According to the opinion of the author literary heritage of L.Holberg (Denmark, XVIII c) may be considered as a series of various realizations of one underlying ideal. Being statuary as to its essence, this ideal manifests self-sufficient and detached structure always identical with itself. But the main genre of Holberg’s work is the comedy. That’s why this ideal appears first of all indirectly, through the satirical demonstration of its opposite. Such opposite is brightly presented in image of Jeppe, the protagonist of his most renowned comedy “Jeppe paa Bierget” (1722). Jeppe is noteworthy for correlation of his weak self-consciousness and his degraded self-sensation i.e. by almost full absence of feeling of bounds proper to his own body. Close analysis shows that in accordance with nature of Holberg’s creative phantasy this antithesis of his ideal (as well as some other similar characters in Holbergian plays) is endowed with structure which is not identical with itself, unstable and disintegrating.
