Abstract: The article traces the process of forming historical tale genre in N.M. Karamzin's prose. Comparing the earlier tale Nataliya, Boyar Daughter with the later literary work Marfa-Posadnitsa, the author arrives at the conclusion that Karamzin's movement towards historicism and changes in the genre structure of the tale are based on the writer's yearning to give a deeper psychological insight and a fuller representation of factors influencing the inner world of a person.
Key words: N.M. KARAMZIN, HISTORICISM, PSYCHOLOGICAL INSIGHT, TALE
