Статтю присвячено опису зовнішньо-фізіологічного наповнення концепту «жінка», детермінованого віковими змінами образів, що репрезентуються фемінним корпусом українського красного письменства ХХ сторіччя. Проаналізовано образний спектр героїнь за шкалою «вік / зовнішня врода». (The article is dedicated to the description of the external physiological content of the concept «woman» determined by the age-related changes of characters described by the feminine branch of the Ukrainian belles-lettres of the 20th century. According to the alternation of basic social and age-related statuses of a woman in the feminine prose of Ukraine’s Diaspora, the actualization of changes in the external imaginative field of the concept – represented by a wide range of descriptive types of different generations – takes place. The integral unit of the concept is amplified by the sub-conceptual feminine-differential components of a woman’s posture: tenderness → physical strength → drooping shoulders, which not only account for the contextual (semantic) notion of «beauty / typicality», but also expose the inner depth of psychological feelings of heroines. A great deal of characters of still young heroines may belong to the first type. Femininity, female defenselessness, selflessness, tenderness, and inner dignity become main features of heroines of this sub-conceptual series, mainly characteristic of representatives of intellectuals. A transition period from one age-related category to another inevitably tells on one’s posture. The tenderness of a girl usually changes into the physical strength of a woman who has material hardships on her shoulders, who faces the challenge of providing for her family in the tragic times of history when the main provider, the man, was claimed to be «enemy of the nation», was forced to serve in the army or had to do the military duty at his own will. The further semantic development of the concept «woman» in the feminine belles-lettres of the Ukrainian exile takes place due to the external physiological sub-concept «drooped in shoulders» which actualizes mainly age-related changes in posture. Thus, the concept «woman», exemplified by the feminine prose of the 20th century, described by the female author, acquires new bright aspects due to the imaginative visualization of physiological peculiarities of heroines, which makes their images artistically perfect and at the same time – realism-centric.)
