Summary/Abstract: The reminiscence of literary Gothicism, that reappeared in the time of neo-romanticism becoming, next to neo-Baroque influences, a component of the Ukrainian modernism, also appeared in the small prose by Mykhailo Kotsiubynsky. This excellent writer applies Gothic novel convention in his works. He constructs the atmosphere of horror, puts his characters in a critical situation in order to indicate increasing social problems and to intensify the psychologism of his works. He deserves the title of the Ukrainian psychological prose master and a fully modern European author.
