Abstract. The paper aims to identify the artistic originality of Muriel Spark’s story "The Public Image". The scientific originality of the research is connected to the fact that the attention of literary critics at all times was turned to the novels of the English writer, while her small prose was ignored. It is necessary to investigate the principle of theatricality in Muriel Spark’s story "The Public Image". The results have shown that in the work, there is a unity of epic and dramatic beginnings with the high prevalence of the latter: significant attention is paid to the gestures, the position of the characters in space, the plastics of the image, but dramatization has farcical nature, the objective physical world is pictured plastically and visibly, which creates the theatricality effect, the illusion of stage.
Key words and phrases: Мюриэл Спарк, театральность, повесть "На публику", портрет, ирония, Muriel Spark, theatricality, story "The Public Image", portrait, irony
