The article deals with the autobiographical elements in the structure of the plot and their influence on the formation of the narrator image. The prototype of protagonist is a writer itself, the proto-plot is years of her life and work as a teacher in the town of Bibrka and village of Stoky. The author fills notes with her own emotions and feelings.
