Abstract: Drawing on the precepts of historical poetics, genre-genetic approach, and myth criticism, this paper puts forward and develops a morphology of the fictional model of the world in literary utopias. The central structuring principle underlying the model is derived from the Aristotelian understanding of organic being, which embraces outward form (topos), inner idea (ethos), and uniting substance (telos). The aforesaid tripartite concept is projected on ideal space, ideal morality, and ideal forms of governance and religion, characteristic of utopian reality. These structural levels are named toposphere, ethosphere, and teleosphere. The insularity of geographic location and physical composition of utopian space is reflected in the toposphere. Utopian morality forms a system of ethical foundations and comprises the ethosphere. Ideal forms of governance and religion mark a socio-political finality and constitute the teleosphere. The teleosphere is argued to crown the morphology of the fictional model of the world inasmuch as its semantic centre (aspirations for immortality) is congruent with notions of happiness on the level of the ethosphere, and with the spatial nucleus of the utopian model in the toposphere. The categories of toposphere, ethosphere, and teleosphere constituting the morphology of the utopian model of the world may provide a useful structural matrix by which utopian texts can be analysed, evaluated, and understood for their sociocultural significance. By highlighting some of the key components of the utopian genre in particular, the elaborated morphology has wider application in the area of cognitive mapping at large.
