The perception of narrative time and space is a complex cognitive process. During the act of reading, a reader interacts with the narrative world by perceiving its temporal and spatial dimensions. Due to the human ability to perceive narrative time and space, the reader can understand deeper meaning of fiction.The article presents a comparative study of the perception of time and space in Russian and Georgian émigré literature of the 20th century. The article deals with the concept of time and space in Vladimir Nabokov’s Mary and in GrigolRobakidze’s The Snake’s Skin. The author of the article has presented an analysis of the reader’s perception of narrative time and space taking into account the protagonists’ experience and their perception of time and space in the novels.

Keywords: perception, time, space, memory, metaphysical world, Cognitive poetics, Vladimir Nabokov, Mary, Grigol Robakidze, The Snake’s Skin.
