Legal hermeneutics is a field that studies the process of interpreting legal texts, and its appearance is considered to be the same as the spread and acceptance of Roman law in the Middle Ages. The preservation, interpretation, and transmission of important texts of Roman law led to the emergence of the special field of hermeneutics. In later periods, especially during the crisis or modernization of the legal tradition, the problems of text, interpretation and meaning in laws led to the revival of legal hermeneutic concerns and traditions. Emotions are an integral part of human life. They reflect the human world. The study of the reflection in language of a person's worldview and emotions, his attitude to the world, as well as the study of emotions in the text logically fits into the cognitive-discursive direction of modern linguistics. Emotional information in the text can be expressed by units of all levels of the language, starting from phonetic and prosodic, ending with syntactic ones. In speech, the maximum load on the performance of the emotive function is carried by intonation, interjections play a significant role, and only in third place is vocabulary with emotional connotation. Comparisons do not always directly convey the emotional state of the characters, but they do help to realize the emotional background and tone of artistic works, to convey the imagery and expressiveness of the utterance, which allows the reader to better understand the emotional states of the characters. Stable comparisons are often used by writers when describing people's appearance or psychological state. The choice of an object in these comparisons is determined by the writer's own associations. This article discusses comparative constructions that characterize a person's appearance. Since the description of a person's external appearance is always value-based, its characteristics can be distributed according to two oppositions, positive and negative. Comparative constructions in works of art perform explanatory and emotional-evaluative functions. The aim is to study comparative constructions in the works of I. S. Turgenev as a means of describing and evaluating the appearance of a person. These visual tools can create a positive or negative image, depending on which standard is the basis of the comparison.These studies can be used in teaching Russian language and literature, intercultural communication courses, compiling linguo-culturological dictionaries, etc.
