Abstract
The article, based upon the example of the novel "Legend. Novel of Barbarossa" (2013) written by Iskander Pala (born in 1958) being one of the most popular authors of Turkish mass literature of 2000-th, who has investigated typological particularities of the national historical and adventurous genre. It has been proved that plot-composition and image-bearing structure in the novels of such kind rest on one-sided, unhistorical concept of the reality having the aim to prove Turks superiority against other peoples and to restore their bygone leadership in the Moslem world. Cliche topics and plot courses have been evaluated to demonstrate all the "century magnificence" of the Osman state in the XVI century. Special attention was drawn to studying narrative strategies which I. Pala keeps to create mythologized characters of the "magnificent century", namely Khyzyr Khaireddin Barbarossa the talented naval commander and Mediterranean corsair (1475-1546).
