deals with some features of the postmodern interpretation of myths. The author, focusing on the work of the famous Russian postmodern writer Viktor Pelevin, tries to describe how computer and Internet technologies influence a literary text. The Helmet of Horror (2005) is a multi-layered postmodernist text that radically reinvents the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.
