Abstract. The article is devoted to the study of the novel by the contemporary English-speaking Irish writer Anne Enright "The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch" (2002). The topicality of the study is conditioned by the fact that Enright has provided a fundamentally new interpretation of the image of the heroine Eliza Lynch, a real historical personality of the XIX century, in modern Irish literature. In general, this female image is treated in a negative light and is always compared with the image of Lady Macbeth in existing few sources, which, in turn, deprives it of the uniqueness. The paper reveals ways to represent this key image, through which the problems of racial and ethnic identity, raised in the novel, and conflicts, occurring on this ground, are revealed. Specific techniques introduced by the writer contribute to the creation of another image of Eliza Lynch in the national (Irish) worldview: multifaceted, contradictory and fundamentally new. In the work the authorial position of Enright on this or that problem, topical for modern society, is analyzed.
