The paper is devoted to the theoretical problem of describing so-called polyvalent phenomena and their functioning in a literary work/artistic text. A number of terms in the discursive practices of the present day humanities have a different meaning in different poetic epochs. This is determined by the development of consciousness and, correspondingly by different ways of artistic reflection of reality. The paper presents a hypothesis of the appropriateness of formation of the tendency towards the transition of worldview concepts into poetic concepts and their backward transition towards reconstructed forms of archaic poetics. The process is observed in the material of such interdisciplinary phenomena (and inter-discursive terms, correspondingly) as myth, irony, grotesque, parody, and etc.
Key words: polyvalent phenomena, inter-discursive terms, normative poetics, poetic of individual styles, grotesque, myth, irony, parody, macabre motives, reconstructed forms of archaic poetics.
