The article highlights the most productive reflections of citation intertextuality in the documentary fictional prose of the Ukrainian Sixtiers. The attention is drawn to allusive and reminiscent forms as the most commonly used in nonfiction, which requires introduction of references and analogies from other literary works, references to previously heard or read, which forms the sole artistic dimension of the work. Allusive and reminiscent components are active intertextual techniques in the fiction and documentary prose text composition about Sixtiers. Their usage is entirely regular. Reminiscence being a cited display does not always match the original. It could be not accurate, put into converted commas, identified in the text by only a prepared reader. Reminiscences in the sixties recollections are mostly learned from works of art of this period representatives. They confirm unidirectionality of the stated public and personal position of its leaders. In these intertextual techniques stylization, subordination and penetration in the writing manner of reminiscences author are peculiar. Reminiscence might be changed into allusion and be read ambiguously. It depends on the readers’ apprehension. Indirect reference to literary sources embodies the writer’s idea of a full-scale reflection of the spiritual essence and the simultaneous realization of the artistic goal: to offer a universal picture of the world and clearly emphasize their participation in everyday ontological processes. Allusion being an intertextual techniques of memoir discourse doesn’t need a literalism and is interpreted through correlation of frequent used expression with an author narration. Allusive citation lets a writer transfer a drama of the event narrated, fill a text with an information. It prompts associative thinking while becoming as one of the implementation mode of the writer’s creative and analytical possibilities. Allusive component as a figure of speech of the fiction and documentary prose about Sixtiers is produced by a expressive analogical contexts (ideological, historical and political ones) of the era. This component manifests itself in various ways. In the intertextual area the allusion unlike the reminiscence was noticed to require unambiguous understanding and interpretation of the facts, some events or phenomena.
