Background. The relevance of the chosen topic lies in setting of a broad cultural problem – the problem of intermediality, which is being developed by Russian and foreign researchers. The aim of the work is to identify the manifestations of the principles of intermediality in different kinds of art of the second half of the XX century based on a comprehensive analysis.
Materials and methods. The problem is examined by the material of Christa Wolf’s novel “Medea. Voices” and the screen adaptation of the antique plot directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini “Medea”. The structural-descriptive method, the comparison, as well as the methodology of intermedial analysis were used in the research.
Results. The works of the authors, interpreting the ancient story of Medea, were compared by several criteria. The depiction of separate images, referring to separate motives, using the atmosphere-creating methods, has revealed similarities. The article considers several meanings of the notion “intermediality” that are applicable to the mentioned works.
Conclusions. The comparison allows concluding the proximity of interpretations belonging to different kinds of art. The term “intermediality” is used in the investigated works in its transmedial, ontological, partly transformational meanings, outlined in the article.
