The author carries out a comparative analysis of the titles of the novels by the French writer M. Houellebecq and their translations into the Russian, English and Italian languages. Also the degree of adequacy of the translated titles to the original ones is analyzed and the deformations are revealed. Finally, the results of the study are summarized and conclusions are drawn.
