The subject of the research of this scientific article is mythological communication. The purpose of the work is to analyze and understand the meaning of mythological communication in V. Pelevin's novels of the 1990s and 2000s and compare it in the works of the selected stages using historical-literary, comparative, archetypal methods and the method of mythopoetic analysis. The problem of this work is the significance of mythological communication in Victor Pelevin's novels of the 1990s and 2000s. The relevance of the research is explained by the fact that modern man currently continues to experience the influence of mythological images, motives, archetypes, so there is a need to understand exactly how myths can affect thinking. To better understand this, it is necessary to pay attention to how mythological communication is expressed in Victor Pelevin's novels of the 1990s and 2000s. The article discusses the concepts of mythological communication and mythological archetypes. The classification of basic archetypes according to Carl Jung is given, where each archetype has its own characteristic manifestations. The paper also analyzes the similarities and differences between the functions of mythological communication in the novels of the 1990s and 2000s. The material of this study was the following literary texts: Victor Pelevin's novels of the 1990s "Omon Ra", "Insect Life", "Chapaev and the Void", "Generation "P"" and the artistic texts of this author of the 2000s "Numbers", "Helmet of Horror", "Empire V".
