In the course of our studying animal English and Russian literary works (fairy tales, short stories, novels) we found out that the set of represented animals is very diverse. Animal characters typical for one culture sometimes cannot be acceptable for another. Moreover, most of them, in both English and Russian cultures have a dual nature, i.e. they show both positive and negative qualities. Thus, fictional animals in different cultures possess different human qualities, it testifies to the individuality of creative thinking of the specific people. We compared Russian and English literature about animals and saw that they have a lot in common, as the peoples of the world live on one planet and are developed according to the general laws of history. Nevertheless, literary work also demonstrates the national identity of each people, its history, geographical features and culture. Sometimes fictional animals are like people by their manners, speech, and behavior of the people of the country where they come from. It is quite natural, as literature has always been a reflection of real life. Fluffy, furry, fanged, or feathered, many unforgettable literary animal characters make lasting impressions and teach us all how to be better humans through their examples of loyalty, bravery, and cleverness.
