Abstract: The article offers a review of the monograph by O. V. Tomberg “Image. Value. Culture. Linguo-axiological aspects of research into artistic images of Old English literature” (Ekaterinburg, 2019). The monograph aims at working out a methodological approach within the framework of linguistic and linguo-axiological imagology and conducting a research into key artistic images of Old English literature on its basis. The monograph consists of five chapters: “Artistic Image as a Linguocultural Phenomenon”, “Linguoaxiological Highlights of Male Images in Old English Literature”, “Linguoaxiological Highlights of Female Images in Old English Literature”, “Image of God in Old English Poetic Linguoculture”, “Image of the Enemy as a Concentration of Anti-values of the Epoch”. In the first chapter the author determines theoretical foundations and puts forward a research model that can be applied for linguocultural analysis of images of various cultures and historical periods. The second, third, fourth and fifth chapters offer an analysis of major Old English images on the basis of this model. In conclusion, the author introduces a notion of imagosphere that is defined as a system of artistic images typical of a certain cultural and historical context. The monograph under review lets conclude that linguistic and linguo-axiological imagology can be considered as an effective approach to study axiological and discursive continuum of national culture.
