Summary/Abstract: The article provides an analysis of spatial motifs in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s "August 1914". The analysis focuses on the writier’s peculiar strategy which — among other things — alters meaning of motifs well-known from the Russian literary tradition, for example, the road, the center or the household. The Author emphasizes the fact that spatial discourse prevails in particular stages of the storyline, and thus the analysis of how spatial motifs are distributed allows to perceive their compositional role which touches upon both "August 1914" as well as "The Red Wheel" cycle as a whole.
